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 and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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 the Rainbow Bridge together.

Hi Rhoda, Here are a few pictures we have of whisky. Thank you so much for your kind words and support today. We really appreciate it.
Hannah, Victoria, Kathleen and John
Sparky (Baba, Princess)
As we discussed it was a shock when my Wee Girl went to the Rainbow Bridge, as the Vet had told me that all had gone well, and then I got that dreaded call, but I would like to thank-you for your words of comfort that you gave to me.
The compassion, dignity, and respect that you gave my Wee Girl in her final journey will give me solace for the rest of my days.
Should anybody reading this wish the same for their beloved member of the family, because that is what our pets are, members of the family, I would advice that you look no further than Rhoda, the service that she provides is second to none.
Forever in my heart until we meet again my Wee Sparky.xxx
She was always climbing the bars of her cage and wanting to come out for cuddles and explore. She definitely had a huge personality! She will be sorely missed.
I would like to thank you for being so kind and understanding, you really made a hard day brighter for us.
I have attached some lovely pictures of our hamster Pumba.
She was very curious and loved exploring her cage and foraging for food. Her favourite treat was monkey nuts and she spent a lot of time staring at us from her bridge. She was an amazing hamster who will be dearly missed.
Thank you for your help and understanding. Again, you have made a very hard day brighter for the both of us.
Jordan & Christie
Dear Rhoda many thanks for the marvelous send off you gave our beloved boy Spey today. You put our minds at rest with your kind words and total professionalism ,and we will be forever grateful to you for that. His passing has left a big hole in our lives and he will be greatly missed but we can rest in the knowledge he got the send off he rightly deserved.
Many Thanks Kevin, Julie, Thomas and Rachel Young
FOREVER IN MEMORY
“Sleep my lovely friend, sleep…
you already need to rest.
Maybe you’ll have your piece of heaven.
Maybe it will be more beautiful there than here.
Maybe you’ll meet those who are no longer here …
Dream my lovely friend, dream…
it’s always beautiful in the dreams.
A warm home, enough space for your faithful heart.
The time will come to meet to cuddle your ears
and go for a walk together again.
But dream today and time will dry tears …”
Misiu has been with us for 12 years. He was a wonderful dog, a real friend. His illness was the reason for our parting. We experienced it very much and he will always have a special place in our hearts …
I can’t find words to express my thanks for a huge support in this difficult time for us. Your professionalism has helped us to experience this sad day more easily. Thank you for all.
In loving memory of Charlie, our golden boy.(March 2005- Sunday 22nd September 2019) Charlie has been our guiding light over the last 12 years and we feel blessed to have known him. Run free darling boy.
A special thankyou to Rhoda for facilitating us all on Monday. You made the final fair well as beautiful and with dignity as it could be for Charlie. Knowing he was in your caring hands while we spent the short time apart when he was cremated eased the grief. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone going through the agony of loosing their furry friend.
Ben & Shonagh
I would like to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for cremating Tanner for me and being so lovely and kind. I would like to put up a photo of Tanner on your website if that’s alright? Just a small memory of him as my class and friends would like to pay a tribute to him too.
Again thank you so so so very much an I wish you a very nice day.
Wanted to thank you so much for your caring and kindness when I brought Leo to you.
The light has went out of my life, I know I’ll get it back but part of me went with my wee boy when I lost him yesterday. He had such a beautiful nature and I spent the most amazing 15 years with him.
You were so caring and understanding and the sunflower tube you gave him back to me will never leave me and gives me great comfort at this heart breaking time.
So glad there is people like you out there to help pet owners keep their pets close at such an awful time.
Thank you so much again. This is a wee picture of Jambo.
Thank you for your kindness and understanding today when we said goodbye to our beautiful Ragdoll kitten flora. You have changed our view of pet cremation and will never use anywhere else now. ❤️
Here are some pictures of Flora
Many thanks again and much love to you and your family ❤️
Thanks again for all your comforting words and support today sending our Horace on his way. Lorraine and Luke xx
Here’s a few pictures of our handsome Zak in all his favourite places; the garden, the beach, the sofa, the car and the bed!!
Thank you so much for being so kind and compassionate to us at such a difficult time. You really helped us so much when making his final arrangements. You are so easy to talk to and have such empathy and understanding. Zak was a huge part of our family and we miss him so much. We have lots of wonderful memories to hold onto and this is how we’ll always remember him; full of fun, his big aussie smile and even bigger fluffy tail!
With all our love and warmest wishes,
Susan & Andrew
This is pictures of Mischa, thank you for all you done for us regarding taking care off Mischa
Please find some pictures about Alvin.
We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for your kindness and your condolence.
Thank you very much
Norbert and Anita Siladi
Thanks again for today. I really appreciate the care you took with Lily and the way you have presented her remains is lovely.
