In Memory Thank You
Humbled by the giving nature of our grieving supporters
we have created a page to honor the families that have donated on
behalf of the pets that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you
for thinking of our organization during such a difficult
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the
Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the
Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with
lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is
always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who
have 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. Her bright eyes are
intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run
from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her
faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your
special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion.
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

hart is saddened to share that one of our dear volunteers said a
sorrowful and unexpected final farewell to a beloved member of her
family. Rescued as an 8-week old puppy, the beautiful and
intelligent Indie passed away this week. She would've been 12 years
old this coming March. An approved therapy dog, Indie was a gentle
spirit who loved her family and the great outdoors.
hart was deeply moved to receive a generous donation in Indie's
memory. Though not a hart dog, Indie's family shared that without
rescue organizations like hart, Indie, their two rescued dogs, and
many more just like them wouldn't have a chance to enjoy happy,
Those of us who support animal rescue know that rescue dogs
become so much more than simply pets we own. They are beloved
members of our families. For those of us who see their potential,
we are blessed to learn so much from these warm souls, like
She loved to swim, cuddle, hang out in the garden or on the
deck, and go for on great off leash adventures.
Indie showed us that money can't buy happiness and it's the
simple pleasures in life usually mean the most.
Rest in Peace gentle Indie and thank you for reminding us all of
what matters most in life.
Oliver was adopted from hart in 2009 and renamed
to Scruff - a fitting name. He lived a happy life with a loving
family until his passing. His family will miss him dearly and
wanted to honor his memory by helping other dogs in
need. For his birthday, Rieley asked for donations to
hart instead of birthday gifts so that other dogs could be helped.
Hunter and Kaelyn Hicks also provided donations. hart is very
grateful for the beautiful cards, supplies, and gift certificates
in honor of Scruff.
