In Memory of Roxanne Ramsey December 2001 - June 2017


Thank you all for the great care of my sweet Roxanne!!
You always treated her like she was your own through the multiple visits and surgeries.
You tenderly ended her pain and I will be forever grateful.

In Memory of Possum Beeler 1996-2013


"My sweet, sweet baby girl....you will be missed. We often thought your behavior was more like a dog than a cat. Waiting for "mama" to get home each evening and greeting me at the door with your sweet face. My husband called her my "shadow" as she would, literally, follow me around everywhere....even if I went outside to work in the garden. My shadow is still with me....just in spirit now.  I had the privilege of having her in my life for 16 years. Thank you to Dr. Godine and his staff for their kind words and condolences. Your team is truly special."

 -Mrs. Beeler

 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 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 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....

“Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened.” ~ Anatole France

Charlie was a wonderful and handsome boy who always had a smile on his face! 

In loving memory of Shylo Craig. She was an incredibly tough and wonderful girl and will be greatly missed by all of us here at R.A.H.

Dakota, who fell in love with everyone she met!

 In Loving Memory of Beethoven 2005-2012:


And God asked the feline spirit

Are you ready to come home?

Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul

And, as a cat, you know I am most able

To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God

Soon, replied the whiskered angel

But I must come slowly

For my human friends are troubled

For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God

That you'll never leave them?

That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?

That nothing is created or destroyed?

It just is...forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,

Replied the glorious cat

For I will whisper into their hearts

That I am always with them

I just am...forever and ever and ever
