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…
This page is dedicated to the bunnies we have loved who have crossed over to rainbow bridge.
|If you would like to have your beloved bunny added to our Rainbow Bridge memorial, please email us their story and a picture if you have one to send.|
With great sadness, we mourn the loss of our beautiful Rex bunny, Amirah. Adopted from the HRS in May 2010, we were blessed to know her and to feel her love until she passed over the Rainbow Bridge on January 25, 2014. We don’t know her true age, but estimate that she lived 11-12 years. […]

Kathy and Wallace Arnold saw their precious bunny, Amber, gently over to the Rainbow Bridge today (March 8, 2013). Amber was a beautiful, spirited girl who lived and loved life to its fullest. She developed a neurological illness that claimed her life and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Kathy sent […]
The following tribute was written by, Ronda, one of our chapter managers and a foster mom to many of our rescue buns. Ronda gives much of her time and her heart to our rescue rabbits. Though rewarding, it can be a difficult job at times like these. Those of us at the GHRS mourn the […]
We are sad to report that one of our adopted bunnies, Dobby, has passed away. You may remember Dobby as the bun with the helicopter ears. It was a noticeable characteristic that made him so very expressive and, frankly, irresistible. Dobby was a bit shy in new situations but once he felt safe, his sweet […]

Sweetie came to live with the Sayeg Family in June, 1996 and although Edie knew nothing about rabbits, she quickly fell in love with her. A quirky and spunky bun, Sweetie quickly dominated the household. Snickers came to live with Sweetie and the family a year later – here is the memorial that Edie did for them after they passed to the Rainbow Bridge way to early. They will live forever in her heart and in the lives of the many rescued buns that Edie has worked to save in the memory of these two special buns!
He came to live with us in May 2008, when his first forever home changed its mind. It was a day for celebration.

This spring, Emmeline, a five pound, brown and white Dwarf rabbit, became ill and passed away. Emmeline’s owner, Megan, adored her and was devastated by the loss.

With a sadden heart on February 16th we had to put our little Mocha down. Mocha was diagnosed back in June 2010 by Dr. Stewart Colby with sebaceous adenitis which is a very rare disease to rabbits. Mocha was 1 of 5 bunnies in the U.S. to have ever been diagnosed with such a disease. […]
Trix’s story was particularly upsetting. She was won, yes WON, at a county fair. Apparently the lucky winner was more interested in a toy than a rabbit and Trix was forfeited to the Cherokee Animal Shelter once the family grew tired of the responsibility. She was a young girl, approximately 6 months old when she […]
Regina was a beautiful Rex rabbit rescued by the shelter. She was a sweet, smart and happy little girl that we all loved very deeply. It was impossible not to! Her affectionate nature was so endearing and her soft Rex coat was wonderful to pet. She was one of those special buns that loved to […]
We are sad to report that we lost little Louie unexpectedly just a few weeks ago. Louie was one of the babies born to an abandoned bun we rescued from the Cherokee animal shelter. It was a joy to watch him grow along with his litter mates. Our hearts go out to Cris, Louie’s adoptive […]
