Once again this year we will “shine a light on orphan pets waiting for forever homes.” September 28 is Remember Me Thursday, and everyone is encouraged to light up social media raising awareness of all the pets in shelters and rescues waiting for their forever homes. The goal is for everyone who uses social media that day to see a post about the importance of adopting pets.
Disclosure: We received the items seen here to help us spread the word about Remember Me Thursday, but were in no other way compensated. Wag ‘n Woof Pets only shares about products/events we feel will be of interest to our readers, and all opinions are our own.
The Helen Woodward Animal Center started this day five years ago, and invited us to help spread the word once again this year. We are happy to be part of a global movement uniting individuals and pet adoption organizations in being a voice for homeless pets. They kindly sent us a kit to help us with this task, and the photos below show the goodies that were included in our box!
We will use the signs and candle seen above to share our own rescued Labrador retriever mix, Luke, and we are both proud to be sporting the gear they sent us, that we are seen wearing below!
Everyone can help by posting photos and stories of their own adopted/rescued pet or pets on social media, and at the same time also nominate your favorite adoption organization to win prizes!
You can enter by posting a photo of your rescue pet to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #RememberMeThursday and #RemembertheRescue, or by uploading a photo of your rescue pet directly to the contest website. The contest runs from September 1st – 30th.
There will be three cash prizes ($5,000, $2,500, and $1,000) for shelters or rescues as well as 1,000 pounds of dog food and 100 toys from Kong to each winner!
We will be reminding you about #RememberMeThursday before it gets here, so you can participate in spreading the word by lighting up social media for homeless pets. We hope you’ll be joining us! Please visit the Remember Me Thursday website to learn more.
