Remember Me


Created to shed a light and light a candle for the MILLIONS of companion animals that lose their lives every year in shelters.....not for behavior issues or medical issues....for lack of homes. That's it - lack of space and adoptions.

We hope some day that companion animals stand a better chance in what is called a "shelter" system. We hope one day that #AdoptDontShop will be a phrase that is truly understood and utilized by everyone out there seeking a pet. We hope one day shelter workers won't have to bear the burden of killing thousands of animals as part of their job....and know that we will never blame the people have to do that job - blame the system or whatever, but not those that have to do it every day to stay employed.

Don't get us wrong - we know there are people who prefer specific breeds and there are responsible breeders. But there are also people who still believe that pets "need" to have a litter before being spayed. There are people that think it is "unmanly" to neuter their dogs. There are people breeding animals for money, not to further the breed.

This is about raising awareness about lives lost in a system that should be saving them....


  1. I could never have a pet who wasn't a rescue in some form or another. There are certainly plenty for a person to choose from in shelters and rescue-groups.

  2. Wonderful post for that special day. Purrs

  3. So well said. It breaks our hearts whenever we here of a life lost due to "lack of space" in a shelter or other non-medical reason. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. My human is galled that there are still people out there who think their animals need to have a litter! She didn't exactly grow up with the most forward-thinking parents, but even they had their cats spayed and neutered right away. None of this "just one litter" thing. I purr for a day when all pets are wanted.

  5. it always hurts me when I hear people blaming the shelter for the deaths.. I mean deep down in the gut hurts.. and I've never been a shelter worker.. I wish people would start getting it..

    1. agreed.....I've worked as an adoption counselor and that was hard enough. Don't blame the people....blame a broken system

  6. Gweat posty. We wish there was no need fur shelters cuz all da kitties out there had a pawsum home.

    Luv ya'

  9. It would be nice if all animals had a home.

  10. So well said. Education is a key component to helping get animal homelessness under control.

  11. We purr for all the kitties in the shelters.

  12. You put that beautifully. We're saying an extra prayer tonight for all the kitties in shelters and on the streets.
