Remember Me Thursday - Pet Adoption Awareness CampaignI love my dogs, more than I can express. When I see shelter and stray animals, I want to help them all. They Deserve to be cared for and loved. If I see animal in harms way I will stop and help. Everyone one should. My Motto is :
Be The Change. You Can Make A Difference.
Remember Me Thursday is a pet adoption awareness campaign. Start here and make a difference. Join others that have made a difference like Everything Rosie. Special needs animals especially are dependent on humans. I am and have been Guardian to many special needs dogs. My blog is dedicated to Sophie, a very special dog. I love them even more and their devotion is beyond measure.
Raise awareness. Pray for the lost and help make the present and future a better place.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. The time is always right to do what is right." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
What is “Remember Me Thursday – Light a Candle for a Pet”? From the website for the event:
“Animal lovers and organizations across the globe unite on the fourth Thursday of September to light a candle in remembrance of the millions of orphan pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and to shine a light on the millions of orphan pets still waiting for their forever homes.”
“Millions of shelter pets lose their lives each and every year. Join the awareness campaign – be a light for pets by promoting awareness about pet adoption. By remembering those we have lost, we can shine a light on the ones we can save.”
Helen Woodward Animal Center is uniting with animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations globally in a Remember Me Thursday candle-lighting ceremony. The candles, lit on the exact same day across the world, will honor the millions of pets who lost their lives over the past year without the benefit of a loving home.

Remember Me Thursday
By Mike Arms
Remember the day that we first met?
You said you loved me and I was your pet.
Remember how you played with me,
And promised together we'd always be?
But later, when you moved away,
You decided we could no longer play.
You dropped me off at a strange new place,
Although I cried, and licked your face.
Gentle hands took me from your sight,
But no one was with me through the dark night.
I remember I stayed in a small place for days,
And no one had time for my playful ways.
I remember when they said it was time to go,
I remembered your face...and wished it would show.
I will leave this world -- but, please, remember --
And light a candle, this Thursday in September.
