Help Others #SeeTheLight for Rescues on Remember Me Thursday (9/24/2020)

Happy Thursday Purrsday! Lexy and I are purring today because we are excited to be partnering again this year with Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) to host our annual Blog Hop for Remember Me Thursday. 

As former shelter cats who were once forgotten, the Remember Me Thursday movement is very important to us, and we are always proud to shine the light on shelter pets who are waiting for their forever homes. 




Get Your Content Ready! 

Every year HWAC sends out a very cool kit to bloggers with swag that can be used in their posts.

Our mom had a Zoom meeting with Miss Christina and Miss Jackie of HWAC and as of September 3rd, 23 bloggers were confirmed to participate. (And more bloggers have been reaching out to them for kits. That's just pawtastic!) This year HWAC also reached out to other social media influencers and 19 confirmed their participation.

Let's meow about content. We all know many rescued pets have a sad story. I mean, just look at mine! But this year let's all put a different spin on it so people can really #SeeTheLight about shelter pets. Here are a few ideas to write about: 

  • The joy your adopted pet brings you. 
  • The gratitude an adopted pet shows for being saved.
  • How your adopted pet shows you love every day. 
  • Why adopting a pet is good for you! (That's a great blog post topic!)

Let's all inspire others to run out to their local shelter and find the new love of their life. This is such a great way to create to save lives!

Social Media Resources

The folks at HWAC have put together some fab resources we can all use on social media. There are twitter graphics, printable signs, and some cute photo frames.

We are proudly displaying that this is our fifth year participating! Shining a light on pet adoption is something that is very important to all of us here at Lola The Rescued Cat.

A Few Facts

We have a few interesting facts we'd like to share with you: 

  •  In 2017 the hashtag #RememberMeThursday reached nearly 330 million people on social media! Imagine how many can be reached this year. 
  • The folks at Helen Woodward Animal Center have been working very hard during the pandemic so people can still see the light about shelter pets. They have had applications from 1,000's of people wanting to foster pets. 
  • From 3/19/20 through 9/1/20 they helped 680 cats and 1,111 dogs find their forever homes. That's a total of 1,791 adoptions! That's 1,791 former shelter pets lighting up the lives of their new families. 
Helen Woodward Animal Center believes that "changing just one mind can save a life", and we couldn't agree more. When we wrote our book we said if we could encourage just one person to adopt a cat from a shelter our mission would be accomplished. Well, you can imagine how over the moon happy we were when someone told us they did just that - and they named their new cat Lola. 

We can't wait to see what you create to help others #SeeTheLight for shelter pets waiting for their forever homes. And we hope you'll be hopping with us on September 24th!
