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, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals that had 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. 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 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 Rainbow Bridge together…….

AbbeyandJake2
Abbey (Boxer) & Jake (Dalmatian)

Abbey was adopted from a farm in North Carolina. She was the runt of the litter and was mischievous from the beginning. She managed to destroy most of the house in her first 3 months with us – what a handful! A typical Boxer, she was stubborn, loyal & very loving. Unfortunately, she developed cancer at only 8 years old and it took her quickly. Her spirit lives on in my heart – I still miss her.

Jake was rescued from an abusive owner also in North Carolina. He and his siblings had been beaten and Jake was very timid and had trouble with his bowels all his life. I don’t know what they did to him exactly, but it took years to fully gain his trust. Despite this beginning he was so loving & loyal and would do anything to make us happy. His “sister” Abbey gave him a hard time, but Jake never let it bother him…he was a true blessing. He was always my “boy”.

Abby Foster
Abby Foster
Abby (APRA alumni) was kind and sweet.  She loved being petted and going on walks, but mostly, she loved us. We  are very sad Abby is gone, but that sadness is miniscule in comparison to the love, joy and comfort she gave us.  Abby, we are in your debt. You are forever in our hearts.  Run free, strong and healthy and have fun now, you deserve it. ~ Rob F.

Allie

Allie was rescued in a parking lot at Lake Allatoona, hence her name, Allie.  She lived a long and pampered life and was much loved. ~ Margaret H.
Angel
Angel
Angel was a unique being who fortunately found his companion through life 17 years ago. From teardrops to laughter the relationship that Margaret and Angel shared was a distinct demonstration of unconditional love. His final moments were spent like so many others during his life, curled up on the bed with his "momma" softly purring.
  • For Angel, I miss you SO much Boo!! Love you more than I can express. ~ Margaret L.
Angelina

Her name was Angelina and she came to us via our dear friend Adolfo who found her hungry and homeless three years ago. From the moment I held her in my arms we bonded. Although her time was short we celebrate her life beautifully lived. She will always be in our hearts. We should all to be so blessed to have an Angelina in our lives at one time or another. We miss her terribly.

Angus

It is with great sadness that we were forced to say goodbye to Angus. Poor Angus was suffering mentally, and he had no quality of life. It was advised that the most humane thing we could do for him was to relieve him of his suffering. This just reminds us that not only can physical maladies leave these poor creatures with no quality of life, but mental ailments can cause a dog to suffer just as much, if not more.

Angus passed peacefully with his devoted foster dad by his side. His foster dad has worked very hard to give Angus the best life he could have these past few months. He made sure that Angus always had a warm bed and never had to spend one night here at the shelter. It is comforting to know that Angus is no longer suffering and is running happily through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge.

April-ShiPoo
April
It is with great sadness that we must tell you that April passed away in her sleep. April's poor body did not have the strength to fight the infections that had been challenging her. April was a true gentle soul; she touched the lives of many of the staff and volunteers at APRA. Our only regret was that she was not able to touch the lives of a new family in the same way. Thank you April, you will not be forgotten.

Austin - To the Rainbow Bridge 12-08-11
Austin
From Austin for my special Mommy Lacy ~ Do not cry for me. I have lived each day like it was my first – I never knew there would be a last. From the day my you brought me home, I knew I was in a good place. I have played, scampered about and chased and laughed. I have eaten bad, smelly things and savored yummy treats. I have traveled far and wide with you, enjoying the beach and doing a crazy dance whenever presented with the opportunity, doing my ‘Austin face’ when I think there might be a threat nearby, panting and panting and panting on long car drives with my ‘shrimp shell’ breath – always being with you through thick and thin, throughout your life and mine. If I have ever been sad, it has never been for me, only for you when you have been hurting or are low. I am the happiest of creatures – the one and only Schnoodle of yours forever. Do not cry for me. But if you do, I am always there. For I know one thing – I am first in your heart, which is why I always sleep the utter peace of always being with you.
  • Austin - You have such a beautiful presence! Gigi G.

Babe

Babe was a darling seven year old Miniature Poodle. Shortly after she came to us, Babe developed an issue with her left eye. She went to a specialist and was diagnosed with a detached lens in her left eye.  Babe was in pain, so the eye had to be removed to relieve her pain and discomfort. Unfortunately, the surgery that was in her best interest was not successful and Babe passed away under anesthesia. She will be greatly missed, most especially by her loving foster mom who devoted so much time and attention to her.

I said good-bye to Bailey last Thursday. She was doing great but on Tuesday I could tell she needed me to let her go. She was a wonderful companion and I am going to miss her a long time. My friend Leesia Teh created a slideshow of her for me that can be viewed at Leesia Teh's website. Leesia also did a memorial for her on Leesia Teh's blog.

Bandit
Bandit
I know my sweet little Bandit waits patiently for me at Rainbow Bridge.  In his 13 years he was a constant source of comfort and joy.  He was laid back, loving and ever so gentle....not your typical doxie by any means.  He loved other dogs, but happily let the alphas lead.  He was a quiet spirit, who gently inserted himself into the lives of those he met....asking only to be included, and wanting to receive the occasional tidbit or pat on the head. He wanted nothing more than to please those he loved, and he did that so beautifully by just being his sweet, sweet self.  We called him Bandit, saying he would steal your heart...and that he did.  The house and my life feel so empty without him, and I am comforted in knowing he is restored to vigor and waits patiently for those who follow.
Love,
Anita O.

Bean
We are very sad to report that Bean has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Although we knew that she had a wealth of issues with her nasal passages and her breathing, what we did not know was that she also suffered from intestinal issues as well. Following Bean's most recent procedure, she stopped eating and spent this entire week in ICU. Bean was not able to recover from all of her ailments. We will all miss this beautiful dog. We are comforted only by the fact that she is no longer suffering.

We would like to thank Bean's Guardian Angel: Frederick A. of Roswell, GA

We also want to express our gratitude to all of Bean's sponsors for their love and support:

Beatrice, affectionately known as "Bea" was a gentle gal who brought peace and calm to her family. She loved to travel and got excited to take trips. She was a part of her family's household for many many years and is greatly missed!
Bella

After a week of cage rest it was obvious that Bella was not getting any better, and was in fact rapidly deteriorating. We took her took her to see an orthopedic specialist who confirmed that she had an torn ACL and had also broken a vertebrae. This was devastating news for all of us. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to correct this injury and upon the advice of the vet, we decided to have Bella humanely euthanized so she would no longer have to be in pain. We will all miss her dearly but are comforted to know she is no longer hurting and can run free like all puppies should be able to do.

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our sweet, beautiful Bella.  She gave so much love and comfort to her parents, Lisa and David, and her sister, Priya.  She was taken too early, but her sweet nature and "quacking" meow will forever be with us.  We know you are sleeping on a warm lap and purring loudly.  Rest in peace Ducky! ~ Thomas N.

Bella (sister to Boo and Luna)
Bella, my beautiful love, my joy, my companion, my heart. You taught me the true meaning of unconditional love, gave new understanding  to what loyalty truly is and brought comfort during difficulty with your close proximity and sweet kisses. You endlessly astonished me with your intelligence. You spoke skillfully to me through your soulful brown eyes. You brought much laughter and thousands of smiles with your antics and bigger-than-life, diva personality. I am so thankful that God entrusted you with me during the 9+ years of your 14 year earthly journey- I only wish our time together had been much longer.  I shall always be grateful to Judy Price and APRA for recognizing how special you were, rescuing you from animal control and for allowing me the privilege and honor of being your mom. I love you so very, very much and will see you again, my sweet girl, at Heaven’s gate.  ~ Your adoring Mom,  Laura

Belle

On Saturday, September 7, 2008 our sweet Miss Belle crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. We are all very shocked and saddened by her passing. It appears that her small little body was overcome with some unforeseen illness. On Friday evening she appeared slightly weak; however, she had not shown any overt signs of illness. By Saturday morning she had passed quietly in her sleep. Belle was such a dear kitten. We were all in love with her fabulous white whiskers and eyebrows and we will always remember her quirky, fun loving personality. All who knew her will certainly miss our little southern Belle.