I’ve attached a photo, it was hard to find one without her brother Patch as they were glued at the hip. He’ll miss most her for sure. She wasn’t the most photogenic dog either so that made it tricky to find one! I have also attached photos with Patch, and one with the whole family (Cousin Leo, Dodger, Alma, Lily, & Patch)
Many thanks, and best wishes
April 2007 – January 2020
From the minute I messaged you after the loss of our gorgeous foster boy, you were so kind and helpful.
We can’t thank you enough for being so caring and amazing during the process. Our boy couldn’t be in better care.
Thank you so much again!
Thank you so much for your care and respect today with Milo’s passing.
We’ve picked out a photo of him that we think would suit the memorial page.
Thank you again!
Please find the photo attached of our boy Amos.
Thank you again so much for yesterday.
Trixie -1-5-2007 Died 7-3-2020
Here Lies Our Pet Dog Trixie she is at Peace now on her way to the rainbow bridge in the sky. We will all miss you and your sister Lady will miss you as well.
Rhoda thank you for taking great care of our Trixie with kindness and dignity
She really was an amazing dog. Missing her so much.
Will always think of Bella, she was crazy but she worshiped me and was always following me like a stalker, but friendly & loyal. What else do you need in a dog?
Thank you so much for today. I cant thank you enough for your amazing and quick service.
What can I say about Summer, she was the smallest of a litter of 9 but the fiestiest by far, I instantly fell in love with her. When I first went to see Summer at 6wks old she was so small she could fit in the palm of my hand, this was where her first nickname of peanut came from, it wasn’t long after I brought her home at 10wks old that her second nickname became clear, Evel Knievel because she was fearless and Roadrunner because she was fast. In the blink of an eye she would run past you from one end of the house to the other and back. Summer had the sweetest nature, she would often raise her nose to request a kiss. She loved to be loved. Her favourite place was in your arms stretched up to the shoulder where she would lay her head and each night she would listen to a story from her Granny before she went to bed. Summer and me however, had our own nightly ritual where she got a back massage and 1. 2. 3 kisses where kiss number 3 made me the luckiest mummy in the whole universe because the universe is so big it has no boundaries. For a little bunny boy could this girl jump it just so happened she liked to jump onto my bed not unknown to destroy a memory foam pillow or brand new duvet set but who could stay mad at that sweet little face? Summer, I would have given my life for yours, I will forever be the luckiest mummy in the whole world to have had you by my side. A piece of my heart died the day yours stopped beating. I knew when I left you at the vets you wouldn’t be coming home to me in the same way but I at least had to give you that chance. There will never be a day I don’t think of you. You are me, I am you. Even your sister who you couldn’t be in the same part of the house as succumbed to you when she saw your lifeless body. Despite the discontent between you both even she will miss having you at home with us.
Until we meet again my little princess my heart will forever remain incomplete. I love you baby girl, more than anything else in the world. Binky free, I’ll meet you at the bridge. ❤🌈 ❤
Thank you for today, I really do appreciate you taking Summer so quickly. Your professionalism, empathy & caring nature shine through in all you do.
This is a picture of Summer as she was in her cheeky wee self.
Firstly thank you for looking after our special boy Stan today. I have attached a photo of Stan that summed him up always smiling.
Once again thank you and I will highly recommend your service to all my pet friends.
Thank you for caring for my beautiful Marley boy on his final journey home x
My Marley was the best boy ever and loved by everyone I was blessed to be his mummy for 18 years . My life will never be the same without him . Your love and care for him was second to none thank you from Marley’s mummy . Evelyn
She was a very inquisitive and sassy guinea pig who enjoyed her independence but was never too far from one of her friends. Her favourite activity was snuggling up in her fleece tunnel and she enjoyed eating her carrots and peppers the most. She was an absolutely amazing girl who will be deeply missed by both ourselves and her friends.
Again, thank you for making a bad day a little brighter.
Jordan & Christie
Thank you so much for today the care and love put into her to rest easier makes me feel so much better about it.
She fought really hard and has a very playful personality. Out of her sisters she’s definitely the boss. I don’t know when she was born but she’s been in my care for just over a year and she’s always been fairly timid but also very loving but when it came to her sisters she would squeak a lot and tell them what to do or chase them round the cage if she was telling them off.
Rue is a lovely little angel and I couldn’t of asked for anything better for her she struggled with her tumors but she can rest easy now, thank you it means the world to me, Lauryn xx
Firstly I would like to thank you for your incredible, kind and loving approach to our boys cremation yesterday, it helped ease the pain a little.
I’ve written a small poem, hopefully it’s not too long.
