42 Comforting Rainbow Bridge Quotes For Dealing with Grief

Here is our collection of rainbow bridge quotes that we hope will help you to find peace.

The loss of any pet is a traumatizing experience. Over time we become very attached to our wonderful pets. Owning a pet is a privilege and when the time on the clock runs out, learning to live without feels impossible. To soften the blow of losing our beloved animal we must remember that there is a special place in heaven for them too. The rainbow bridge is the path that guides them on their way, and there we will meet them again one day!

I'm sure people have told you "it will get easier" or "they had a good life" but I know first hand that these words don't help to comfort you much. Your heart has been ripped from your chest, in the same way it would if you lost a human family member, so the only way to deal with this is to just keep going. Keep pushing on and remember that you gave your loved one the best possible life, he/she loved you and you were the most important thing (yes even more than his/her favorite toy) in his life. Your love for them will never die no matter how many years go by, so keep your memories close and remember the good times you had together.

I pray that these quotes can bring you some sort of comfort and please accept a big proverbial hug from us!

  28. Rainbow Bridge Dog Quotes

    A dog is a very special animal, one that will stay by your side night and day. They are one of the most loyal friends a human could ask for. They don't judge you or answer back but simply love you unconditionally. For many a dog is a savior, a reason to get up in the morning a reason to live and once they are stolen away life becomes dark again. When we lose this special gift our hearts will be broken sometimes to the same extent of losing a human loved one. We will always remember these special animals and the happiness they brought into our lives, and they will leave their paw prints on our hearts forever. We hope that you can find some peace in these dog rainbow bridge quotes and that those pieces of your broken heart begin to mend.