Berkley
It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I say goodbye to my beautiful, sweet Berkley.  In the six short years that you were with me, you showed me the true meaning of unconditional love and companionship.  I will always cherish the wonderful memories and our time together.  You brought so much love and joy to my life, and I will miss you every day.
  • For Berkley ~ What a sweet girl you were, Berkley, with your soft little velvet ears. Greeting me was always special and you would always wait patiently for a pet. Berks, you were just the best and will be missed. ~ Susan G.

Bill
Bill
Bill was a wonderful cat. We adopted him from Atlanta Pet Rescue in 2003. He loved to jump on the counter, be with his family, and gave great head-butts. Bill was a beautiful Maine Coon with a shiny brown and black coat. He was especially loved by his daddy who was his best friend. He is dearly missed every day by Brad, Debbie, Ari, Levi, and Al.
Bird

The house is awfully silent without his deafening laughing call. “Bird” was a rescue, a mental cripple in a tiny cage who didn’t know how to fly. I didn’t want him but he became a friend. Living with him was a true experience and he taught me much about bird intellect. Living and flying entirely free in the house at all times he was endlessly inquisitive and ready to investigate/destroy. Bird showed me that old Rolex watches break if you throw them on the floor, emptying the pot of pennies is more fun than picking them up and waking up to the classic call of the Australian outback is the best – at 4 a.m. He made people laugh. He also taught 30 APR foster dogs that you don’t mess with a kookaburra! Bird’s death was accidental, at play with his best friend Aggie. Five days on and Aggie’s still looking for him and I’m only just realizing how unique he was. He was a lifetime experience.

Biscuit and Logan
Biscuit & Logan
I cherish the time spent with both my babies. Biscuit was a beautiful gentle old soul. Even as a puppy she displayed a humanness and regal elegance about her. Logan, on the other hand, was my goofy dog, the very cute, lovable annoying little brother. If Biscuit was getting attention, Logan would gently take my arm in his mouth and move it, as if to say “me please.” Biscuit took it all in stride. She loved to look out the window from her favorite perch, relax on the deck, chew on a bone or play with her toys. Logan had a wanderlust, and could easily scale a 6-foot fence. He was also my jogging buddy, and would not allow me to leave him behind. After undergoing chemo for 4 months, Biscuit lost her fight against cancer in April 2011 at the age of 13. Logan got sick in May 2011 with a horrible immune system disease and I lost him in August 2011 at the age of 10. Both were very sweet wonderful animals, and I miss my "little girl" and my "little man" terribly.

Bonnie

Dear Sweet Bonnie crossed over the Rainbow bridge today. Her suffering was just too great to bear as she was no longer able to breath. Her lungs finally gave way to the severity of her condition. We are always saddened by the loss of a beloved pet; however, when human neglect is responsible for the illness, it seems that much harder. "Dear Bonnie, have a bone for your friends at APR and be at peace on the other side of the rainbow bridge. We will miss you. "

It is with heavy hearts that we announce Brazil crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning peacefully, surrounded by a lot of love. While we did not get the chance to spend much time with him, he was certainly a favorite among the staff and volunteers.

Buddy

Just simply the most incredible dalmation ever! He is so sorely missed.

~ for Billy R. from Anna R.
Buddy

Buddy was a very special cat - and I really miss him. He would lay down next to me while I read at night, and he loved white popcorn pieces. From when he was a kitten until he was about five he would get sick with a high fever once a year for no known reason. He was very shy to everyone but me. He lived here with me and his litter mate McClain, a cat named Tess, and a dog named Cooper. He had just turned 14, and had a heart arrhythmia. He passed away at home, which was really the best for him as he was very nervous at the vet.

Callie

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to little Callie. A couple of weeks ago, the vets found a spot on her lung that they suspected might be cancerous. Despite all of the care and precaution taken with her condition, the spot spread quickly and there was nothing else that could be done to save Callie's life. It was a great pleasure to be able to spend what short amount of time we had with her. She was a loving and wonderful pooch who was adored by everyone, especially her foster mom. We feel better knowing that she is happily running free from sickness in the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge.

Chance
Chance

Chance was a rescue dog whom we adopted when he was ten years old.  He had numerous physical and psychological problems when we rescued him, but there he was with his big furry body, hairs that stuck out in a strange way from his ears, and his giant paws (also with hairs sticking out from toes) lumbering along.   He was large with a scarred face and chewed ears - due to years of abuse and maltreatment.  But there was something endearing and vulnerable about this big guy, and this continued until his death on July 30, 2012.    I sometimes wonder about those who do not like dogs nor want them in their lives.  Perhaps they have never had them in their growing-up years; perhaps they have learned to be afraid; or perhaps they have never really looked at a dog in the eyes.  One thing I know for sure is that they never have had the privilege of knowing our boy Chance and his big, furry heart.  It is this heart that touched mine in a way like no other.  His spirit will forever remain in my heart. ~ Patti

Chief

Chief (1992- 2009) Chief was one of those “Best Dog in the World” kind of dogs. True, he had his fair share of youthful bad-boy experiences (like running off with a pack of coyotes). What made him so special was his ability to put people and other dogs at ease. Yes, even those coyotes decided he was OK. Dogs like Chief are the reason people love dogs. Thank you Chief for 16 years of loving companionship. We are glad you made it to all the way to Wales with us. Every minute with you was a gift.

Cricket jumped in my lap the first time I ever went into their house; she was starved for attention. Our relationship started by my keeping her when the family went on vacations. After their first child, they told me finances were tight and they could not afford Cricket. I started caring for her with fancy haircuts and shots in February of 2005. In August of 2005, my neighbors said that they were giving Cricket away. I was their first choice. So, I became her mama officially in August of 2005. I never had a dog that let me clean her teeth, paint her toenails white to match mine and played with another dog. Her best canine friend was a mix named Biscuit. Biscuit is lost without his little fancy girl. I know my little wooly lamb will be waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. Our family misses her so much! Our hearts are broken. ~Susan

Cutie Pie

August 18, 2001 (adoption day)- February 23, 2008 I adopted you from Atlanta Pet Rescue on August 18, 2001, to be a companion to my sweet boy, Poncho. You were like a mother to him. I will miss your sweet smile, urgent bark, and everything about you. You were the best mama ever. I know you will take great care of Scruffy, Lillian and Poncho. I love you!

Daisy
Daisy was rescued by Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption along with her six puppies.  Her puppies were adopted out and I fostered her.  That was my first experience of being a "foster failure" in the true sense of the word.  I was never able to find the "perfect adopter"; the fact was that I fell in love with her from the start and just didn't want to let her go.   She was gentle and loving  and could also could be very stubborn  & strong willed.  Through it all, she knew that she was loved and would never be mistreated again.  She was a wonderful companion and, along with Charlee, Senji, Pippi and Lil'Bit, formed my "Pack of 5".  Daisy, go to Charlee & Senji now.  Fly on wings of light and love and know that you will be very missed but not alone across the Rainbow Bridge.~Gigi

Daisy Edmondson Ford will always be remembered and never forgotten by everyone who met her.  She lived 14 years with  her parents Amy and Stewart Ford.  Daisy was a demure, lovely girl who will be sorely missed.  Peace to her and her family. ~ Jill E-B.

Daphne
Daphne was the sweetest little girl.  She loved to be held, and would put her head under my chin and sigh.  She was smart and gentle, with personality galore and soul searching eyes. She was a ragamuffin, but quite prissy, and she overcame her rough beginnings to live a charmed life.  Everyone loved little Daphne, but none more than her mommy. ~ Sharon S.
Davis

Delaney

Delaney's blood work results today confirmed that she was already in organ failure. There simply was nothing that her doctors or anyone could do to save her. All we were able to do was relieve her suffering. It breaks our hearts to say goodbye yet again to one of our helpless fur babies.

Dorren

It is with tremendous sadness that we must report that Dorren has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. After multiple surgeries and weeks of rest, Dorren's body was not able to accommodate the loss of her front leg. Her dislocated hip was not able to stay in the socket and there was nothing that could be done. We want to extend our unending gratitude to Dr. Whittle and the entire staff at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic for their commitment to working with dogs like Dorren and for their tireless efforts to save them. Dorren was a loving, one of a kind dog that touched the hearts of everyone she came in contact with. Her love of life and gentle spirit will live within each of us and we are happy to have had the opportunity to provide her with the love and attention she so deserved. We will miss her very much! Many thanks to all who have followed her story and contributed to her care.

