Animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations across the globe will unite on Highlighted Facebook Announcement_DOGThursday, September 26, 2013 (the fourth Thursday of September, annually) with a Remember Me Thursday pet candle-lighting ceremony. The candles, which will be 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.

Light a Candle For a Pet

If you can’t attend a pet candle lighting ceremony, light a virtual candle at our Memorial Candle Gallery and spread the word about Remember Me Thursday on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels. Be sure to use #LIGHTFORPETS!
