See the Light with Remember Me Thursday

The day to shine a light on shelter and rescue pets, known as Remember Me Thursday, is taking place this week on – you guessed it – Thursday! So, letโ€™s come together and light up social media on September 24th in honor of homeless pets everywhere.

The Goal

It’s simple. Let’s get the world talking about pet adoption! And while doing so, shine a light on homeless pets in shelters and rescues waiting for their forever homes.

How You Can Help

Light up social media on Thursday, September 24th with posts about Remember Me Thursday. Share your rescue pet on Instagram or tweet about your favorite rescue organization – no matter where or what you choose to share, be sure to use the hashtags #SeeTheLight and #RememberMeThursday.

Enter the Contest

Also, be sure to visit the Remember Me Thursday contest page to see how you can submit your rescue pet’s story and have a chance at winning money and prizes for your favorite shelter or rescue. First place gets $5,000 for their favorite organization!

Our Former Shelter Cats

Dexter, Olive and Sophie all found their way to us as stray kittens. But Woodrow and Harley spent time in and out of shelters (both being adopted and returned to the shelter before ending up with us). So, they’re eager to help everyone #SeeTheLight and they hope you all will participate in Remember Me Thursday!

So, together on September 24th, letโ€™s light up social media to find shelter pets (like Woodrow and Harley) their forever homes!

Remember Me Thursday was created by Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center.

  1. We hope that everyone remembers that when you need a REAL friend, there is one (or more!) waiting for you at your local shelter. Everyone deserves a forever home – and that’s the place to find someone looking for one.
