Remember me Thursday

Today is Remember me Thursday - a day to remember all of the pets who lost their lives because they didn't get forever homes.




 This excerpt is from the Remember Me Thursday site:

Animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations across the globe will unite on Thursday, September 26, 2013 (the fourth Thursday of September, annually) with a Remember Me Thursday pet candle-lighting ceremony. The candles, which will be lit on the exact same day across the world, will honor the millions of pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and shine a light on the millions of healthy pets who are still awaiting adoption. The Remember Me Thursday global awareness campaign encourages individuals to light a candle this day (literally or virtually) and to opt to adopt, reducing the millions of orphan pets euthanized each year.Light a Candle For a PetIf you can’t attend a pet candle lighting ceremony, light a virtual candle at our Memorial Candle Gallery and spread the word about Remember Me Thursday on Facebook,Twitter and other social media channels. Be sure to use #LIGHTFORPETS!


Here's a link to our candle.



We're purring and praying that one day all pets will have loving, forever homes.
Thanks to our pal Kjelle Bus for reminding us of this event.

What a lovely tribute to those that had to go to the bridge, so sad that all the furries needing a home cannot be adopted.
Thanks for stopping by the other day and helping me celebrate my Blogoversary!!

We don't know of any local events here, so we lit a virtual candle for all the pets. We hope that someday pets won't have to lose their lives waiting adoptions in the shelters.

We lit a virtual candle too - especially in honor of those like Maxwell who were considered less adoptable and euthanized because they may be differently-abled...whether it was blindness, deafness, loss of a leg, etc.
