Light a Candle

Remember Me Thursday, September 28, 2017


Animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations across the globe will unite on Thursday, September 28, 2017 (the fourth Thursday of September, annually) with a Remember Me Thursday™ pet candle-lighting ceremony. The candles, lit on the exact same day across the world, will honor the millions of pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and shine a light on the millions of healthy pets who are still awaiting adoption. The Remember Me Thursday global awareness campaign encourages individuals to light a candle this day (literally or virtually) and to opt to adopt, reducing the millions of orphan pets euthanized each year.

By lighting a candle on Remember Me Thursday, September 28, 2017, you are remembering those pets that have lost their lives but you are also shining a light on orphan pets in need of homes right now.
