Next Thursday, September 28, Wells Valley Cat Sanctuary will host Remember Me Thursday, a candle lighting ceremony honoring pets who have died while waiting to be adopted. Candles will be lit all over the world in memory of these sweet souls that did not have the benefit of a loving home.

If you are like me, you would adopt every pet that does not have a home. Unfortunately, we all know that this is not a possibility. However, there are so many things that we can do to help animals that are in shelters. Wells Valley Cat Sanctuary in New Milford, CT, has luminaries for sale for $5.00 available at their website and also at all of their adoption events. Click here for more information.

Even if you cannot attend the ceremony, sharing this event through tweeting, tagging, posting using the hashtag #RememberTheRescue helps adoption organizations, like Wells Valley Cat Sanctuary, save lives and help pets waiting for their forever homes.
