If you’ve visited the Daily Dog Tag before, you probably know to expect great photos and awesome dogs. Hopefully, you know that we love rescue dogs!
During the BlogPaws conference last spring, I had the chance to learn about Remember Me Thursday. Created by the Helen Woodward Animal Center, this event shines a light on pet adoption and to remember all the pets who didn’t make it out of the shelters.
There is a super easy way that you can help homeless pets by entering the Remember the Rescue contest.
My dog, Theo, is a rescue. It is clear he was well fed and well loved before he became ours. I can only imagine how heartbreaking it was to take him to the shelter, but I am so thankful he is ours now. He waited close to a month in the shelter for us to find him. No one else was interested in him. I shudder to think what might have happened to him if he wasn’t in a no-kill shelter.
If for some reason, you find yourself unable to take care of your pet, please contact a no-kill shelter or rescue group to take him or her.
The Helen Woodward Animal Center has some great adoptable dogs as well as puppies If you aren’t looking to add another family member or foster, please help shine a light on pets who are waiting for a home!
This is Balboa! He is a goofy and happy-go-lucky guy!
Balboa is a Lab mix approximately two and a half years old.
Cooper is a Keeper! This Shepherd blend has everything you could want in a best friend. Cooper is a 5-year old, active guy who also has a laid-back side. He’s just as comfortable on the trail as he is napping away the afternoon. He’s a smart guy and already knows several commands including sit, shake, and stay. What a guy!
If Hurricane Harvey has a silver lining, it might be that some pets were evacuated and brought to shelters where they have a better chance to be adopted. In some areas, even cute little puppies aren’t adopted out in time.
This cutie, Troy, is a Chihuahua mix and is about three months old. He is currently available for adoption.
How will you help shine a light on pet adoption on September 28th? Please enter the #RemembertheRescue challenge!
