Honoring the Lives of Our Cherished Pets

Losing a beloved pet is one of the most difficult experiences we go through.

At Turkey Creek Animal Hospital, we understand the deep bonds that form between pets and their families. We hope this memorial page can serve as a place to honor the special lives of the animals who have touched us so deeply. If you would like to create a memorial for your pet, please submit their name, photo(s), and a short bio or story about what made them so special to you.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When a beloved pet passes away, they go to The Rainbow Bridge, where they can run and play with old friends until the day comes when they are reunited with their family.

You can read the full Rainbow Bridge poem here.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal passes ies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the 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 who 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 a 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.
