Adopt A Dog

Find your forever friend

Memorial Page

When you welcome a dog into your home you also welcome them into your heart.  Once they pass they never leave our hearts.  We would like to create this page as a way to have a lasting memorial to all those Rockin P Rescue dogs who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.   

To add your dog to this page please send your information through the form below and we will add their story to our memorial page.  


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….

Loving Words: The pic in the grass with Bunny happened 2 years ago when our smoke alarm malfunctioned and would not stop. She went immediately to the door, and I let her out, assuming that the noise bothered her. However, while I held the door open, she ran back into the house, tossed her bed around until she located Bunny, then ran back to me and out into the yard. She rescued Bunny, then whined at us until I finally turned the thing off and the whole family went outside and sat with her awhile. The pic of her snuggling Bunny in her bed was taken just last weekend, on her happy roadtrip. We didn’t put Bunny there; she took him to bed and snuggled him, just as she’s always done. I have to add a pic of Gigi with her cat, Vinny. I found him as a kitten ten years ago and brought him home. He was really too young to be weaned, and very sick. As soon as I brought him into the house, Gigi was ecstatic. She went off her feed and was despondent for two days while he was at the vet. I had to take her into Auburn and let kids pose for pictures with her and feed her ice cream to take her mind off of him, and she’d only known him for one day! When he came home, she took over all the Mommy duties except for nursing. She protected him from the other cat, she bathed him constantly, and he slept in the kennel with her, usually on her paws or with one paw on Gigi’s nose. They remained close her whole life.

Loving Words: Otis was a wonderful Boxer. He loved to chase sticks, swim, run, and most of all keep us company. His facial expressions were great. He came to the rescue with an existing leg injury but that didn’t slow him down. I miss my crazy Otis dog!

Rockin P Hospice Dog

Loving Words: Barbara was such a blessing for all that she touched. Her life prior to RPR was hard and filled with neglect. Her loving nature was able to shine through! Her body couldn’t overcome her medical conditions, but her spirit soared.  We are blessed to have been allowed to help her in just a small way. You will be missed Barbara.

Loving Words: Emmie was the very best dog. She loved all people and other dogs. She was always so excited to see me and I tried to take her everywhere with me. I miss her terribly. There will never be another dog like her. I hope we meet again one day.
