Remember Me Thursday

Spread the love

Good Morning friends,

Today is a very important day so without hesitation we decided that our blog should be up today and not tomorrow as it is Remember Me Thursday.

I have always rescued, and only believe in rescuing and that is why this day is extra special for me.

On this day the world will share and discuss the importance of pet adoption, and shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues to be adopted . We all come from different countries, religions but one thing we all have in common is the fate of the pets in shelters so we need to be their voice as they do not have one.

Those orphan pets in the shelters need homes, they want a warm bed to sleep in, good food, toys but most of all they want to be loved by humans so every time one is adopted you are saving two lives, the pet and yours.

We can help by spreading the word, changing the minds of people to open their hearts also :

01. Adopt and open your house to an orphan pet

02. Go to Remember Me Thursday Events in your area

PLUS I think the most important of all is to show everyone all over the world that adoption is the only way to go as the adopted/rescued pets deserve a second chance.

We want to say a special thanks to Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center, for creating this day to draw the attention of the orphaned pets sitting in shelters and by lighting a candle will draw people to their fate of euthanasia.  Thank you Helen Woodward Animal Center for permitting me to share this poem by Mike Arms.

Thank you for allowing me to share this poem

So let’s all get together, light a candle and save the shelter pets and give them the good life they deserve,

Thank you with love from

Layla   (my rescue from a shelter)

  1. You are so right, this is indeed a very special day. Adoptions are just the best and here’s to many, many more…and then some! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. What a lovely post for #RemembermeThursday. I know I can’t consider ever “buying” a pet. Adopting from a shelter or rescue is the only way for me. Layla is such a gift!

    • Michelle I understand and neither am I ready to add another but reminding others on this day is important, thank you for helping throughout the year it is much appreciated.

  3. I think that part of the problem still is low awareness of how many dogs are in need of forever homes and how wonderful companions they can make. I’m sure that if people got to meet them, they would fall in love. I think that’s the way to bridge the gap.

  4. Thanks for spreading the word! I volunteer at an animal shelter every weekend in the cattery. Nearly everyone who comes to adopt gets a puppy. We have to send our kitties to area pet stores in order to get them adopted. Makes me so mad!

  5. This really is an important topic that we need to talk about more often! Thousands of animals are sitting in recues and shelters around the globe waiting for their forever home – unsure of why they are there or what they did to ‘deserve it’. All 4 of our current pets were adopted and I would have it no other way! They have so much love to give…

    • Britt it is an important topic and that is why I speak out whenever possible as they do not deserve to be in shelters because of humans selfishness. There is nothing like a rescue

  6. Rescue pets make awesome companions! I’m encouraged that the euthanasia rate has gone down significantly in the United States, but we still have a long ways to go.

  7. I love that poem. I hope with more of us participating in #RememberMeThursday, we can help more homeless pets, and one day – maybe there the shelters will all be empty because there will be no more pets without loving homes. <3 PS – did you know there is a blog hop you can join for #RememerMeThursday?
