MAKE A DIFFERENCE..ADOPT A PET..SAVE A LIFE..FIND A FRIEND
In Loving Memory
Rainbow Bridge poem
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... Author unknown...
Sally Freeman, an FPALR alumni passed away …. She was loved and missed by all who knew her and heard of her passing. Nothing in my life has hurt me worse. She was my soul mate every single day, and I loved her as if she were my daughter. It was a pleasure to remove her, with FPALR, over 11 years ago, from the abuse she received from her former owner. Sally will be in my heart forever, and her best pup-friend Emma Freeman, also an FPALR Alumni from 2005 will sadly miss her friend Sally, with whom she shared her water and food bowls, and doggy bed. (yest, they played, ate, drank and slept next to each other. We are very brokenhearted from her passing. May God Bless her and lead her to the Rainbow Bridge, where I hope to meet her one day.~ Brian P. Freeman ~
Rest in Peace Sweet TJ... It is with a much heavy heart that we tell you that TJ lost his short battle with malignant sarcoma this weekend. His illness came about very quickly and very aggressively. This is hard for me personally to write because TJ was one of the 4 dogs we rescued from CACC the first and only time I ever went there in October, TJ could not get out of there any faster than I could. Fortunately, TJ was able to live the rest of his life in a wonderful foster home who loved him deeply, taught him how to love again, taught him some sign language because he was hard of hearing and fed him the best meals he's probably ever had his entire life, and just let him be him and be comfortable and happy. One day we will see you again at the Rainbow Bridge sweetheart! Until then, play as you will... ~R~

Henry you will be missed
Henry and Friend
It is with heavy hearts that we write this. In the very early morning on April 29th 2011, our dear Henry went to Rainbow Bridge. He was only with us on the earth a short while, but will be in our hearts forever. Henry came to live with us, from FPALR, on June 24 2006, when he was approximately 6 months of age. During his time with us, he BLESSED soooo many people. Everyone in the neighborhood loved him, for he was the official greeter on our corner. Henry enjoyed bellyrubs, long walks, ball, his dinosaur toy, going to camp and visiting grandma and grandpa. His favorite foods were bananas, yogurt, cheese, and doggy biscuits. This past year he joined FB and has touched numerous hearts around the world and is sorely missed. Henry's passing was so unexpected, as his stomach had bloated and flipped. It was too late for him. We wanted to let you know of his passing, as we clearly remember his adoption day, the most special day of our lives. Thank you for the biggest gift we could have ever have been given, our most precious dog. It seems like it was not long ago that we thanked you for saving him, for letting us become his parents. We want to thank you again for that privledge.
God Bless, April and Joe Malez
