Business offers plan for left-behind pets in rapture

Apparently the world will end Oct. 21, 2011. To prepare for the inevitability that all dogs most certainly will not go to heaven, a nationwide business will offer to take care of your pets once you've been raptured. The cost: $135 for the first pet, $20 for each additional.

Oklahoma is home to three rescuers and 21 clients.

The contract with Eternal Earth-Bound Pets is good for 10 years. Honestly, my older dog probably won't live that long, so I think I'd negotiate a deal. How about five years for $67.50? Or seven years for $94.50? Or, because I'll apparently only need this insurance temporarily, what about $1 for the rest of the week?

Business for Centre and his colleagues usually spikes in the months leading up to the predicted apocalypse. This time hasn't been as busy, he said. Camping predicts the world will be destroyed immediately after the rapture. Oklahoma is one of the hottest states right now, he said.

As an atheist, Centre doesn't believe in Judgment Day or anything like it. So he doesn't expect he'll have to make good on his contracts Saturday. He and his wife plan to have a regular day, along with their two dogs.

“They're atheist,” he said. “None of us are going anywhere.”