Drey

Drey and I spent the past 14 years and 7 months of our lives together. He was a wonderful companion and the best roommate I could ask for. He enjoyed taking long walks through the neighborhood and barking at all of the bigger dogs. He also loved eating raw hide bones and stealing socks and leaving them in his hiding place under the bed. What I miss most about him is the greeting I would receive when I got home. His tail was always wagging a mile a minute and I knew he was smiling inside and out. I like to think he is in a happier place running around barking at all of the big dogs with an endless supply of rawhide bones and unmatched socks. He will be a part of my life forever!

Duncan

We took Duncan to Dr. Whittle at Paces Ferry Veterinary Hospital for an evaluation and to determine his prognosis for medical treatment to alleviate his pain and restore his mobility. Sadly, the news was not good.After reviewing Duncan's X-rays and and examining Duncan, Dr. Whittle concluded that Duncan had so many problems with his knees and hips that he would not regain use of his rear legs and live a normal life.

As you might expect, we had to make the sad, sad decision to put Duncan out of his misery and end his pain and suffering permanently. He was a sweet pooch who should have had a better life, but puppy mill dogs often do not have good genetic backgrounds, and Duncan is a prime example of how an adorable puppy at the pet store ends up.

Elsie

For the last two weeks we have struggled to save Elsie. She has not had much of an appetite, she has been very lethargic and seemed to be in a great deal of pain. Elsie was suffering from a rare digestive disorder or possibly an internal injury associated with her broken pelvis. Her digestive problem and the traumatic injury causing her broken pelvis, coupled with the ravages of heartworm disease have been too much for her little body to handle. We are comforted to know that her foster families gave her love, happiness and a comfortable home during her time with us. We are especially grateful for the generous sponsorships and support from all who have followed Elsie's story. She was a sweet sweet soul. We will miss her dearly.

Emmy Louise
I adopted Emmy from APRA in April, 2004. She was rejected by her mother, probably because she had internal birth defects. But from the moment I saw her I knew she was my girl. She went with me everywhere, and loved my farm in Middle GA. Her 10th birthday was coming on Feb. 24th 2014, but, alas, she passed away on Feb. 12th.  My sweet darling love. ~ Joan L.
Ester

It is with great sadness that we were forced to say goodbye to Ester early this morning. Ester passed peacefully after complications with her spay surgery. It is always so difficult to not be able to see a sweet soul like Ester find a forever home. But we do know she felt the love of the APR staff and volunteers while we were lucky enough to spend time with her, even if only for a short while. It helps to know that Ester is running happily through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge.

Farley Barfield
In memory of Farley Barfield, July 7, 2003 – November 5, 2014. We adopted Farley from the Atlanta Pet Rescue Mission in 2006. We were at our home in FL and had been looking for a Yorkie. We found him on line and called to find out hours. We made a dashing drive to Atlanta from New Port Richey, FL only to find that he had been adopted a couple of hours before we arrived. Disappointed, we left name and phone numbers of our GA place. On Tuesday, the Shelter called to see if we still wanted Farley. The family had returned him!. He was meant for us! Farley became a part of our family. He traveled with us wherever we went. If you didn’t want Farley, you didn’t want us! He loved his Mommy so very much and was very protective of her. He had his own dentist, his own groomer and allowed us to sleep on what became his bed! During his life he had a cataract removed from one of his eyes. He was to full of life to be blind, so we found Dr.Tracey King in Marietta who did the surgery. As he got older his trachea narrowed and collapsed about a year and a half ago. We rushed him over to the GA Vet Clinic and Dr. Derek Duvall put a stent in his trachea. Another lease on life for us all to enjoy each other. We also appreciate the Vet Clinic in Marietta for their support. Farley visited many places during his life, from the beach to the Mountains. He enjoyed riding in the car. His bio told us he was a non barker! Did he have them fooled! He barked at everything. He chased lizards in FL and squirrels in GA. He was a joy! He passed away from cardiac arrest. He passed peacefully to that special place. Farley’s tribute is at www.petsinpeace.net. Farley was cremated and his remains returned to us in a beautiful wood box, with a paw print and hair lock. To the folks at the Atlanta Pet Rescue Mission we are thankful for what you do.

Fiona
Fiona was adopted from APRA in June 2010. She was a breeder surrender, timid and afraid of everything. Over time, she learned to play and enjoy life. She was much loved and very spoiled with soft beds, a stroller, lots of toys and clothes to satisfy her inner diva. She brought us much joy and will be very much missed. We love you, sweet girl!

Fluffy, my little boy and best friend, died Feb. 26th, 2008. He gave almost 14 years of unconditional love and was a most precious blessing. He was by my side through all the ups and downs and had the magic to make me smile, always. We will miss our little baby very much but will cherish many wonderful memories for the rest of our lives.

Flynn
I want to thank Atlanta Pet Rescue for the almost 3 years I had with Flynn. I learned so much from him. He had suffered through years of abuse and neglect but he never gave up hope and he never once complained. Everyday he was joyful and loving and never failed to make me laugh out loud. Such a little comic. My heart is broken over Flynn's loss, but as I told him yesterday when I said it was OK to go, now his body is whole again and he is happy. I loved him with all my heart and so did Maesey. My home is empty today without him. Thank you APR for all you do. ~Kathy V.

Fozzie
We are very sad to report that little Fozzie has passed over the Rainbow Bridge. This sweet boy's vision and health progressively worsened in only a matter of days.  There was no other choice but to help end his pain.  He is now frolicking in the fields with his fellow poodle friends.
  • You were such a sweet, sweet boy. We all fell in love with you during your weekend stay with us. ~ Laura, Boo and Luna

Fozzy

It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to little Fozzy. Fozzy left us last night after having complications with heartworm disease. It is extremely heartwrenching to know that Fozzy lost his life to something that is easily preventable. A single dose of heartworm prevention each month is all it takes to prevent this deadly disease. Heartworms are spread from dog to dog by mosquitoes, and it only takes one bite to become infected with the disease. Please consult your vet and give your dog monthly heartworm prevention. It will save their life.

Frances
Frances Anne
Frances, our sweet Boxer girl:  Thank you for the wiggles, walks, snuggles, laughs, and love. You brought us so much joy. We will always miss and love you. ~ Your Daniel and your Cynthia
  • Frances, we miss you every day. Cyn & Dan
Francie
Francie was named for Mary Frances Nolan, the main character in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (my favorite book). We met Francie 12 years ago at a shopping mall pet adoption event. When I learned we shared the same birthday, she was our destiny. Francie was a very sensitive dog – she seemed able to read a person’s mood and would comfort you when you were sad. For many years, Francie was a wonderful playmate to our other dogs. She played “keep-away” with our St. Bernard, who had trouble keeping up with Francie. When we adopted a Westie, Francie would chase her all over the yard and bowl her over when she caught up with her. Her sister Emmie (an APR alum) loved playing the submissive role to Francie, who was always gentle with her. And our latest addition (another Westie) copied Francie’s mannerisms – a real case of hero worship. Francie loved the beach and vacationed there every summer. At first sun, she would wake us for her walk to the fishing pier. The pier employees would toss her treats, while her siblings dug for crabs in the sand. Francie’s nickname was “The Supervisor”, while her sisters were “Digger” and “Digger Jr.” Those were golden days. Our time together seems so short. Francie taught us how to live. She was noble, sensitive, and had class. We miss her – and always will. She can never be replaced in our hearts, and will live forever in our memories. ~Your Mom, Dad, and Sisters

Freddy
This story goes like this: I lost my love, Freddy...worst pain ever!! Then we took a chance on Scooby. He has those bedroom eyes...just captivating. He was unhappy not having a Forever home so he took a chance on us. We now live happily ever after. The end.
Galen

Galen was a fun-loving dog who loved walks and car trips with Susan and Tom. A big couch potato, Galen snuggled with Susan and kept Tom company in his home office. He was friendly with Tom’s cats and to the other family dogs — Lassie and Lucky. ~ Anne
Georgia

Georgia was one of the most beautiful dogs - inside and out - that I have ever known. Heaven will be a better place now that she is there. Everyone who knew her will miss her kiss-nips, her obsessive love of babies, and her contagious contentment in a warm lap. I never knew a dog who loved to snuggle more. I know Gussy & Rembert will take good care of you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, Georgia. We love you.

