Remember Me Thursday, A Day to Celebrate Rescue Pets

Remember Me Thursday falls on September 24. This is the day we honor rescue pets and encourage pet adoption. Last year, I posted the adoption story of my cats, Harry and Hermione, from  the Golden Paw Society Rescue. You can read it here. This year, I recommend Second-Chance Cats: True Stories of the Cats We Rescue and the Cats Who Rescue Us. Harry and Hermione’s story was published in this book along with that of other rescue cats.

There are many ways to get involved in this special day.

1. Post on social media using #SeeTheLight and #RememberMeThursday.

On September 24, let’s make sure everyone who opens their social media accounts sees a message about pet adoption! Encourage your fans to post by sharing your personal rescue story or one of our ready-made graphics. Here are a few to get you started!