“Proud and Strong You Always Stood
Fearless Against Lifes Strife
Vacuum Cleaners and Cucumbers Were Your Only Enemy
Loving and Loyal,
Your Dad Was Your Whole World
With Kitten Eyes and Purrs Like A Truck,
You Sat With Him
Through Our Lives Toughest Times
You Were There
Counsellor and Confidante,
Friend and Family,
You Were There
Take This Last Journey Bravely,
Know My Dad’s There Waiting,
We’ll See You Again Soon,
Thank you again, so much.
Thank you for the wonderful service you provide. You took great care of Lucas I now have him home on my sideboard.
Thank you again
Thanks so much again for taking such good care of our girl, it was so important to us and it means the world. We are so glad to have been able to sit at the beach and then come back for Nala.
Thanks for being so lovely as well we really appreciate all the kind words. Here is a photograph from our last walk together.
Kirstie and Sean O’Neill
Thank you so much for all your care and compassion towards our beautiful girl Tilly. We are devastated to of lost our best friend who we adored to pieces.
Our girl is now the brightest star in the sky. We will miss her dearly as will her best friends Isla and Bella.
Love Sophie and Family xx
Thanks so much for your help again. Snoop was such a little character and we will miss him a lot.
Here is a photo for you of him.
My wee girl Sally was born on July 27th at 9.30pm from my gorgeous chocolate lab Jenny, she was Jennys only baby girl and the last one born in a small litter of gorgeous chunky pups. She was the smallest out the lot but she made the biggest impact during her time with us. We named her after Sally Fields, the actress who played Mrs Gump in the film Forrest Gump – her brothers are called Forrest, Bubba and Dan! Since Jennys birth was a bit difficult it meant that we had to hand feed the litter for their first night while their mum recovered. Sally always finished her bottle first, she was a greedy wee baby but after every feed she cuddled in straight away and never made a peep until next feed time. I’ll miss her little hungry squeaks and the cute little noises she made when she had to be toileted when her mum wasn’t there. I’ve never known to love something so much after such a short amount of time but she was special. She had a gorgeous dark brown/black coat with a white chin, a white stripe down her chest, white toes and a cute wee pink nose. She was the only puppy that came out with white toes and a pink nose, all the rest were hard to tell apart at first. When the pups were allowed to be with their mum again Sally was always the one to be pushing her brothers out of the way to get to the best of Jennys milk. She liked to cuddle up under Jennys tail to stay warm after feed times and used to squish her face in to hide and sleep, it made her cuddles even more special because she’d snuggle into your arms that little bit tighter than the rest. I think I stayed awake for atleast 4 days in total – while Jenny was going into labour, to deliver the pups, to make sure all the puppies were full up while Jenny was recovering and to reunite them with their mum. I spent a lot of time holding and cuddling Sally just because she was the smallest, she was my angel my only little girl. I’d said to everyone that I wasn’t keeping any of the puppies and that they’d all be finding new homes when they were ready but I had a proper soft spot for Sally and secretly wanted to keep her back to stay with me. Even though she was only a few days old she had her own wee special personality, I’m heartbroken that my beauty didn’t get to see or hear the world and won’t get to experience growing up with her brothers. I will never forget my baby girl, I love her soo much. Her time on this world may have been short but Sally showed me love like nothing else before and I can’t thank her enough for that.
I love you Sally, you’ll always be in my heart and on my mind my beautiful wee girly.
Love you angel, from Mamma Briege xx
Thank you so much for all you done on Saturday, you are such a special animal lover and care so much for our pets last journey. It felt a bit different to when Fluff and Sirus made their last journey, not your fault but covid.
We knew Zak was ill, but I think we all tried to avoid letting Zak go. Looking at pictures now that were taken not too long ago, how much he changed and the cancer took a grip of him. Zak was my shadow wouldn’t go anywhere with out me…..yes…..Even the bathroom. Lee and Sean said if I went out Zak howled till I got in. I haven’t been back into the garden since, Zak would lie by my side. I used to speak to Zak when I felt low.
I want to thank you, I knew Zak would be treated so good in your hands. You are such a special lady……pet angel……Even my youngest Sean was upset this morning. He asked me how long do you feel lost, how long do you feel sad, he dosnt want to look bad being upset for ages. All I could say ……truthfully……there is no grieving limit. I still grieve my cat Pharoe after he was sent over the rainbow bridge in 2005.
Thank you again Rhoda.
Carol ( Anderson )
Hello Rhoda, I just wanted to say thank you soo much for yesterday you made something very difficult that little bit easier. Here is a pic of mia in all her goofy Glory 💜 Thanks again Jodi
Belle(24.05.02 – 19.08.20)
Dear Rhoda – Thank you so very much for giving our beloved Belle a dignified send off – it meant so much to know she was in the hands of someone who really cares.
Huge thanks – Wendy and Iain Lennox
Rhoda, thank you for your kindness and the professional care given today, as we said goodbye to our wee Harry, he was such a special part of our family and always beside me, I will be tripping over him for some time, he was my wee personal ‘trip hazard’ and buddy. Always with us in spirit….such a character. Thank you again from the Bell Family.
