#RememberMeThursday



Today is Remember Me Thursday set up by the Helen Woodward Animal Center to shine a worldwide light on orphan pets  waiting for their forever homes and for those who never made it out of the shelters to a home.

Angel Yoko

As most of you know, our kitties were formerly feral cats or strays that I rescued over the years.  Our Angel Yoko was the only one we adopted from the Naples FL Animal Control as a tiny kitten.  She was the light of our lives until she passed at the ripe old age of 20 in 2013.  She lives on in our hearts.


We are fortunate in our area to have  wonderful no kill shelters for homeless pets.  Brother Wolf Animal Rescue does tremendous work helping people find ways through their community outreach program to keep from surrendering their dogs and cats.

Senior Annie is available for adoption
 
Another no kill rescue, Boxer Butts and Other Mutts works mainly with shelter or rescued dogs in need of medical attention.  They provide care and love for however it long it takes to get them healthy enough to be adopted out.  Both groups have Facebook pages to keep you updated on the latest.

Duncan is available for adoption



On September 22, 2016, let’s get the entire world talking about pet adoption, so the world can shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues right now.  To remember your adopted pets, light a virtual candle  on the Remember Me Thursday web site here.

We are always amazed at how many cats you have taken such good care of at one time. Your furries are fortunate to have such a good home.

Happy Gotcha Day to Mamacita and Rosa.
