Remember Me Thursday

Spread the love

What is so special about this day.


It is a day when the world will share and discuss the importance of pet adoption, and shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues. 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.

I joined in today with the International Zoom Meeting held by the Helen Woodward Animal Centre, it was fantastic and so wonderful hearing stories from different rescues organizations in different countries.

During the pandemic and lockdown so many people adopted dogs from shelters and now that life is going back to normal they are dumping the dogs back at the shelters so unfortunately the shelters are over loaded with dogs, rescuers are doing their best to save them all but they are desperate for fosters to help.


Those orphan pets in the shelters need homes, 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 a life.

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

  1. Adopt and open your house to an orphan pet
  2. 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.

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.

So let’s all get together 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. I can’t believe I missed this day but fully on board with adopting from shelters and rescues 100%. Thanks for spreading the word and informing us all Layla! We rescue them and they (pets) rescue us right back. I cannot imagine my life journey without rescues. They truly help turn a house into a home.

  2. My heart aches thinking of all the displaced pets resulting from Covid (no more time for pets and the mayhem in NSW, Australia shelters) and what is happening in Syria. I’m a bit late but will keep a candle lit this weekend.

    • Thank you for lighting a candle Sadie and my heart breaks all the time with what is happening all over the world when it comes to the displaced pets, humans are really cruel

  3. It really stinks that so many people are dumping their dogs back into shelters. My heart breaks for those dogs. All of my cats have been adopted. I don’t really understand the stigma against adopting pets. My kitties have all been wonderful.

  4. I really wish that people had to do some sort of psyche test, background check, or both to be able to own an animal of any sort. It breaks my heart that people are dumping their pandemic pets. In my neighborhood, I’m trying to rescue three gelding horses that were dumped. They are not wild. They are released because the owners had issues of some sort. I love the idea of Remember Me Thursday. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

    • Terri, thank you for trying to rescue the geldings, every animal needs a home and not to be dumped in shelters. I so agree with you that people before adopting should be checked thoroughly plus sign a form saying they will not dump the pet or they will face consequences.
      Remember Me Thursday is such an important date on my calendar.

  5. Adoptions are the aim and Remember Me Thursday is the game. We need to spay and neuter our pets to avoid the tragedy shelters and make every pet a LOVED pet.

    • Marjorie you have hit the nail on the head, all pets should be spayed and neutered to prevent the over population that there is as shelters are overflowing and the animals are suffering.
