    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge and waits for his owner to join him.

    We all have our favorite pets who have enriched our lives, and we miss them terribly when they are gone.

    The CFA Foundation has set up a "Memorial Corner" in the Feline Historical Museum in Alliance, Ohio. This is an excellent opportunity to have a permanent memorial for a pet that has been a special part of our lives, whether it's a cat, dog, hamster, or gerbil, etc.

    Our book of pet memorials, "Memories are the Timeless Treasures of the Heart", contains 4" x 5-1/2" cards that will be personalized with your specific message. For a $15.00 fee, your personal message, plus a photograph of your pet if you so choose, will be printed on a card for inclusion in the Memorial Book.

    Text and the $15.00 payment for your memorial can be sent through PayPal via the link below.

    Name of Pet
    Text for Memorial Card

    Alternatively, a check ($15.00 for each memorial, payable to "CFA Foundation"), the text of your message, and a photograph to be scanned (stamped self-addressed envelope required for return) can be sent via mail to The CFA Foundation, Inc, PO Box 2155, Alliance, OH 44601.


    If you would like a photo included on your memorial card, please send an image file by email to info@FelineHistoricalFoundation.org, and be sure to include your name and the name of your pet.

    'Otto', our Rainbow Bridge cat, is the creation of Nancy Whelan for the 'Cat'n Around Catskills' annual exhibit of cats. He is the perfect cornerstone for the museum's new Rainbow Bridge Memorial.
