Founded by the Helen Woodward Animal Center, the goal of Remember Me Thursday® is to get the entire world talking about pet adoption, and Allegra and I are helping to spread the word. The day is meant to remember and honor the 1+ million orphan pets who ran out of time, and to help people #SeeTheLight for the rescues that we can still help.

Changing just one mind can save a life.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Share photos of how you remember and shine a light on orphan pets with your own rescue cats.
  • Light a candle for orphan pets here.
  • Use hashtags #RememberMeThursday and #SeetheLight

Unite with millions of pet lovers around the world to shine a light on orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues for forever homes.

5 Comments on Remember Me Thursday: Help Others #SeeTheLight for Pet Adoption

  1. Great reminder! There are so many special cats waiting for a home, it’s sad to think some have been in shelters for such a long time. More people need to adopt instead of paying big money for pedigrees and sometimes those cats don’t turn out to be the greatest pets. Adopt and don’t Shop, Shop, Shop till you drop for a pet that might not turn out to be the animal of your dreams.

  2. Ingrid,

    Good article. Very true. Our cats came from shelters, or from cat colonies. Wish could adopt everyone of them!
