Eternal Earth-Bound Pets ensures no pet gets 'left behind'

Call it the post rapture pet rescue.

An enterprising atheist wants to make sure that any pets left behind by Christians who depart this Earth in the rapture, don't get left out in the cold.

For $110 Eternal Earth-Bound Pets of New Hampshire is offering a 10-year contract guaranteeing that an animal-loving atheist will take care of their pets. Additional pets can be covered for $15.

The service is currently offered in 22 states, but not in Pennsylvania - yet.

Under terms of the contract, there is no refund for pet owners who may lose their faith and are not raptured.

The company's owner, Bart Centre, told the Associated Press that his pet rescuers definitely won't be raptured because they've all blasphemed the Holy Spirit in writing, committing what they believe Jesus called the unforgivable sin.

His Web site says the rescuers are animal lovers who "are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus."