Ginger
I adopted Ginger, or Natalie, from APR in March 2004. I went to APR to donate things from my elderly dog who had just died. I wasn't in the mood for another dog, but Ginger chose me. She has been the perfect dog and so loving to my 7 grandchildren who came into her life these past 6 years. She left this life a week ago-an unforgettable dog! ~ Phyllis B.

Gizmo

The twelve and a half years we had went by so fast. It’s hard when I go home and you're not there to greet me. I can’t believe you’re gone. One of the hardest things I had to do was to let you go. I’m so sorry and I will truly miss you. My heart is broken but my love for you will go on. I know you will greet me when it is my time to go. Until that day, I love you little one and always will.

~ Your mother, Penny T.

You have been gone for a year today and time does not make it better. My heart hurts so badly for you. Over the year I have cried enough tears for you to fill a ocean. I will always love you!!!

I miss holding you. Love U My Baby Boy

Grace
Grace spent 11 years on this earth and brought joy to every single person she met. She was lucky enough to go to work with her Mom most every day, and was fortunate enough to be the office greeter! She was such a gentle, loyal and sweet soul that will certainly be missed by everyone who knew her. She had many dog friends, but she truly loved the company of her humans. We hope you are enjoying endless treats and a lot of playtime with other buddies who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We will think of you often!

Gunter

It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to little Gunter. Gunter came to us from an outlying animal control facility. However, much like a lot of puppies who end up there, Gunter's immune system was just too weak to deal with the harsh environment. In the couple of days that we at APR had the pleasure of knowing Gunter, he won our hearts with his friendly and playful nature. He was a wonderful boy who will be greatly missed.

Hadley

Atlanta Pet Rescue lost Hadley to a birth defect that prevented her from digesting her food. We had hoped that she simply needed some TLC to get her back to health but unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done for her. This sweet little soul will be missed by many.

Hampton

We are sad to report that baby Hampton succumbed to a fatal puppy disease on 8/27/09. This is especially sad, because he could have been protected by inexpensive vaccinations. His gentle soul will be remembered by all who met him. He did not deserve to die so young.

Sweet Hannah will be missed by family & friends.

Harley
Harley Davidson Lucky Dog
Harley, you were fostered by me, adopted and returned a week later to APR. I knew then that you were meant for me. We only had 4 short years together, but given your heart condition that usually takes dogs by the age of 3, I considered every day of our time a true miracle.  Those who know me said it was because of the care I gave you that you lived to be 8. But regardless, I’m so grateful for every day you were in my life. You were the best boy ever. I know I named you Harley Davidson Lucky Dog, but it was me who was lucky. Thank you for rescuing ME. I’ll see you again when I’m in heaven. Love, me (Stephanie H.)  
Herbie

We are saddened once again to say goodbye to a precious kitty who did not have the chance at happiness he so deserved. Herbie succumbed to having a severe virus that is easily preventable with a simple vaccine. Though he was vaccinated upon arrival at APR, it was much too late. We mourn another preventable loss of precious life. We will miss you Herbie.

Hoggie

After a long hard battle with heartworms and complications related to treatment, Hoggie has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. His tiny body was just not strong enough to handle the ravages of this terrible disease. We are all very sad to lose this little guy but are comforted to know that he is no longer suffering. Hoggie was a darling dog and his joyful spirit will be missed by all.

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and occasionally in the right side of the heart of dogs, cats and other species of mammals. Dogs and cats of any age or breed are susceptible to infection. Heartworm preventatives are extremely effective and when administered properly on a timely schedule, heartworm infection can be prevented!

Holly brought many smiles as she wheeled around the neighborhood in her Radio Flyer, because her heart was too weak to go very far on her own.

Sadly, we lost Hugo. He came to us sick and his little body could not handle the stress. Hi doctor tried valiantly to keep him alive, but his immune system just wasn't strong enough.

Imani

It is with great sadness that we were forced to say goodbye to Imani. She had been experiencing weight loss and was under the watchful eye of the wonderful staff 24 hours a day at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic for the past several weeks. They worked tirelessly running tests to try and figure out what was causing the unexplained weight loss. However, nature took over and Imani passed peacefully in her sleep last night. Imani had been plagued with several medical problems since she arrived at APR, so it is comforting to know that she is no longer in pain. She will be greatly missed by all the staff and volunteers here at APR.
Imani is now running happily through the meadows across the Rainbow Bridge.

To my dear sweet brother, you gave Joey the best last few years of his life. The little Prince couldn't have asked for a more loving owner or family. I'll never forget our sweet "Joey Macaroon"!
Sweet Prince found his home and a loving rescue in Jimmy. Joey had the best few years of his life with Jimmy and couldn't have asked for a better owner.

India

India was born August 11, 1989 in Centerville, Iowa.

My parents told me I could get a dog since I was so far from home (Atlanta) at Univ. of Iowa. So, she was by my side since I was a freshman in college and she was 6 weeks old.

She grew up near campus, swimming every day in the Iowa River, even if I didn’t want her to. She became a mascot of sorts for the U of I sculling team. She enjoyed frisbee, golf, soccer, chasing squirrels, and a good beer now and again.

She made the 1000 mile move to Atlanta in 1997, with her head out the window of a U-Haul truck and an optimistic grin on her face.

After moving to Atlanta, she made frequent trips to the Peachtree Hills duck pond, Piedmont Park, and enjoyed swimming in the Flint River at her grandparent’s farm in South Georgia.

She made quick friends of everyone she met and in 2000 when we had a scare with poison, I was told that she had more visitors than any dog that Pets are People, Too had ever seen...EVER. India was also full of mischief, and up until her very last day of life, made time to get into the garbage. I will miss stepping over her every time I get out of the shower, or tripping over her in the dark of night, but most of all her cheery disposition that she kept, even when she was suffering at the end.

She was an inspiration.

Jack was a special guy.  His dad, Tom, adopted him many years ago in Southern California. Jack's eye had been removed before Tom adopted him, so no one knew what happened there.

Jennie
Jennie
On the evening of Thursday, February 28 we said our last good-byes, gave our last kisses and strokes, and let our sweet Jennie go.  Surrounded in love with three dear friends and my parents – without whom I could not have managed to make that decision on my own –  my father and I rested with her on the floor of Gotham Veterinary for hours and held her little body close until her last breath. She knew she was loved – always – and up until the very end. Her morning walk that Thursday along Riverside Drive was typical – she was her usual bundle of sheer joy and big personality, greeting neighbors, looking up to me with her big brown eyes for treats, happy to be in her favorite place in the world: side-by-side with her mama. We were doing what we loved so much, taking the time to slow down and amble through our beloved Upper West Side neighborhood. It was our time, and we cherished our strolls. Over the years Jennie and I would walk hundreds of city blocks, in the freezing winters and in the heat of the summers. She loved Manhattan, and she also always loved to hop into her bag and head out to explore fields afar: especially Long Island, NY, NJ and CT, and before that Atlanta and the Southeast. City, suburbs, hiking, boating, exploring – Jennie was up for anything, always. On her noon walk last Thursday Jennie collapsed and we learned that afternoon that she had developed an incurable mass that began hemorrhaging. We watched her rapidly decline before our eyes. There was no other choice but to let her sweet heart lay to rest. She was never far from me, always at my heels, and my life was rich because of her. Adopting Jennie was a very thoughtful and intentional decision – a reason to rush home, a reason to connect with others. She provided structure to my life and responsibility to meet her needs. It was not always easy, but it was always in love. Through Jennie many new friends’ doors opened for me, and the untold numbers of conversations grew throughout the years with admiring New Yorkers who engaged with us up and down each block, sitting in our favorite outdoor cafes, in Central Park and Riverside Park and all over the entire island of Manhattan. A Hurricane Katrina refugee and survivor, I always teasingly thought of Jennie as a “bad New Yorker” for she never had a walk that I can recall in which she didn’t attempt to engage others by making direct eye contact. Frequently called “Benji” by random people on the street, she had that classic terrier look: scruffy face, pumpkin nose, caramel and black silky fur, and of course her commanding and charming brown eyes. I’ve already spoken with so many of you who have joined with me in mourning, and I find comfort in your words. On Sunday I heard something in particular that has resonated with me: “Lead with love, not with loss” and I know that’s what Jennie would want for all of us. For nearly eight years I cherished, loved and adored Jennie. I miss her terribly and I am so thankful to have shared my life with her. In Jennie’s love and spirit ~ Christine

Jeremy

On Thursday, May 8th, Jeremy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.
It is with great sadness that we are forced to say goodbye to this dear little dog. Jeremy's life of neglect had left his body unable to recover from the ravages of malnutrition and mange. Jeremy appeared to be healing from the terrible skin infection associated with the mange, however, he recently became very unsteady on his feet and quickly took a turn for the worst.
Our sweet little Jeremy will be greatly missed by all.

