Enter the #RememberTheRescue Contest That Helps Orphan Pets

From Remember Me Thursday creator and Helen Woodward Animal Center CEO, Mike Arms, "Unnecessary euthanasia of pets has to stop. And the only way it's going to stop is showing the public that we, collectively, can do something to make a difference."



While Cody WAS adopted, he was luckier than many other cats. He had an incredible foster Mother who loved and nurtured him, and helped influence the loving cuddle bug that he is today. Millions of other animals aren't as lucky as Cody was. Many are waiting in shelters for days, months, years and even their entire lives, to find their forever homes, and MANY NEVER DO.  Now, after the devastating hurricanes in Texas and Florida, even MORE ANIMALS are going to be faced with the prospect of dying in shelters!!  Remember Me Thursday® is right around  the corner! It's time to start preparing!!

  3. Cody you and I were lucky and I wish every homeless kitty and pup could be as lucky as we were. Shelters and rescues are amazing places and if not for them - we might not even be here.

    Love, Teddy

  8. Sounds great. I already put my adopted cat's story out on my one blog, do I have to rewrite it and where do I put it? I really like this idea.

  14. It boggles my mind that I happened to cross paths with a tiny, homeless, 8 month old kitten ... and he's proceeded to change and transform my life entirely. So many people would've considered him a nuisance. But that first time we met - I think we both saw something in the other that we didn't realize we had. What a gift. Love truly performs miracles. As much as people have told me how lucky Bear was that I took him in ... I owe him my life. My heart still melts when I think of the kitten wrapping his paws around my arm and pulling my hand toward his belly because he wanted belly rubs and I was too scared to try on my own.

  16. I took Avery off the streets, and not from a shelter, but I think it sounds like he qualifies. Will definitely tweet out with the hashtag! :) This is such a great contest.

  17. I have to confess ... none of my cats are from a shelter.

    1. neither of my cats were either. Bobo was found on the street (under a car in my apartment parking lot in a blizzard, after I saw him jump over our fence 6 hours earlier)..........Cody had a foster mom.....

  24. Thank you for sharing this. I hope more people will be willing to open their hearts and adopt some of these poor, abandoned pets that were left behind during the hurricanes. Truly heartbreaking.

  25. We're participating! We did a whole post on why we write to save lives! We just love this day.

  26. With two hurricanes already gone through, and possibly more to come (let's hope not though!), I think the timing of Remember Me Thursday is going to be perfect. As you said, there is even more need now due to so many more animals in shelters. I hope they can be reunited with their families but if not, that they can go to happy new homes.

  27. All of my kitties have been rescue kitties, whether we got them from the pound or whether they wandered in and adopted us. Highly recommend adopting.
