In honor of Remember Me Thursday, I thought I’d share some photos I’ve taken of shelter pets. If you’re not aware, Remember Me Thursday is the fourth Thursday of every September, and it’s meant to shine a light on orphan pets in shelters and rescues that are waiting for their forever homes. The goal is to get the whole world talking about shelter pets and pet adoption on social media!
Will you be shining a light today on shelter pets?
Shelter Cats and Dogs
Here are some of the photos I’ve taken over the years of shelter cats and dogs. I hope by now they’ve all found their forever homes.
And here’s a video of some bottle baby kittens at the shelter!
A Different Kind of Shelter Pet
Remember, not all shelter pets are cats and dogs. There are many other species waiting on a forever home of their own.
Helen Woodward Animal Center
Here are a few photos I took last year while touring the wonderful Helen Woodward Animal Center – the animal rescue group that created Remember Me Thursday.
Thank you for joining me on this photo tour of shelter pets. Let’s get the world talking about pet adoption today (and every day)!
We’re joining the Remember Me Thursday blog hop hosted by our friends at Lola the Rescued Cat. We hope you’ll join, too!
Buh-bye for now!

Spay and neuter, and RESCUE!
Thank you for using your powers for good!
We love this day and try to keep it going 365 days a year
What beautiful photos. Our mom hopes to visit Helen Woodward some day. Thanks for joining our hop and shining a light on pet adoption.
I tried to leave a comment on Lola’s page but cannot. I joined the hop but could not comment. Haven’t been able to leave comments on most blogs for months. Something to do with Google I guess. bummer
I hope they all found homes too. So adorable!
Thank you for this information–I wasn’t aware of Remember Me Thursday! What sweet photos. Beautiful beings they are, lets hope they’ve all found homes.
It’s hard to look at the pictures of shelter animals without feeling a pang and heart ache. When I’m at the shelter where I volunteer, I usually feel useful, happy, and grateful that there’s always something to do to make the cats more comfortable. I hope more people discover the joys of volunteering. Of course I really wish we didn’t need shelters…
I wish all of those sweeties would find their very own happy, that would make us all very happy.
thanks for helping shine the light
Perhaps it’s just me, but I think I saw some Chatty Cats among the shelter cats. As a rescue kitty, Remember Me Thursday is the most important day of the year.
Cathy… I thought I saw at least one too :)
What precious faces all of them so deserving of a forever home full of safety, food, love, shelter – all the things they need to THRIVE. Beautiful photos too – hopefully all of them no matter what “species” – are living their happily ever after now.
Such gorgeous photos! Y’know…a good photo can help get that pet adopted. We hope all these sweeties have forever homes now.
All gorgeous photos with my fingers crossed… I’m hoping they are all in FURever homes too… but… I’m pretty sure at least one of them is in a GREAT home???
Such precious babies! This is one of the most important days of the year for us as animal advocates
Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. That video of bottle feeding the kittens is just so sweet. Hope your having a wonderful day. We just love this post so much.
Aww these were just great. Thanks for reminding us that shelter pets aren’t always cats and dogs. I never stopped to think about horses and donkeys. Thank you!!!
What beautiful photos of ALL the animals! We also wonder, years later, when thinking back of the cats in the cages next to Scout, or Mr. Jack or George – whether they were adopted. I hope they were!
We sure hope all those beautiful animals found their happily ever afters. Thank you for sharing, and for your Remember Me Thursday post.
