Enterprising atheist animal lovers are cashing in on religious pet owners who believe the world is about to end.
Some US Christian fundamentalists believe Judgement Day will begin with a massive earthquake on Saturday.
They say believers will immediately go to Heaven while the rest of us have another five months to suffer until the world ends in October.
The problem is that many fundamentalists are reportedly worried about what happens to their pets when they go to Heaven.
A new company - Eternal Earth-Bound Pets - is offering to step up to "take that burden off your mind".
"You've committed your life to Jesus. You know you're saved," the company says on its website.
"But when the Rapture comes, what's to become of your loving pets who are left behind?"
The post-Doomsday pet rescue service says it already already has 259 clients, who have paid $135 for the first pet and $20 for each additional pet.
All the rescuers are sworn atheists, which means they will be left behind on Earth, ready to rescue pets after their Christian owners have gone to the other side.
Eternal Earth-Bound Pets co-founder Bart Centre said: "This will happen only if and when the Rapture happens. So we do not expect to have to do anything on Saturday."

Who's gonna look after all the rebellious teens these raptured parents leave behind? So, many issues we're gonna have to deal with this Sunday.
On a serious note, I hope these believers don't do something stupid.
A total of 909 Temple members died in Jonestown, all but two from apparent cyanide poisoning, in an event termed "revolutionary suicide"
In case your dog isn't as innocent as you thought, can I have $135 & I pinky promise to look after your dog. after the rapture of course.
I love my dog... maybe I should do this (seeing as I am an angel and out of here too then but so is my dog and they DO have souls and will come with me)