Jessie
Jessie
Jessie and I spent 16 years together, and for many of those years, it was only the two of us.  We adopted Heidi when Jessie was 8.  She made a great surrogate mom & trained Heidi well. Since Jessie passed, we rescued and found homes for 10 pups, keeping one, of course.  We hope to provide love to Abby just like Jessie did to us.  I miss her. ~ Nanette S.
Kalinka

Kalinka came to us from a German breeder in 2001. The breeder said she was a handful and she easily lived up to her reputation! Kalinka ruled the roost. She was a beautiful girl who quickly stole our hearts and had all of us wrapped around her little paw.

Kalinka succumbed to lymphoma in July 2009. We loved her so much. The memories she gave us will remain with us forever. We know that today Kalinka is still getting Spyro, our beloved male Cesky, to do her bidding while she waits for us on the Rainbow Bridge.
We miss you, Bella!

Kitty Carlisle

Kitty Carlisle was born sometime in June, 2006. She died unexpectedly in her home on June 8, 2008. Kitty Carlisle had had a rocky start in life and endured a constant upper respiratory condition. Although she received excellent medical care, she obviously coped with more troubles than we knew. She lived with us for just 15 months, and in that short time she managed to wreak havoc in her home. But there wasn’t a day we didn’t thank God she had come our way.

Kitty Carlisle loved Coffee Nips, batting them around like little hockey pucks. She could fly through the air and land perfectly on precariously high perches. She made it her mission to relieve tables, counters, bookcases, and desks of anything moveable. She played with pens, pencils, the computer mouse, small plastic bottles, and fluffy balls. She was the only cat I’ve ever known whose fur looked worse after she groomed it. She’d end up with tufts of hair flicked up all over her body. It was her spiked “do.” And when she groomed her best friend Eddie, he was spiked, too.

Kitty Carlisle was a joyful, affectionate little creature, and we just loved her dearly. We miss her as much as we loved her, and we are so grateful she embellished our lives and redecorated our home.

Lady

June – August 2006
Just three months old, Lady, a pit bull mix, suffered an untimely death in a crime that the Humane Society of the U.S. called “one of the most egregious, high-profile cases of animal cruelty in Georgia history”. The defendants were each sentenced to 10 years in prison for Lady’s death. Though Lady was on Earth just a brief time, she rallied animal lovers around the world to take a stand against cruelty to animals. Lady, your spirit lives on, and you will never be forgotten.

Leaf

Memories of Leaf, Kevin Munoz's little girl
Kevin always had a dog in the house growing up, but this is the first dog that was his. Though I never met Leaf, I know she was a very special girl.
She died suddenly due to a heartworm vaccine (an alternative to the monthly heartworm pill, which has now been taken off the market).
She's now in a place where no shadows fall, and I know she's pleased with all the flowers we leave for her on earth.

~Mandy Munoz, Kevin's wife

Leaf was one of the most (if not THE most) affectionate dogs I've ever known. And her extremely soft, fluffy coat of curly gray hair made her very easy to cuddle, which she loved to do. She was extremely well-behaved and patient with children and other dogs.
To this day I often think about Leaf, my first grand-dog, and I still miss her very much.

Libby

Libby gave us several wonderful years and she will be missed terribly, especially by her buddy, Tater. She had to have her own chair at the table and was always waiting at the door when we came home with big meows and a tumble and roll so that we could scratch her belly. She led a very healthy and normal life for many years, although her heart murmur shortened it, eventually causing heart failure. She passed away on 10/15/07. We will miss her funny little noises and Tater will miss their snuggle and play time. Miss Libby was loved by all and with us through thick and thin. We shall miss you, sweet girl.

Lido

Lido was my best buddy and constant companion. When I needed comforting, he was there. When it was bedtime, he propped his nose on the edge of the bed to say goodnight. He liked to run in his sleep - I think that was the only time in which he could catch a squirrel. He could entertain himself for a long period of time with an almost-empty jar of peanut butter, his favorite food. He loved to hop in the car for a ride, often going along on my weekend “donut run.” He taught me so much about unconditional love. Words cannot express how special he was or how much he was loved. He will be greatly missed.

(August 15, 1999 - November 5, 2007)
I will miss everything about you including: watching you jump on top of the refrigerator to eat your supper; seeing you growl, hiss and spit at people you didn't like; watching you "rock out" while I played my accordion; and playing "kitty racquetball" with you on the stairs. You lived life on your terms and even if people didn't love you for it, they respected you. I know Mama Scruff and Papa Bill will keep you out of trouble in heaven.

Lovebug

We are sad to report that little Lovebug was born with a congenital defect that prevented her from getting the nutrition she needed to grow and thrive. No matter how much food this sweet kitten ate she couldn't gain weight. Blood work done at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic confirmed that Lovebug was not going to survive kittenhood. We wish to thank all the people who looked after her and all the people who wanted to adopt her. She had found a place in our hearts.

Lucky
On December 22, our beloved Lucky crossed over the  Rainbow Bridge.  For almost 11 years, Lucky was a part of our family and made us smile every day - and we miss him greatly. He definitely made a difference in our lives and brought such joy to everyone who knew him. It is our goal to continue honoring his memory by helping homeless pets, like he once was, get a second chance at life. ~ Tanya & Toby T.    
Lucky Dog
Lucky Dog
Lucky Dog was a very special pooch. Found wandering, hungry and homeless, he crossed his owner's path and she named him "Lucky Dog" because she vowed she would bring him back from the junkyard where he was found. That was in 1995 in Narita, Japan. Lucky made the long journey in the cargohold of a 747, thirteen hours to Chicago, a quick pass through customs and immigration, and then onto another plane to Atlanta. He first set eyes on Atlanta in February, 1995, and was eager to learn a new language and a new culture. In his new home, he ate the sofa, the wooden baseboards and managed to swallow a threaded needle and get it stuck in the back on his tongue. He stopped eating after that and ended up in the emergency clinic where an incredulous veterinarian extracted the needle, still threaded, from his throat. Lucky survived that and also treatment for heartworms, twice, during his first six months in the U.S. We never knew exactly what breed he was as the dogs in Japan are largely imported from abroad and often are not the typical breeds we see in the U.S. He had a wonderful bushy tail and a thick ruffle of fur around his neck and plumes of long hair that cascaded over the tops of his ears. We think he may have been a Finnish Spitz or something similar. Lucky was loved dearly. In the end he became deaf and mostly blind. Then his mental functions slipped away until he didn't know where he was or who we were. He shuffled around aimlessly and was sometimes unable to stand without wobbling. Lucky Dog has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, can see and hear clearly now and runs and chases leaves and birds as he once did. He will be greatly missed here but the many fond memories of his time with us will be cherished forever. ~Judy Price & Detmar Straub

We are sad to report that little Lucy succumbed to a malady that could so easily have been prevented but which was unfortunately not caught in time prior to her entering our program.
She fought to the end and enjoyed her newfound freedom, albeit shortlived, while she could. She most definitely found a place in our hearts and while just a little tyke, she had a huge spirit. Love is not measured in quantity but in quality! Lucy, you were very loved beyond the time you had with us!!!

Maggie
Maggie better known as the " Indonesian Fighting Fish dog" was adopted from APR 13 years ago. In those years she has filled our lives with love and laughs. She never missed a boat trip especially when she was able to fish and look for Dolphins. Everyone she met knew what an extraordinary friend she was. Maggie you will always be in our hearts.

Mara

Mara was a loving and loyal companion for many years. Whether chasing a stick in the stream or a ball in the backyard, playing matchmaker, hiking the N. Georgia trails with Mom, hanging out with the Bailey Dog, or checking out the newest addition to the family, Mara was a delight. She will be greatly missed by the Bauer family and her friends.

