In Loving Memory

All of us have lost a beloved pet in our lives and it effects you just as much as losing a human family member. They are a part of our family forever.

We have created this page to honour those animals that have brought us so much joy. If you have any photos of your pets that have gone to the Rainbow Bridge, please email them to me and I will place them here as a tribute.

For those of you who don't know the Rainbow Bridge poem, here it is:

The Rainbow Bridge

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 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 or old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt and maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by. These animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each had someone very special to them who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when suddenly one 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 that 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.

And then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

In Memory of Stormy
Submitted by Tim Wittenberg

Stormy was a therapeutic pony for many years...at least 12 years.
He was a proud little man...always loved the kids and did his best.
Sometimes could be very silly in the paddock and always wanted to
rear when wormed...but when the kids came - he was the most gentle
pony ever. He won the CANTRA award for best theraputic horse/pony
in Canada for 2001. The most well remembered horse ever...approx 32
at the time he left us

In Memory of Pixie

In loving memory of "PIXIE" foster kitten of Maria's. Went to the Rainbow Bridge due to Hydrocephaly (swelling of the brain). This kitten broke my heart. She was so sweet.


In Loving Memory of MAX
Submitted by Mike _ June Stephen
This is a picture of our dog MAX. He is no longer with us, hopefully he is waiting at the rainbow bridge.

We adopted him from the North Vancouver SPCA and he was our constant companion for the next five years until he died.

We took him everywhere with us and he became well known on the North Shore. He touched many lives with his intelligence and gentleness and is very much missed by everyone that knew him

In Loving Memory of "Hutch"
Submitted by a Katie's Place Volunteer

We have lost our beloved Hutch. He came to us almost two years ago lonely and afraid. Inside and out, Hutch had strength. He came to trust and love us. We became his family and his home.

He continually graced our lives, patiently waiting each day to greet us at his door. He nurtured the young, frightened, FIV/FeLV cats. He played with them and protected them. Hutch was the king of his castle. He held the power among the adult cats and few would challenge his authority. For the last few months, his illness had been wearing him down.

He no longer waited for us. He took very little interest in life. He was not eating or drinking and he was fading before our eyes. The time had come to let him go with dignity. We will miss him, but we are grateful to have loved him.

Farewell, dear friend. Hutch died at 2:30 p.m. at home (Katie's Place) and surrounded by family on Monday December 23, 2002.

Hutch was one of the first Katie's Place cats and he was positive for FeLV. He arrived with his pal, Starsky, who tested negative and has long since been adopted. Hutch was with us for two years, and after that much time with a cat he feels like your own. We miss him.
