Amigurumi Pro Rescue

Amigurumi pro IG Rescue Center Italia!


Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, andnuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.[1] Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features,[2] as is typical in Japanese culture. The pervading aesthetic of amigurumi is cuteness. To this end, typical amigurumi animals have an over-sized spherical head on a cylindrical body with undersized extremities, usually termed a chibi style outside of Japan. Amigurumi may be used as children's toys but are generally purchased or made solely for aesthetic purposes. (Source Wikipedia)

Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like to ask for contributions or donations of money without giving anything in return, and so I thought to knit  and sell this cute little friends to enjoy your home! The money collected with  the sale allow us to continue to help dogs and cats in need and cover their veterinary expenses and  neutering/spayment costs.

The Rainbow Bridge 

Version for Rescuers

(or better "Why personally i am not afraid to die") 


Unlike most days at the Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray. All the recent arrivals at the Bridge did not know what to think, as they had never seen such a day. But the animals who had been waiting longer for their beloved people to accompany them across the Bridge knew what was happening and they began to gather at the pathway leading to the Bridge.

Soon an elderly dog came into view, head hung low and tail dragging. He approached slowly and, though he showed no sign of injury or illness, he was in great emotional pain. Unlike the animals gathered along the pathway, he had not been restored to youth and vigor upon arriving at the Bridge. He felt out of place and wanted only to cross over and find happiness. But, as he approached the Bridge, his way was barred by an angel, who apologized and explained that the tired and broken-spirited old dog could not cross over. Only those animals accompanied by their people were allowed to cross the Bridge.

Having nobody and with nowhere else to turn, the dog trudged into the field in front of the Bridge. There he found others like himself: elderly or infirm, sad and discouraged. Unlike the other animals waiting to cross the Bridge, these animals were not running or playing. They simply were lying in the grass, staring forlornly at the pathway across the Rainbow Bridge. The old dog took his place among them, watching the pathway and waiting, yet not knowing for what he was waiting.

One of the newer dogs at the Bridge asked a cat who had been there longer to explain what was happening. 
The cat replied: "Those poor animals were abandoned, turned away or left at rescue places, but never found a home on earth. They all passed on with only the love of a rescuer to comfort them. Because they had no people to love them, they have nobody to escort them across the Rainbow Bridge." 
The dog asked the cat: "So what will happen to those animals?"

Before the cat could answer, the clouds began to part and the cold turned to bright sunshine. 
The cat replied: "Watch, and you will see." 
In the distance was a single person and, as he approached the Bridge, the old, infirm and sad animals in the field were bathed in a golden light. They were at once made young and healthy, and stood to see what their fate would be. The animals who had previously gathered at the pathway bowed their heads as the person approached. 
At each bowed head, the person offered a scratch or hug.

One by one, the now youthful and healthy animals from the field fell into line behind the person. Together, they walked across the Rainbow Bridge, to a future of happiness and unquestioned love. 
The dog asked the cat: "What just happened?" 
The cat responded: "That was a rescuer. The animals gathered along the pathway bowing in respect were those who had found their forever homes because of rescuers. They will cross over when their people arrive at the Bridge. The arrival here of a rescuer is a great and solemn event, and as a tribute they are permitted to perform one final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort all those poor animals they couldn't place on earth across the Rainbow Bridge.

"The dog thought for a moment, then said: "I like rescuers." The cat smiled and replied: "So does heaven, my friend. So does heaven."


Again thanking all the people there are and there will be close to this mission we wish you all a good time!