Max
On Sunday evening, Max crossed over the Rainbow bridge in the arms of his foster Mom. On Friday evening, he eagerly went to his foster home for some much needed R & R.  We suspected that he may be coming down with kennel cough and wanted to take the necessary precautions.  Unfortunately, something else was obviously troubling him and on Sunday afternoon Max took a terrible turn for the worse. We regret that we only knew him for such a very short time.   Max was a sweet, fragile, little boy with a great big heart....he will be sadly missed! ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

Maya
I rescued Maya when she was 1 1/2 years old. This fall, after eleven years together, Maya was diagnosed with a rare mesotheliom around her heart.  She faced the treatments so bravely until one day when her heart gave out while I held her in my arms. She gave so much more to me than I gave to her.  Maya - I miss you so much little girl!! ~Terri C.
McDuff
McDuff
Five years ago this very special soul joined our family through Atlanta Pet Rescue. Although his stay was too short, his love for us and ours for him will last forever. From the moment he stepped through the door of our home, he stepped into our hearts. His main responsibility was to look after our then 89 year old mother, which he seemed to understand immediately; he loved his family and was ever vigilant of Mother. He was affectionate and loving, but never demanding of attention. We’re going to miss the little guy terribly. ~ Marylu S.

Melinda had been living outdoors for quite a while, and her coat showed the effects of poor care.  We hoped that TLC and good food would be enough to bring poor Melinda back to good health, but she just didn't seem to be improving with time, so a trip to the vet was in order. Unfortunately, Melinda's blood work revealed she was in kidney failure and there was nothing that we could do for her except to humanely ease her suffering. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

Mercy1
Mercy
It is with an extremely heavy heart that the staff of Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption announces that our sweet girl Mercy has lost her hard-fought battle with Babesia infection. She crossed  the Rainbow Bridge peacefully overnight. Through the tireless efforts of the staff and the many wonderful, caring APRA volunteers who supported Mercy, she spent her final months experiencing what it's like to be loved by many amazing people. For that, we want to thank all of you who offered your time, affection, and financial support to make her final days undoubtedly her happiest. Mercy was both brave and affectionate. She endured tremendous challenges while battling her infection, but never failed to wag her tail when working with the staff and volunteers. Her final days were filled with the things she loved - peanut butter Kongs, walking in the sunshine with her caretakers, and lots of affection. "From the first day Mercy arrived, we knew she was an extraordinary girl who had already faced unimaginable obstacles," said Bob Citrullo, Executive Director of Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption. "We committed to providing her with the best veterinary care, as well as endless love and affection. APRA is an organization made up of animal lovers, so this is an exceptionally difficult time for the staff as well as the volunteers who brightened Mercy's days. She will always be a special part of APRA." APRA would like to thank everyone who supported Mercy's extensive treatment efforts. Our team did everything possible to safely combat her infection. The support improved the quality of Mercy's life, but unfortunately, her illness ultimately proved to be too severe for her body to handle.

Mercy, we know you are a beautiful angel. You will always be a very special part of the APRA family, and in our hearts forever.

Mia
Mia
My sweet Mia. The day I walked into APR I did not plan to adopt, I had never even had a dog before, but something about your little face caught my attention. The nice lady who interviewed me said she felt you would be a perfect first little dog for me. And you were. You captured the hearts of everyone who met you and you never let anyone get by without giving you a tummy rub. I found that the love of a dog is incomparable to any other and I am forever thankful for the 5 years we spent together. Everyone always says they are so glad I rescued you, but I believe you truly rescued me. Peaceful rest for you, my sweet Mia. ~ Allison S.

Minnie
Minnie
We are sad to report that Minnie passed away yesterday during surgery. Late Tuesday evening the pin holding Minnie's leg together broke through the bone and was actually popping through her skin. We immediately rushed her to the veterinarian and they performed emergency surgery the next morning. They soon discovered that the pin had shattered the bone vertically and there were bone fragments all throughout her leg. They were deciding whether to amputate her leg or try and repair it, when her little heart, ravaged by the effects of heartworms, gave out. They tried to resuscitate her, but to no avail, and little Minnie passed away. We were sad to see her go, but at least now she is free of her broken body and at peace. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

Miss Kitty
Our dear Miss Kitty came to us as a birthday gift to my 5 year old son, though she wasn't a kitten at that time but an almost 4 year old cat. We got her on a Saturday from the old Cheshire Bridge "adoption site" on the road! Even though I ended up being allergic to her, we loved her and even with her "ornery" meow, she won our hearts! We miss her so.

Mista Mista was dearly loved in her short time with us. We lost her to a virus that could have been prevented by a responsible caregiver giving her the necessary vaccines she deserved.  Our hearts go out to all of you who also fell in love with this gorgeous and unique soul.  She is in a better place now and we know that she has found loving friends over the Rainbow Bridge to watch over her for us. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

We took her to Buckhead Animal Clinic for an evaluation, fluids and supportive care, however, inspite all of our efforts, Misu crossed over quietly to a world that knows no pain or suffering. We are all very glad to have had the opportunity to spend time with this very special kitty. She was very much loved and will be missed by all. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to our sweet Mitra, who crossed over the Rainbow Bridge today. Although we don’t know for sure, we hope that Mitra passed away peacefully in her sleep. She was truly a special little girl, loved and cherished by those who knew her. She was friendly and loving, always perched on her stool in the middle of the cat room. She got along with the other cats and even the dogs that occasionally stopped in for a visit. Mitra, we take solace imagining you playing with the other cats and dogs at the Rainbow Bridge. You touched our hearts, and we will miss you dearly.

Mulligan
Mulligan
“Please take me home – I promise I’ll be good” said the sign in the window of the shop where you were found at just 5 weeks old.  And we did – but you lied, at least for the first 8 years. You were the most exhuberant, mischievous, comical, empathetic and smart dog we ever had. From winning the hot-dog bobbing contests, to watching your velvety-soft ears bounce on your daily walks, to visiting your friends at the Home Depot, to chewing the corners off pillows to pull the stuffing out, to your puppy-love of Shyla, you made us laugh every single day – what a wonderful gift you gave to us. We will try our best to look at every day as an adventure the way you did, but it will be so hard without you.

Murphy
The cutest lemon Beagle came to APRA around Thanksgiving in 2013 and was appropriately named "Gravy" by APRA, but upon adopting him around Christmas I renamed him Murphy.  Just a few days before Thanksgiving 2014, Murphy got sick and left us suddenly at the age of 3.  This past year he was happy chasing squirrels, getting treats and knew he was loved.

Nala
Nala
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Alisa and Brian, whose beloved pet, Nala, escaped from her crate in Atlanta while in transport from San Diego to Frankfurt over the holidays.  She was later found on I-75, having apparently been hit by a car and killed instantly.  From one of the many, many pet lovers who did what they could to help out and who tenaciously hung onto the hope that she would be found safe, "May Nala be alive and well and happy at the Bridge and may Brian and Alisa be able to find peace and comfort in her memory." What is lovely never dies, but passes into other loveliness, star-dust, or sea-foam, flower or winged air. – Thomas Bailey Aldrich ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

Oliver
Oliver
It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to Oliver. From the moment I rescued Oliver, I knew he was a special dog and would be an important part of my life. Often times, he could cheer me up on a bad day just by his sweet kisses or simply laying by my side. Oliver had been through a stomach surgery and had eventually lost both his hearing and eyesight, but still managed to keep on going with a great spirit. As years went on, Oliver was suffering more and more both mentally and physically, eventually having a significantly diminished quality of life. Oliver passed peacefully with me by his side on Friday, July 29, 2011. It is comforting to know that Oliver is no longer suffering and is running happily through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge.

Onyx
Onyx
This sweet kitty was one of two cats my daughter Amanda found abandoned while living in Florida. I have fond memories of them as kittens snuggling together in my lap. Onyx let her sister Lily take the lead, but Onyx was always sweet of temperment and so very loving.   She and her sister were such a comfort to Amanda when life was not so comforting. ~ Audrey H.

