If your pets are left behind at the Rapture
SPECIAL TO THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Published 04:29 p.m., Sunday, May 15, 2011

May 21 draws near.

Harold Camping, 89-year-old founder of Family Radio, has predicted that Jesus will return in a week or so. Maybe you've seen the billboards. Perhaps you've heard of some followers selling everything they have to get the word out.

And, of course, the pressing question is: "What happens to the pets left behind?"

Not to fear. Various atheistic entrepreneurs have offered to fill the gap. For a fee, Fi-Fi will have a home after her owners have exited this planet. Here are some sites for Christian pet owners.

Aftertherapturepetcare.com. People can register pets at PayPal and volunteer pet caretakers will assume responsibility after the Rapture.

Eternal-earthbound-pets.com. For $135 per pet, a group of rescuers will step forward to retrieve pets left behind.

Hope they make some good money off these folks...

3. I'll do it for $75 per pet. Payment in advance. NO refunds.

Solly's Eternally Yours will only assume care of your pet in the event of owners disappearance due to the May 21, 2011 rapture. If owner disappears for any other reason at other other time, Solly's Eternally Yours assumes no responsibility for the pet. And remember...NO Refunds.

Cash or Money order ONLY.

4. They'd leave their pets with a bunch of sinners?
And how do they hire these pet caretakers? Do they have to PROVE they're bad enough NOT to get raptured?

This is a nice scam.

7. Well, there's the beauty of it -
no one who is crooked enough to run this kind of scam is ever going to go to heaven, therefore you KNOW you can trust them to be around after the rapture, right?

5. "If you aren't a good enough person to provide for the care of your pets...
... then you're probably not a good enough person to be raptured."

That would be MY sales pitch.
