Save the Date! Remember Me Thursday® is 9-27-18 (And We Have an Announcement!)


Hello, and Happy Thursday Purrsday! I have some very exciting news to share with you today that will definitely make you purr! But first, get your calendars out so you can save the date for a very important event. Ready with your pencils? Okay, the date is Thursday, September 27, 2018, and the event is… Remember Me Thursday

This is the third year that we’ve been participating in Remember Me Thursday, and we’re honored to be partnering with Helen Woodward Animal Center once again.

What is Remember Me Thursday?

In case you’re not familiar with this movement, let me tell you a little about it. 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 orphaned pets in need of forever homes. As you know, our motto here at Lola The Rescued Cat is Adopt Don’t Shop! "My heart breaks for those beautiful people working in animal welfare who are forced to take the lives of the pets they love" states Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center, on why he created Remember Me Thursday. “I believe lighting a candle for the orphan pets will be a way for people to let the world know how much they love them, and the awareness can help in increasing adoptions and decreasing euthanasia.” 

Last year nearly 330 million people used the #RememberMeThursday hashtag on social media. This year we’re helping the folks at Helen Woodward spread the word to increase that number and bring even more awareness to orphaned pets. Together, all of our voices can be one BIG voice for animals that can be heard around the world!

#RememberMeThursday Contest

As you know, Lexy and I are former shelter cats. Lexy was lucky to be in a wonderful shelter where she could have lived forever is she needed to. Me… I wasn’t so lucky. Animals could not live where I was forever, and many were euthanized for various reasons. We often say thank you to the shelter that saved Lexy, and now you can do the same for the shelter that rescued your best friend. 

Helen Woodward Animal Center is sponsoring an exciting contest for Remember Me Thursday, and there are three ways to enter. All you have to do is take a photo of your pet and then do one of the following: 
  • Post the photo on Instagram with #RememberMeThursday and @hwac.
  • Post the photo on Twitter with #RememberMeThursday and @hwac.
  • Upload the photo on the website at remembermethursday.org/contest.



Easy peasy! The contest is open now and runs through September 28, 2018.

  9. That is such an important day. My boys weren't adopted from a shelter, but we got them from a farm where kittens rarely reached maturity. Most either got run over by farm vehicles, savaged by dogs or attacked by visiting tom cats. Thankfully they no longer have cats there.
    I accidentally deleted your comment on my post when I was moderating it. I hit delete instead of publish. I have copy and pasted the email notification so it is there but under Eric and Flynn's name, but yours in the comment.

  18. I'm definitely going to do my part this year by writing a post to highlight Remember Me Thursday. It makes me so sad every time I meet someone who bought a dog or cat, and sometimes when I'm feeling particularly annoyed I make a comment like "it's too bad you could have saved a life."
