You guys! Today is Remember Me Thursday®…a day to inspire others to SEE THE LIGHT for pet adoption. Started in 2013 by the Helen Woodward Animal Center, Remember Me Thursday® is a world-wide event to get the entire world talking about the importance of pet adoption.
I AM A RESCUED CAT. That’s right. I ended up in a shelter when the first people that had me couldn’t keep me because their landlord didn’t allow pets. I know what it’s like to be stuck in a cage. Lemme tell you, it’s no fun. It’s cold, lonely…and really scary. You don’t know if you’re ever gonna get out of there. Oh sure, it’s better than being on the streets because there’s food and water available, but it’s nothing like having a forever home.
I’m one of the lucky ones…I was rescued. Though I spent over a month in the shelter before I made it out and into my wonderful home. But there are so many wonderful animals not as lucky as me. They sit in shelters waiting and waiting for their forever homes…and some sadly never make it out.
Right now, many shelters and rescues are filled to capacity. Some are turning away animals because they just can’t take one more in.
So how can you help these poor animals waiting in shelters and rescues, and get people to see the light for pet adoption? Adopting a shelter or rescue pet would be the best way. Though I know that’s not something everyone can do. But you can be a part of the Remember Me Thursday® Awareness Movement, and spread the word about the importance of pet adoption.
Today, tweet, tag, post and share on social media the life-saving significance of pet adoption. Let everyone know how important pet adoption is. Y’know…changing just one mind can save a life.
Did you adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue? Share their photo and adoption story on Facebook, X (formerly Twitter) or Instagram. Their story may inspire others to see the light about the importance of pet adoption. Make sure to use the hashtags #RememberMeThursday and #SeeTheLight.
You can also enter the fun Remember Me Thursday® contest and win one of 3 fabulous prize packages that include cash, food and toys for your favorite shelter or rescue. Details about how to enter can be found on the Remember Me Thursday® contest page.
Let’s get the whole world talking about pet adoption and help others see the light about how important it is. Let’s honor the lost ones whose time ran out and bring awareness to those we can still help. Let’s make pet adoption from a shelter or rescue the FIRST option!
