Just like previous years, I am again honored to announce the #RememberTheRescue Challenge.Not every pet is born into the lap of luxury. Pet adoption gives fluffy friends a chance to live a lavish life like moi! Be a dahhhling and do something pawsitively selfless for shelter pets on Remember Me Thursday.
Without crying and turning my bright blues red, I am going to tell you why this is so near and dear to moi. Each year, over 2.7 million orphan shelter pets lose their lives without ﬁnding their forever home and only 30% of pets in US households come from rescue facilities. That’s a lot of animals that will never get the chance to catnap in the sun or get tummy rubs from their own Daddy.
Now going into its sixth year, Remember Me Thursday aims to unite individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world to be an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets in need of forever homes.In the previous four years of the campaign, 180 countries supported the movement with hundreds of thousands of individuals and more than 700 separate animal welfare organizations around the globe holding candle-lighting ceremonies of their own, spreading the message on social media, visiting the Remember Me Thursday website, or lighting a virtual candle. Celebrities such as Diane Keaton, Carrie Ann Inaba, Katherine Heigl, Pauley Perrette and dozens more have used social media to share the opt to adopt message and save orphan pets. Now it’s your chance to spread the word using your social media presence. You call yourself an influencer so start influencing!
Today on September 27, lets mobilize the world to find a family for every pet who needs one. I will #RememberTheRescue on #RememberMeThursday and share my story to encourage others to help shelter pets find homes.Show me your rescue pets with #RememberTheRescue to shine a light on pet adoption.
