Remember Me Thursday®: Light Up the World for Orphan Pets


Changing just one mind can save a life.

Founded by the Helen Woodward Animal Center, the goal of Remember Me Thursday® is to get the entire world talking about pet adoption. The day is meant to remember and honor the 1+ million orphan pets who ran out of time, and to help people #SeeTheLight for the rescues that we can still help.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Share photos of how you remember and shine a light on orphan pets with your own rescue cats.
  • Light a candle for orphan pets here.
  • Use hashtags #RememberMeThursday and #SeetheLight

Unite with millions of pet lovers around the world to shine a light on orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues for forever homes.
