The Rainbow Bridge Custom Letters

Did you know that our very own rainbow pup Jimmy Belcher, Newcomer’s Club Ambassador can send you a personalized, illustrated letter from the rainbow bridge? Nothing would make his beautiful tail wag really fast more than writing one for you too! He just received the sweetest thank you note from one of his human friends.
Dearest Jimmy,
I wanted to let you know I received your letter and oh my dog, it brought the biggest smile (and tears) to my face. As always, it was perfect timing. I have read it so many times and have it framed and placed where I can see it every day! It still brings me joy and peace when I need it most.
Those are tears of pure joy and gratitude. I’m so lucky to have met you and your mom and dad! I can’t express how much joy these letters have brought me.
Please give him a big hug for me. I know he is always in my heart too. Your letters help me remember that. Thank you, Jimmy. I appreciate you more than you could ever imagine.
I think I’ll sleep peacefully today. Kisses for you and Oliver. — C.K., Redondo Beach, CA
Jimmy can bring you peace and joy, too! Find out more about his special letters and how you can request one at

Each year we’re honored to support our local rescues with donated portraits to help raise much needed funds. Our most recent donation was a portrait for the winner of Forsyth Humane Society 2022 calendar contest and the winners are . . . the most adorable pair you’ll ever meet, Giovanni the Corgi and Ella the Golden Retriever. Yesterday, their mom made our day with this lovely note about their painting and the whole portrait process.

“It is amazing!!!!!! We can’t believe how wonderful it is and how much it looks like them! The artist, Todd is incredible and his wife is so so nice to work with! Top notch people. The whole participation in the first ever calendar contest was a true delight, not to mention I am glad that FHS exceeded its fundraising goals! I hope next year will be as much of a success for you. Ella and Giovanni will step aside to share the limelight with some other cute dogs and cats. But we are very grateful to have participated and we can’t wait to give out calendars as gifts this Holiday. Thanks to you and to Todd and Stephanie as well as Lauren and Dave with DesiLu. All the best!” J.B. — Summerfield, NC
