Smudger: the inspiration behind Northern SBT Rescue....
Now at Rainbow Bridge.

Rainbow Bridge

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 us special friends so they can and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our furry friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had 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 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 or her's bright eyes are intent as their eager body quivers with anticipation and joy. Suddenly he or she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, as their legs carry them 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 familiar beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your furry companion, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