Pasha
Pasha
We are very sad to report that Pasha has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Dr. Merritt at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic offered to care for her over the weekend to ensure that she had round-the-clock care.  Unfortunately, sweet Pasha was unable to completely heal after her surgery.  She had been straining so hard to release her bowels that she perforated her colon. She fought hard but in the end her body could not endure the pain that followed. It helps to know that Pasha is now free from pain and is running through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge. ~Atlanta Pet Rescue

Peaches
Peaches
Our wonderful little girl, Peaches, passed away this morning at 11:07am, Valentine's Day......   She was 11 and 1/2 yrs old, so young. I truly believe this sojourn of hers across the Rainbow Bridge into doggie heaven was bittersweet for her.  She knew that the current earthly pain of the lymphosarcoma (LSA) cancer she had endured over the recent months would be taken away, and we were all happy and relieved of that.  Yet she knew that the emotional pain of being separated from her mommy and daddy, and vica versa, was just something that we all had to accept and make peace with.  And we are all trying our very best at this. Valentine's Day will always have an extra special meaning for us from now onward. A day of sadness, yes, but major relief, and a multitude of remembrances of all of the unconditional joy and love she has provided to us over the years. I feel it is somewhat poetic, that she chose this day to move forward to the next phase of her existence.  She is now having fun romping in heaven, doing her adorable tricks for God, snuggling with her friends and family that preceded her there, and chowing down at a scrumptious heavenly buffet, yummy !! We look forward to reuniting with her spirit in the future,  We will relish it when she stares at us with those soulful brown eyes, while she barks and paws at us for those meaty chicken treats I have in my pocket.  Can't wait to praise her once again after she does something special .......that's a good girl...... We were so blessed to have so many special moments with her !! Woof, woof, woof..... ~ Ted & Jil
  • Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption remembers Peaches fondly!
  • We love you Peaches, our sweet, precious girl !! We miss you so much, Mommy & Daddy
  • Peaches, our amazingly beautiful and smart young daughter, gone way too soon. Eternally, such a very good girl. We miss you so much.... Love, Mommy & Daddy

Penny
Penny
Penny was our dear rescue dog of 6 years. She was a tough old broad, loyal, loving, and ever cuddly. After suffering from numerous illnesses, my fiance, Louis, and I lost her to a cough in April. We can't know for sure, but our vet estimated that she was between 17 and 20 years old. Penny had been abused by a breeder, and was found abandoned in Decatur. When I brought her home, she was at first hesitant and tentative. After a week, she became my dearest friend. It was the joy of my life to show her that she could trust us and that she would always have our love. Penny returned that love one hundred fold. She got older, she went blind, but she really loved her time with us, I am certain. I have taken to calling it her retirement. :-) Louis and I have since adopted another pup through APRA, Simone. Penny taught us that we always want to share our home and lives with dogs. All of the dogs we love are special, but Penny was my very first dog as an adult, and she will always hold a unique place in my heart. ~ Lindsay C.

Dear Phoebe, You entered our lives after spending 1 & 1/2 years in the shelter when no one else wanted you. The day you entered our home you brought us love, joy and much laughter. You took over the bed and our hearts. Your time with us was cut much too short when a terrible disease took you from us. Our hearts are broken & empty without you.

Polly
I wanted to let you know that Polly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge last Tuesday;  she stopped eating and did not leave her doggie bed anymore. Her legs were too weak to support her the Sunday before and Oliver tried to make her eat a chick-fil-a sandwich (her favorite food) but she did not even touch the food.  We gave her fluids for more than 3 years to support her failing kidneys but this time she was just ready to go and there was nothing the vet could have done to turn her fate around this time. He gave her a couple of weeks to live 3 years ago because her kidneys were that bad.  He did not know what a great will to live our cute girl had. We are very happy that we could give her a great home for more than 9 years; at least she had more great years than bad ones. She was not well cared for and we assume she was dumped somewhere in Henry County.  Polly was very gentle with all fosters that went in and out of our home but made it very clear that she was running the show. We are all heartbroken and miss her terribly.  She was everything we could ask for in a 4-legged friend.  Oliver had her cremated and we have her ashes in a beautiful box in our bedroom now.  She will never be forgotten. ~ Claudia

Professor Henry Higgins

Pugslie-BostonX
Pugslie
It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to Pugslie. Poor Pugslie was sick when he first came to us from animal control. After much effort was put into saving his life, the vets finally had to make the tough decision that Pugslie would have no quality of life and was too sick to continue. Pugslie passed peacefully, and we are glad to know he is no longer in pain and is now running through the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

Pumpkin
Pumpkin
My husband and I were driving when the car in front of us hit a dog and kept going.  Noah and I, of course, stopped.  She was this beautiful small orange mix and I instantly fell in love with her.  We immediately carried her to Cherokee Animal Hospital. Unfortunately, her injuries were extremely extensive and the vet said chances are she wouldn't survive through surgery.  Per the vet, the best decision for her was to end her suffering.  I was DEVASTATED!!! I had already planned in my mind to take her home and love her and give her a wonderful home.  It's amazing how you can grow to love something in just a few short minutes.   It felt as if I was having to let go of my baby that had been with me for so long.  Noah and I took financial responsibility for her and held her as she left this world.  The hospital gave me a clay imprint of her paw with the name I had given her.   Needless to say, I do not have a picture of her except for the one that is forever imprinted in my mind and heart.  I have attached a photo of a stuffed animal that resembled Pumpkin's color and sweet face, as well as her clay paw print with her name.  Thanks so much for your kind words and the wonderful things you and Atlanta Pet Rescue do. ~ Amy & Noah G.

Purrsilla
Purrsilla
Purrsilla succumbed to having a severe uterine infection from being bred over and over again at the hands of a greedy owner/breeder who damaged her beyond repair for the sake of their own financial gain.  In the short time in our care, she discovered toys, being clean, having great food, love and attention for the first time. We can only hope that we made her last days happy ones. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue Leave a Flower Call to Action: When you buy from pet stores and/or irresponsible breeders, this is the abuse you are supporting. Tell anyone you know who is considering a pet from either of these sources about Purrsilla, so that perhaps she won't have suffered and died in vain.

Rad1
Rad
When Rad came to us, he was quite under the weather. Tests showed he had major heart damage due to heartworms. We decided the right thing to do was to treat Rad. Knowing the success rate was 50/50 we wanted to give this young pup a fighting chance at a new life-heartworm free. Unfortunately, his heart was not strong enough for the treatment and due to major complications, Rad passed over the Rainbow Bridge today surrounded by his loving foster family. The entire staff and volunteer program at APRA will miss our sweet friend, Rad.

Rosie
Rosie
We lost Rosie unexpectedly while she was under anesthesia preparing for her spay surgery. She arrived with a skin infection and hair loss on her chest, tummy and lower legs, but was recovering well under our care. Rosie would throw herself on her back to shamelessly beg for tummy rubs. She was a precious gift and we will miss her.    ~ Rosie's friends at Atlanta Pet Rescue

Rosie
Rosie was a special girl who brought a smile to the face of everyone she met. She was loving, loyal, and so smart! In her 14 years with us, she brought joy to so many people. Rosie lived a great life, traveling across the country, spending long days playing in beautiful parks and beaches, and having two owners who loved her more than anything in the world. Rosie - we miss you very much and hope you are doing great where you are now.  ~ Love, Momma Emily, Daddy Jeff, Sister Zelda & Aunt Kelly
Rosie
We will always remember Rosie and her adventurous nature. She loved to roam at the Shack and would come back covered in swamp mud. We never exactly knew where she went but no matter how old she got, when she got there she always went exploring. We will never go there and not think of her. She was a good girl and is with Baxter and Zack!

Such a happy, cute girl that made your Mommy and all of us so smiley to be around you! A girl who wasn't always a fan of other dogs, you found a boyfriend in Chiefy and a BFF in Lucy. They will miss you very much, as will all of us. We know you're in a better place, but we'll think of you often and never forget that cute, sweet face!

Ruben
It was with great sadness that Libbie had to say goodbye to her longtime companion and baby, sweet little Ruben, a Bischon-Poodle Mix, on Valentines day! Ruben was rescued by Libbie more than 10 years ago from an old lady who had to go to a retirement home and could not bring Ruben with her. Ruben was around 6-7 years old at that time and not in  good health; however, with Libbie's tender and loving care,  Ruben lived a GREAT life for another 10 years. He was named after the winner of American Idol/Season 2 winner Ruben Studdard, by one of Libbie's granddaughters. Ruben loved to walk in the woods and got along with all his people and doggie families. So long little Ruben!  We will miss  you always! The Lynn Family

Sable
Sable

When I picked Sable up from APR on the April 24, 2004, I had concerns about this abused little girl that had been rescued from a puppy mill. She needed so much tender love and care, not to mention a weight loss plan and a good grooming. She had to endure several eye surgeries and dental surgeries. But she was a fighter!! Little Sable loved me unconditionally and I loved her the same. She brought me pure joy! Although she never learned to play ball or run around the yard due to her heart conditon and years of neglect, she loved a good belly rub, her daily green salad and an occasional munch on a few cheese crackers. On February 18th, due to her heart disease, Sable went to heaven. I miss her dearly.

