🐾 You left paw prints on my heart 🐾

Walk in honour of past pets and impact the lives of future pets.

A pet’s mission in life is to love us unconditionally. Through the good times and the hard times, they are a best friend through life’s journey. No time on Earth is long enough to share with the animals we love or prepare our hearts to say goodbye.

Honouring the beloved, supporting the vulnerable

By registering for our Mission Pawsible 2K Dog Walk, you can create a fundraising page to honour the pets that have made a lasting impact in your life. Through your support, you can help us raise funds to assist vulnerable animals in our care, allowing you to leave a meaningful legacy for the animals that need it most.

Our Mission Pawsible 2K Dog Walk we will pay tribute to the pets who have left paw prints on our hearts by leaving footprints on the trail.

Before the walk, participants will receive a rainbow pinwheel where they can inscribe the name of their pet and date of passing and place it amongst a field of rainbow pinwheels before the walk. Participants can also write a tribute message to the pets they have lost on our Rainbow Bridge board. To commence the walk, we will hold a one-minute silence to pay our respects to the beloved pets.


“There is no greater power on Earth than a story.” 

In times of pet loss, it can be challenging to find solace and understanding. Our Rainbow Bridge page aims to provide a supportive community where individuals can connect with others who are also navigating through the journey of pet loss grief.  

We believe that by coming together and sharing our experiences, we can find comfort, healing, and a sense of connection with others who truly understand the depth of our emotions. Our hope is that this platform will foster a compassionate and understanding community for those struggling with grief and reminding us that we are not alone in our feelings of loss and that our pets' legacies will live on in our hearts forever.  

Share your stories of the past or present pets who have left footprints on your heart by tagging @oakvillemiltonhumane on Instagram to be added to our Mission Pawsible Legacy highlight or email us your story and photos at


“By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

Gabby & Milo

“Today you would have been 13. I had just turned 13 when you came into my life. I guess you can say that I don’t really remember a life without you in it.  

Before you, I wished for you. I would go to bed wishing and hoping to wake up to a puppy to call my own. I now go to bed to wake up wishing and hoping you were still here.  

In the 12 years we shared together, I learned how much I can love another and even more so, miss another.  I am forever grateful.  Happy birthday Milo.

I am raising funds and walking in honour of Milo at Mission Pawsible.”

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.”
