Remember me Thursday

Today we turn our thoughts to cherish and remember all the dogs that unfortunately didn’t make it out of shelters,

but we also want to celebrate all those that found forever homes – thanks to the many charities around the world that work tirelessly to find strays, abandoned dogs in so many societies around the world.

Today is for you little George, thanks to Hungary Hearts Dog Rescue you were rescued from the streets of Hungary

Found in a Killing Station – on death row.

and found your way to us.

Soon after George’s arrival.

Last week we celebrated your Gotcha Day Little George,

18 September was the day you came into our home.

but I think you got me.

May’s comment: Orphan pets should live in forever homes, not die waiting for them. Today on Thursday, September 26, 2019, we collectively talk about pet adoption so the world can shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues right now. (Remember Me Thursday)

Remember Me Thursday® is a global awareness campaign uniting individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world as an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets to live in forever homes, not die waiting for them.

Since it began in 2013, Remember Me Thursday® has made more than 1 billion impressions on social media. And we want to continue to reach people out there who are thinking of getting a dog – to look into shelters and rescue centres – to give those dogs a chance at life they deserve.

You can download the song “This Candle Burns Bright” by Stevie Woodward from iTunes – in remembrance of those who died waiting and in remembrance of those who are still in shelters.

Hungary Hearts Dog Rescue is a UK charity, founded in 2012.

Their aim is to find loving homes for abandoned and neglected dogs on death-row in Hungary. Hungary Hearts Dog Rescue was born out of love for ALL dogs no matter their shape or size with people who want to make a difference all around the world. Dogs don’t understand borders, neither do we.

Hungary Hearts Dog Rescue is one of the many charities that are dedicated to finding forever homes for dogs in shelters. Because of them, we have George.

George has brought so much love and joy to everyone who have met him. And there are a lot of Georges in shelters.

We also support Dogs Trust who has a no kill policy. We sponsor one of their dogs that will never be able to be re-homed because of issues inflicted on them. These dogs live out the rest of their lives in a well cared for environment and they interact only with humans who are there to take care of them, giving them the love and help that they need.

    It is such a sad story but thanks to you and of course Darcy, George has a wonderful life just as every dog deserves


    Thank goodness you and Darcy rescued George, it’s such a sad photo of him in the cage, he is such a special little soul. I love the photo of you holding him, where he is looking over your shoulder. Do you know what type of breed he is May, not that it matters, he is an original whatever his background. I was talking to a friend who was telling me about the ‘Happy Bus’, with lots of dogs due to arrive in England yesterday. They all have homes here now which is wonderful. My friend is a collection point in Nottingham, for people who are donating shoe boxes filled with presents for these dogs who are arriving here. I hope your foot is healing well May, cheerio for now. xxx
