Memorials for our loved ones who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge
A very close friend of the rescue lost his son recently unexpectedly. We are devastated and have been thinking about his family constantly. In true fashion of this friend and his family’s character, they had memorials sent to ALIVE Memphis, in lieu of flowers. The list of those who donated included Donna White Royal and the DCS Technology Department, Lendon Balch, Michelle Cummings, Arron DeShazo, Shelby Elmore, Pete Hicks, Chuck Jolley, Russ Kicker, Jennifer Klinger, Jen & Brett Marshall,Justin McCandless, Stacie Moultrie, Cassie Sanders, Tina Streeter and others.
Joey was a huge dog lover and we know that means he had a massive heart and an incredible spirit. We are wrapping all of our arms and paws around the Pope family as they grieve the loss of their son Joey who we know is loving all those pups who have crossed the bridge.
We brought Bruin home on 12/5/15. He was the fluffiest dog with the big smile, loving spirit and personality. He embraced life fully, loved people, to wrestle with his lil sis Sasha, and treats. He had a patented move, the claw, to get his humans to pet him. He made us smile everyday with his presence and got us through tough times too. We were so lucky he chose us and only wish we had more time with him. He changed our lives and we miss him more than he’ll ever know.
Bruin, we at Alive Rescue know how much a loving spirit can impact those around them. Thank you for changing the lives of your family with your fluff and sweetness. We are sad to see you cross over the Rainbow Bridge but know that you made a difference while you were here.

Beaumont Barkley (Beau) Sims-
Though not a rescue dog, Beau was an orphan in need of a home when he was just two months old. That’s when he came into our lives, and we have been so blessed ever since. He loved to go camping, to visit with the kids in my middle school classroom, and to ride in the car every chance he could get. He traveled with us across the country several times and toured more national parks than most people we know. He would have been 14 a few days ago, Nov. 24, 2017, but he died suddenly of a brain tumor in July. He was so very special and so very loved. Now he is missed more than we can say.
Beau, all of us at Alive Rescue Memphis applaud your sweet spirit and valiant heart. Thank you for loving your family and impacting their lives. Thank you for encouraging all of us to strive to create the best lives possible that we can for those around us- animal and human alike. We wish we could have met you.
-So much love.

Sweet Brandy also called Branyboop or Boop was in the Tuttle home from birth her mom. She would make a crazy sound like Chewbacca whenever we mentioned a walk or if Big Sal (her human grandmother) came because she always gave her a treat :) Her boy cousins loved her and always had to cuddle whenever they came to visit. She was their queen.
Brandy, we are so happy that you lived your whole life with such a loving family. You remind us how important family is and that they are the ones we can always depend on. We know they miss you so much because of all the joy you brought to them.
