On Remember Me Thursday: My Opt-to-Adopt Message

Today, on Remember Me Thursday, many of us are lighting a candle to honor the adoptable pets around the world who never got their chance with loving, forever families.

Some of us with adopted pets are also sharing our opt-to-adopt stories and messages to inspire others to consider pet adoption.

This picture is of my adopted dog who passed away last year, after giving us nine incredible years together. We adopted Cleo from the San Francisco SPCA when she was already about 3-4 years old.

My husband and I were hoping to find us a buddy, a dog to hang out with and to take to the park. We got so much more!

If you are considering a new addition to your family, I encourage you to adopt! You just might find a new best friend.
