When an animal dies 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 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 ...

DR. KATHRYN DOBYNS & STAFF AT MIDDLE RIVER VETERINARY HOPSPITAL, VERONA, VA who I feel saved the life of my little Papillon, RYDER after a serious grooming accident.

JANET BEVINS & STAFF AT HOME AWAY FROM HOME, WAYNESBORO, VA who cared for my Ryder, who needed to wear an Elizabethan Collar for 8-10 months.

So in honor of all these ladies, and in memory of Ryder, who gave me his constant love and companionship for almost 16 years. Sincerely, Linda Burgdorf

Special Thanks


Great news! The Mosby Foundation's Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance Program has once again received a generous grant from the Petco Foundation! This is a big help to our program, which provides financial assistance to low income families who cannot afford even low cost spay/neuter clinic prices to have their animals spayed or neutered.  Thanks to the Petco Foundation and the DJ& T Foundation for recent grants to support this lifesaving program!
