All Dogs & Cats Go To Heaven!

When you are ready to add a fur-child to your family, please adopt one. There is nothing better than rescuing an animal in need. Remember, adoption is love, and love is a lifelong commitment! Do not be the reason why a cat or dog needs to be rescued!

Stop The Rain

It’s raining cats and dogs outside
At times this seems so true,
So many little ones run scared
Is it because of you?

Some folks decide to get a pup
They think they’re cute and fun,
But soon they have a grown up dog
Who needs a place to run!

Their yard might not be big enough
So they turn dog away,
He now lives on the lonely streets
Quite scared to be a stray!

The little kitten in the store
Looked cute enough to buy,
They did not realize at that time
That little kittens cry!

Instead of taking kitty back
They simply let her go,
She’s now confused and all alone
Not sure who’s friend or foe!

It’s great to have a puppy dog
Or kitten fill your heart,
But they need us to care for them
So we must do our part!

Be really sure you know how much
A pet will need your care,
And then be sure your heart is filled
With extra love to share!

Too many pets get tossed away
Cause people have no clue,
It’s raining cats and dogs outside
Too bad this is so true!

To Die A Stray!

Everywhere you look, you will see a stray cat. They are roaming the streets in search of food, warmth, and love. Most of these strays will not survive. To die, without ever experiencing unconditional love, is something that should never happen. Unfortunately, it happens every day.

Sad Goodbyes

Five cats adorned the streets last night
In search of food and love,
But one to weak to carry on
So she was called above!

Four cats adorned the streets last night
In need of warmth from cold,
The eldest died in someone’s yard
His body, just too old!

Three cats adorned the streets last night
Coyote at their feet,
The youngest caught, could not escape
Coyote now could eat!

Two cats adorned the streets last night
Their walk was long and far,
One made it to the park to rest
The other, death by car!

One cat adorned the streets last night
His heart could take no more,
He closed his eyes and went to sleep
And joined the other four!

This tale is very sad but true
Too many cats are strays,
We need to find them loving hearts
And brighten all their days!

For every cat deserves a home
They have so much to give,
Not one should have to die a stray
They all deserve to live!

Trade-Ins Not Allowed!

One of the saddest things that happens in rescue is when a family decides to “surrender” their senior dog or cat, so that they can make room for a new puppy or kitten!  I actually have few words to describe how angry this makes me! Pets are family and family is forever! If you feel differently about this, please, do not adopt!

Too Old To Die

I used to be a puppy dog
So young and full of zest,
But now I’m old, my body aches
Each day I need more rest!

I still want hugs and belly rubs
And special times with you,
Please don’t discard me cause I’m old
Don’t tell me we are through!

Just yesterday my beagle friend
Was taken to the vet,
They put him down cause he was old
A puppy they’ll now get!

One day last month the yellow lab
Who lived right up the street,
Was taken to the pound to die
With new lab at dad’s feet!

I might be old and out of play
But my heart is like new,
It’s where I keep our memories
And all my love for you!

Do you not love me anymore
Because I’m old and gray?
Please let me stay until my end
Do not throw me away!

You’re not as young as you once were
And when you laugh you pee,
But I love you no matter what
Can’t you do that for me?

I know I’m old and near the end
Soon my time will be up,
But please don’t throw my life away
To make room for a pup!

Forever And A Day!

If you take me into your life
I promise not to stray,
I’ll give you things you never had
Forever and a day!

Each morning you’ll see happiness
I’ll show it with my tail,
For when you wake, I’ll be right there
My love for you won’t fail!

As you get ready for your day
I will not leave your side,
Each step you take, I’ll be with you
I’ll keep up with your stride!

When it is time for you to leave
To go to work or play,
I’ll make sure that our home is safe
My barks keep bad away!

Each hour I will wait for you
To come back home to me,
And when you walk in our front door
My happy dance you’ll see!

Together we will eat some food
Then play and watch TV,
We’ll snuggle up, I’ll keep you warm
This is how it should be!

When you decide to go to sleep
I’ll lay down on my bed,
But chances are, when you wake up
I’ll be in yours instead!

If you take me into your life
Then this is what I’ll pray,
God bless this person who saved me
Forever and a day!

Words From A Dying Pet!

One of the saddest times in life, is when we have to say goodbye to our beloved fur child. I think we all go through that stage where we feel like we will never be able to adopt again, because it is too painful when they die. The truth is, we need to keep adopting and rescuing. This is what our dogs and cats want us to do. They want us to honor them by saving more!

