“Pets give you unconditional love. I think it’s more intense with a rescue. Animals know and they understand instinctively when you’ve saved them from a situation or brought them into a loving environment. They know, and they give you that love back. By supporting Remember Me Thursday®, pet lovers are increasing awareness of the importance of rescuing pets.”
