Pet Care in a Post-Rapture World

You may recall, an Internet service designed to automatically email pre-written messages from you in the event of the Rapture, giving you "one last opportunity to reach your lost family and friends for Christ." It claims to be a site "programmed and run by Christians, for Christians."

Well, it seems atheists have now decided to cash in on the Rapture. Their gimmick: offering to care for pets once their Christian masters have flown the coop.

The site, Eternal Earth-Bound Pets, makes the following claim:
    We are a group of dedicated animal lovers, and atheists. Each Eternal Earth-Bound Pet representative is a confirmed atheist, and as such will still be here on Earth after you've received your reward. Our network of animal activists are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus.

    We are currently active in 20 states and growing. Our representatives have been screened to ensure that they are atheists, animal lovers, are moral/ethical with no criminal background, have the ability and desire to rescue your pet and the means to retrieve them and ensure their care for your pet's natural life.
Sure, this is an obvious attempt at mockery (despite the insistence that it isn't a joke), but I cannot help but wonder how many dispensationalists might actually take them up on this.