When I Die

When God calls me to take me home
With tears, I’ll leave your side,
But as I cross the Rainbow Bridge
Please know that He’s my guide!

I will be safe and free from pain
As I lay on my cloud,
Forever I’ll watch over you
I know you’ll make me proud!

For when I was a lonely fur
Abandoned and abused,
You took me in and gave me love
Our two hearts soon were fused!

Because of you my soul has healed
You taught me how to trust,
These past few years, you’ve had one goal
My happiness, a must!

Each day you’ve help erase my past
And made my future bright,
My favorite time we spend as two?
Our cuddles every night!

I know I mean the world to you
My death will break your heart,
But I will always be with you
In truth, we’ll never part!

At first you will be overwhelmed
With sadness and with tears,
But please do this one thing for me
To honor all our years?

Please go and save another fur
So many need your love,
And know that this will be a gift
You send to me above!

Too many furs do not know what
A life with love can be,
So when I die, please rescue one
Will you do this for me?

Do not shut down your giving heart
Because I had to leave,
Please save another broken fur
They’ll help you as you grieve!

When God calls me to take me home
I’ll cross the bridge and wait,
And when you save another soul
I’ll prance right through His gate!

Stray Purrs!

There are too many stray cats and kittens that are living horrible lives. They spend their days searching for food, while at night, they are running from death.  This should not be. Every purr should be in a loving home. Every purr should be spayed or neutered.

In The Wind

Deep in the woods where I can’t see
I hear the sound of purrs,
The cold night wind brings their voice near
Our lost and lonely furs!

I can’t imagine how they cope
With all they have to fear,
For in the wind there’s something else
Coyote sounds I hear!

A pack of them must be close by
Their young ones need to eat,
So in the wind they’ll hunt and kill
Our purrs and death will meet!

The thought of this makes my tears flow
These purrs should have a home,
They should not have to run from death
They should not have to roam!

If everyone would make the choice
To neuter or to spay,
Then little purrs would not be born
To live and die a stray!

Each night when it is time to sleep
I try hard not to cry,
All purrs should be home warm and safe
Yet in the wind they die!

Pets Are Family!

To be a parent to a fur child, you must totally commit to treating them as a family member, because that is what they are. You should only adopt if you have room in your heart, and in your home, for unconditional love! Fur kids are a gift from God and they deserve the very best!

Beneath That Tree

Don’t cry for me for I am gone
I left the earth last night,
I tried to prove my love for you
But failed and lost the fight!

You threw me food and gave me drink
When you could find the time,
But there were days I went without
I think that is a crime!

The other night it rained quite hard
I hid beneath that tree,
You put me out to do my stuff
But then neglected me!

I was so cold, the wind was harsh
I cried the whole night through,
When morning came, you brought me in
And hit me with your shoe!

I never knew what I did wrong
I must have been born bad,
Cause every night and every day
I seemed to make you mad!

Each day I tried to show you love
With licks and wagging tail,
Each day you treated me the same
You broke me without fail!

So as old age came creeping in
I lost my will to live,
My licks and wagging tail ran out
I had no more to give!

You put me out one final time
To sleep beneath that tree,
I looked above and prayed to God
To come and rescue me!

With my last breath, I still loved you
Quite loyal till the end,
No matter what you did to me
My love was not pretend!

So now I hope your hate is gone
And you’ll do this for me,
Please dig a hole to be my grave
My place beneath that tree!

No Fairy Tale For Them!

There are too many stray cats that are struggling to survive. People either abandon them, throw them away, or never bother to get them neutered or spayed. These poor little cats and kittens did not ask to be born, but they are the ones who suffer. We have to do more to help them. After all, they are a gift from God!

I’m Going Home!

I wish I lived a fairy tale
And only lost my mitten,
But late last night, God rest her soul
I lost my final kitten!

You see, I had nowhere to go
My dad had little cash,
So as my mom slept in her room
He threw me in the trash!

With seven kittens on the way
I struggled to survive,
I knew I had to do my best
To keep my kids alive!

I gave birth in a cold dark park
And it got worse from there,
Because I had no food or warmth
I could not meet their care!

So one by one they fell asleep
They barely lived a day,
But one of them, my little girl
Looked like she’d fight to stay!

Try as she might, she could not win
The fight against her death,
So as I purred a lullaby
She took her final breath!

I wish I lived a fairy tale
And all cats had a home,
But as I look around the streets
So many of us roam!

I think I’ll join my kittens now
They might need me up there,
I’m weak and scared and all alone
In Heaven, I’ll get care!