Our loving Spike, a massive part of our family, born the 08/05/2009 and passed 11/09/2020. Cannot Thank Rhoda enough for her care and compassion and treating Spike with dignity on his final journey. Run free Spike, until we are together again.
Linda & Keith Millar and family
Thankyou so much for taking care of my beautiful girl on her final trip.
We cannot thank you enough for how beautifully you handled Hazel for us today. We have lost our little furry baby and she has left such a big hole. Having her treated so well has helped significantly.
I have hundreds of photos of her cheeky self so I’ve attached a selection to this email and we would love if you would pick a few for your website.
Hazel was the perfect mix of cheek, mischeif and snuggly-ness. She knew how beautiful she was with her little white socks. Words cannot describe how much she will be missed.
Caroline + Andy
Dear Rhoda, you always make the passing of a furry friend easier to cope with, there is no-one I trust more than you to help my best friends complete their final journey.
Here’s some Photos of Dara in times gone by.
DARA, you came to me at just 2 weeks old, with terrible cat flu, the vets said you would not last 24hrs but you proved them wrong.
You have left a huge void in all our lives, your 9 dog & 2 cat siblings miss you terribly, the boys cant believe you’ve gone, they thought you would live forever, you were a super star.
For 18yrs you were my hope, my joy, my friend, my longest relationship ever.
Now go my friend to pastures new, at rainbow bridge you will be safe, for Bash & Misty have been waiting for many years for you to arrive & finally rejoin the trio.
We will meet again my gorgeous girl
We all love you so very much, forever in our hearts xxxxxx
Was so lovely to meet you today and cannot thank you enough for the wonderful service you gave our Morag.
If more people in the world were like you, it would be a much better place.
Please find attached a photo of our Morag.
Once again, we can’t thank you enough for today.
Leanne and Andy xxx
Thank you so much for taking care of Pete in his final steps at the end. You were so caring and made it easier for us to come to terms with his sudden loss.
We love you Pete although your time with us was short, it was still brilliant. You were always there my wee shadow, you fitted in perfectly with our wee family. We want to say a special thanks to The Edward Foundation for giving us the opportunity to adopt you and give you the amazing life you deserved Pete. We hope you felt safe, happy and comfortable here. You were taken far too soon from us, we will miss you so much every day.
If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.
Lots of Love
Riah, Stevo & Teddy xx
Thanks so much for your amazing service, you made it incredibly special and memorable xx
Thank you so much for your kind caring words tonight, it meant a lot to Mikey and I. It was so kind of you to give up your time in the evening to tend to our needs and I am sure there is no other professional and personal service like yours, and for that I will be eternally grateful.
Neco was our family for almost 18 years and she will be sorely missed.
Lorraine and Mikey Paget
Thank you for send off for lady today here is a picture for your memorial wall. Thanks. Chris/ Julie
ArchieHello Rhoda, Just want to say a big thank you for your care and compassion today. We feel so much better now Archie’s had the send off he deserves, and for being able to take him in at short notice. Kind regards, Susan
ArloHi Rhoda, Please accept my appreciation for your service to Arlo today. You are kind and understanding, we can feel your care of Arlo and us. Thanks again Rhoda. Arlo Cici my most loved one was mystery and she was a miracle too. I met her after she has saved from a terrible accident. We never know where she came from, how old she was, and what terrible thing happened on her, she was mystery. The vet estimated she could never walk again but when she came to my home, she can jump she can walk and dance too. She was a life fighter and a miracle. She was chubby, stole our chicken from kitchen every time we were cooking a big meal. She loves fish, jump on our table every time we have the fish. She was super sticky, requesting for hug and hold all the time. Sleeps on my pillow, in my arm every night. She loved me, run to me every time I back home. Arlo I will always love you and never forget you. You mean so much to me. The time With you was never enough. My happiness having you for these years and I have you traveling to this country together. Really unwilling to say bye to you but I know you are in peace now, no pain but only happiness. Please don’t forget me. Hope we will meet again in any other form… Arlo, love forever. Erica, HY and grandma
Cole (12.08.04 – 04.01.21)Rhoda was extremely kind and sympathetic when I had to say goodbye to my 16 year old Labrador, Cole. She made the whole process of having him put to sleep, cremated, and ashes returned on the same day, with such compassion. I cannot thank her enough, she kept in touch with me from the second I contacted her until the second he was ready to be cremated. She kind of helped me with grieving, and made me realise Cole wasn’t gone forever, he will always be in my heart. If anyone is looking for a cremation for their pet, I can 100% be sure you will be satisfied with Rhoda’s service and her dedication to her role and the kind and gentle manner in which she treats the each pet. If I ever needed this service again, then I would definitely look no further. RIP Cole GBNF XXX Peter & Rachael
