Rainbow Bridge


Baelish crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 29, 2019.  He was born with congenital defects that we were unable to help him overcome.  We took him to an emergency vet and they determined that his defects were too great and his quality of life would be too negatively impacted to perform the surgery we all thought might save his life.  He was let go peacefully and humanely after a short nine weeks of life.


Our little Monkey girl crossed the rainbow bridge overnight on September 12, 2020 in the wee hours of morning. She fought valiantly after being diagnosed with Panleukopenia but her small body was just not able to keep up with the demands of fighting the virus. She had been found outdoors in the brutal Arizona sun and heat, covered in blisters and missing fur. Monkey was a spunky girl who would growl into her wet food as she ate it and she loved her foster mama very much.

Monkey is a perfect example of why we do what we do, even when the outcome isn't as we hoped. She would have died a horrible death outdoors and would have never known the comfort and love of a home. While we all wish that she had beaten this awful virus, we are all still grateful for the time we had with her and we are glad to know she did not go alone or unloved. We must take comfort where we can. In her memory, we continue the fight.
