Melbourne, May 19: For those Christians worrying about the welfare of their pets they leave behind on the day of the Rupture, a suitable option could be to make arrangements with the atheists.
A company called Eternal Earth-Bound Pets USA is offering to take care of your pet in the event you are called to heaven on Judgement Day, May 21st.
“You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved. But when the Rapture comes, what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind?” Eternal Earth-Bound Pets says on its website, offering to “take that burden off your mind”, reports News.com.au.
The post-Doomsday pet rescue service already has 259 clients, who have paid 135 dollars for the first pet and 20 dollars for each additional pet at the same address, to ensure the faithful animal companions are looked after and loved even when their Christian owners have gone to the other side.
All the rescuers are sworn atheists, which means they will definitely be left behind on Earth, ready to rescue pets after the Rapture, which one US Christian fundamentalist group has pencilled in for Saturday.
When Judgement Day happens, Eternal Earth-Bound Pets co-founder Bart Centre “will notify all of our rescuers to go into action and they will drive to the homes of anyone who’s signed a contract with us, pick up their pets and take them home and adopt them as their own, keeping them happy and healthy for the rest of their lives.
“This will happen only if and when the Rapture happens. So we do not expect to have to do anything on Saturday,” Centre said. (ANI)