Sally
Sally
Sally was a sweet girl, a pretty Rat Terrier who came to us in severe pain.  Sally's diagnosis was a spinal injury that had never healed correctly, probably a break. There was nothing that the vet could do to correct Sally's spine. Sadly, the only thing that we could do was to hold her and  to prevent any further suffering. Sally will forever be in the hearts of the many volunteers and staff at Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption that loved her. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue

Sammy Sorgel
I drove to Nashville from Atlanta to “rescue” the cutest 4 year-old dog that ever lived.  Before I left, I asked for a picture and was sent the one shown here.  When I saw those big eyes, looking sad and lonely….begging to be allowed to “rescue me”  from my dogless life, I couldn’t get there fast enough.  It was love before I even met him.  This shy little boy had done so few things, gone almost nowhere.  He was afraid of most people, cars, loud noises, doors and especially other dogs.  Little by little, he learned to feel safe, allowing strangers and children to  pet him while he remained unconcerned.  He liked to accompany me to the store, riding in the buggy and gathering smiles and pats as we went aisle to aisle.  He had a play-date and sleepover with his 2 cockapoo friends every Tuesday & Wednesday to keep him from being lonely while I worked during the week.  On Thursdays and Fridays, we played a game.  While he “hid his eyes” in the bathroom,  I hid treats for him all over the house and he was permitted to start hunting for them as soon as I closed the door to leave for work.  He looked forward to that and waited for me to tell him, “Hide your eyes Sammy,”  whereupon he would head to the bathroom in anticipation of the game.  This little ball of fur gave lavish love and joy beyond measure.   He was 12 years when he finally succumbed to heart and liver disease.  He was my joy, my heart, my buddy and he is already sorely missed.  Goodbye Sammy, farewell, your mommy loves you and she thanks you for rescuing her with your unconditional love.

We are very sad to announce that Sasha lost her battle to the many ailments that she has been trying to overcome for most of her life. Her weak body succombed to the side affects of the medications she was taking and she left us peacefully yesterday afternoon. Sasha's story was an inspiring one and she has definitely left a mark on everyone here at Atlanta Pet Rescue. She will be missed by all, and especially by her devoted foster mom. It helps to know that Sasha is now free from pain and is running through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge.

Stewie
Stewie
It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to little Stewie. Stewie had a visit with the vet today that revealed a long list of medical issues, including prostate cancer and heart problems. The vet said that little Stewie would not have any quality of life and the only thing that could be done would be to relieve him of his suffering. We regret that we only knew Stewie for just a short time. He deserved so much more love throughout his life than he received. We hope that he knows we loved him dearly here at APR, along with all of his donors and supporters. It is good to know that Stewie is no longer in pain or fear and is running happily through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge. He will be missed by all! We would like to thank everyone who so lovingly sponsored Stewie during his brief stay with Atlanta Pet Rescue: Carol A. Margaret B. Cheryl C. Eileen C. Bryan C. Antoinette D. Kristin E. Ashely G.

Tonka
Tonka
We adopted Tonka on 11/11/06. We had two other Boston Terriers at the time, and had never heard of APRA. A friend told us she saw Tonka on the APRA website and that he’d been there for several months. By all accounts from the volunteers and his foster, Tonka was really hoping for a forever home. We loaded up Lucy and Dixie and set out to meet Tonka and make him a part of our family, bringing him home that day. He immediately discovered an old soccer ball in our back yard and became obsessed with “dribbling” it and barking. He almost wore the skin off his lips before we could buy beach balls the next day, which he liked even better! Soon we couldn’t keep a supply  of them on hand, as the dogs went through them quickly. We discovered a website that sold them uninflated and for several years ordered them in cases of 60! Tonka spent a happy 5 yrs+ with us before he made his way over the Rainbow Bridge on 4/19/12. He was a delightful little Boston with a wonderful personality, and we will always be grateful to APRA for bringing him into our lives ~ Cynthia and Pete N.

She fought the good fight but could not beat it.  We and her sister miss her and can't believe she's gone. ~ Marie and Randy B. Note: If you think your cat may have atypical mycobactrium, Marie and Randy want to offer their knowledge on this new disease in hopes that another cat can be saved by it.

Tux - Resized
Tux
Tux showed up at a neighbor's house about 10 years ago.  My neighbor's cats didn't like him, so my neighbor asked me to take him, which I did.  One of my cats didn't like him either but, over the 10 years that I had him, they worked things out.  Tuxie was a very gentle but shy kitty.  He kept to himself but seemed to come out of his shell over the past year.  He enjoyed cuddling and being petted and did a lot of purring!!!  He also loved taking walks with the dogs......I think I will miss that the most!  Tuxie, thanks for blessing me with your presence.  You will be very missed!!! ~ Gigi

Tyler
It is with great sadness that we were forced to say goodbye to Tyler. Poor little Tyler was just too sick and his body succumbed to the illness last night. He will be greatly missed to all who knew him. We can take comfort in knowing that Tyler is running free from illness through the meadows over the Rainbow Bridge. ~Atlanta Pet Rescue

Tyler
Tyler
His journey with us started around September 1996. I will never forget that day as he fell in love with David and us with him. Tyler gave us 12-1/2 wonderful years of love, play, protection, and loyalty. When Evan came along, Tyler immediately became his protector sleeping in Evan‘s room by the crib. When any of us needed comforting, Tyler would always be there – he was really wise that way. In his last month with us, he became very ill – but his loyalty would not let him give up. With a lot of pain and love, we decided to help him let go so his pain would end. Tyler, we love you. ~Love Donna, Les, Julie, Dave and Evan

Weezie
Weezie
Our pretty kitty!  Since we lost you, Mommy misses our conversations.  Other people thought you were grumpy but I know you just had a lot to say. Daddy misses having you always on his lap; he says Sunday mornings when no one else is awake are when he misses you most. Your bratty little sister Annie doesn’t sleep on your pillow any more; without you here to be annoyed, it seems there are lots of other pillows to sleep on. We all miss you very much. Bye Baby Girl.

Wellington
Wellington
Wellington died on a glorious Saturday morning. We at Atlanta Pet Rescue loved him dearly. Wellie was with us for two months following his rescue from a cruel breeder.  During that time, he showed us his resilient spirit and gentle, sweet nature.  Wellie had become the official greeter in the cat room and was always happy to see his friends.  There is an empty place in the cat room and in our hearts. ~ Lyndel

Woody
Woody
Woodstock came into our hearts and home in July, 2003.  Found wandering on Hwy. 92 with almost no fur, he willingly climbed into my car.  Dr. Fran Nicholson of Hollyberry Animal Hospital in Roswell checked him out that day and gave him extra special care, right up to his last minutes-we will always be grateful to her. Estimated at 10 years old, it took some hard work to get his coat and overall health back. He went on to graduate from obedience school and become a Happy Tails Pet Assisted Therapy dog. Finally, his hip bones deteriorated and arthritis made moving very painful and we had to let him cross over the Rainbow Bridge to join the rest of our beloved pets. We take comfort knowing he is now free from pain but will miss him always. ~ Pat, Ray, Magnolia, Mulligan and Annabelle

Ziggy was a special joy to all who met him.  He was a sweet mama's boy, and he lived a long, great life filled with love and affection.  He will be sorely missed by his family and friends, but never forgotten. He left a heart-shaped pawprint on our hearts. ~ for Gini and Janis E.

Zimmer
Zimmer
Zimmer came to us shy and scared. We were unaware, but Zimmer had been exposed to a virus and was already sick when we got him.  The timing of his disease and being neutered was unfortunately too much for him to handle. The surgery had bottomed out his little immune system and he simply could not fight off the virus.  He was only with us for two days, but he was loved. ~ Atlanta Pet Rescue
