The Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.
There is always food and water and warm spring weather.
The old and frail animals are young again.
Those who are maimed are made whole again.
They play all day with each other.

There is only one thing missing.
They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth.
So, each day they run and play,
until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! 
The nose twitches!
The ears are up!
The eyes are staring!
And this one runs from the group!

You have been seen,
and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her in your arms and embrace.
Your face is kissed again and again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.  

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

a Salute to Rescuers!


Not all of us live on a farm or have acres or property to consider burying a pet, but we are fortunate to have pet cemeteries located in the Pittsburgh area.  We offer caskets for the burial and monuments to mark the grave.  The monuments can even be personalized with a photo, favorite toy, or any other number of items.  Please contact us to see how we can assist you in arranging burial or designing a grave marker.

Should you ever need our services, or just have question please email us at or call 1-412-664-9178.


While there are human crematories in McKeesport, there are no pet crematories.  Therefore, local funeral homes will provide shelter and transportation to a pet crematory.  We have created a warm and comfortable room for you to say a last goodbye to your beloved pet, in case you just left a clinical setting. 

As we provide pet cremation as a compassionate service to families; costs are often lower than traveling to a pet crematory.  

We also offer pet urns, jewelry, paw impressions, and locks of fur.
