Remember Me Thursday: Pet Adoption Awareness Campaign

Official ‘Remember Me Thursday’ video featuring “I Was Here” by Kristin Chenoweth

Remember Me Thursday asks animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations across the globe to light a candle – literally or virtually – on the exact same day, September 26th, to honor the millions of pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and to shine a light on those still waiting to be adopted.

In only weeks, endorsement of the program has arrived in the form of over one hundred scheduled candle-lighting ceremonies, high-profile celebrity social media postings, and much more. The campaign was founded by Mike Arms, President of Helen Woodward Animal Center, here in Southern California.

Plan a candle-lighting ceremony with your local pet adoption organization to promote pet adoption. Please spread the word; post, tweet, or hit one of the many share buttons I have below. Help honor those lives lost without a loving family by their side and the millions of pets needing a home, waiting to be adopted.
