Rainbow Bridge Memories

This page is dedicated in loving memory to the MNSR alumni who found their forever families and are now waiting for us at the Bridge. 

Rainbow Bridge Stories

With many tears and great sadness, we said goodbye to our dear, dear very sweet foster girl Sophie on February 3rd, 2018. We were honored to care for Sophie twice in her lifetime, such a wonderful, loving girl. She was loved and pampered by her foster mom, who kept her comfortable until it was time for Sophie to gain her Sheltie angel wings. Being a hospice foster home is one of the most generous, selfless gifts and we are so grateful to Sophie's foster mom. Our thoughts are with all who knew and loved Sophie while we were blessed to have her in the MNSR family.

Cassie and her sister came into rescue when their person passed away. Fortunately, a new foster home was able to take them both and quickly became their forever home. Cassie and her new family moved to California which allowed for daily walks year round. She always wanted to be with mom and would listen for the garage door opening so she could be at the door as soon as mom came in. Cassie crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 7th, 2018 and is missed so very much by her mom and her Sheltie sister, Willow.  

Chico came to us as a foster 5 years ago at the age of ten. We were so blessed to make him a permanent member of our family. He was full of love and gave us so many wonderful memories. Chico gained his angel wings on January 2nd, 2018. Rest in peace, little man. May you get lots of belly rubs in heaven. 

Jake came into rescue in 2014 at the age of 11 due to a change in his household, and we soon learned that he had some medical issues that would require long-term care. We were fortunate to find a very loving couple who doted on Jake and played his favorite games with him. We are grateful Jake was so loved with his forever foster family. Jake crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 28th, 2017.
