Hey guys. Ernie here. Today is Remember Me Thursday®…a day to shine a light on those orphan pets in shelters and rescues who are waiting for their forever homes…and also to remember those that sadly never made it out. Started by the Helen Woodward Animal Center, Remember Me Thursday® is a day to get the entire world talking about pet adoption.
Y’know…I was a shelter cat. I know what it’s like being stuck in a cage day after day…lemme tell you, it’s not fun. Oh yeah, it’s better than being on the streets fending for yourself, but it’s nothing like having a forever home. I was one of the lucky ones. I found my forever home. But there’re still so many wonderful animals sitting in shelters waiting for their forever homes.
Like these guys…they’re all at the Wyandotte Animal Adoption Center…the shelter the mom volunteers with. Jordan, Comet and Kiana…along with many other great cats and dogs…have been at the shelter far too long waiting for their forever homes.
What can you do to support Remember Me Thursday® and cats like Jordan, Comet and Kiana*? Adopting a shelter pet would be the best way. Yeah, we know that’s not something everyone can do. But you can spread the word about the importance of pet adoptions. Today, tweet, tag, post and share on social media the life-saving significance of pet adoption. Make sure you use the hashtags #RememberTheRescue and #RememberMeThursday. Let’s honor the lost pets whose time ran out and bring awareness to the pets we can still help.
And by doing so, you can enter a cool contest that RememberMeThursday.org is having. Now through September 30, when you post a photo of your rescued or adopted pet on Twitter or Instagram and use both hashtags #RememberMeThursday and #RememberTheRescue, you could win $2000 for your favorite shelter or rescue. You can learn more about the contest HERE.
So c’mon! Let’s get the entire world talking about pet adoption and shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues right now! With all of our collective voices, we CAN make a difference!
*If anyone is interested in adopting Jordan, Comet or Kiana, please let us know!
