But what of your pets? They are not likely going with, so are they just to starve in you absence? No, they aren't, at least if you pay up $135 in advance (!) to a company of atheists who are as unlikely to be taken as your pets.
In 2009, he launched Eternal Earth-Bound Pets USA. Centre guarantees that if or when the Rapture comes he or one of his 44 contractors in 26 states, including Washington, will drive to your home within 24 hours, collect your dog, cat, bird, rabbit or small caged mammal, and adopt it. (Rapture rescue services for horses, camels, llamas and donkeys are limited to New Hampshire, Vermont, Idaho and Montana.)[Source.]
The cost is $135, plus $20 per additional animal. Payable upfront, of course, and good for 10 years.
"Right now, we have over 250 clients," said Centre, 62, who is retired and pens anti-religion books under the name Dromedary Hump.
Centre says he has carefully screened all the rescuers. They have to love animals, of course, but just as important is that they don't love Jesus. For obvious reasons, they're all atheists.
