Remember Me Thursday
Uniting the World for Orphan Pets

Now going into its eighth year, Remember Me Thursday aims to unite individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world to be an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets in need of forever homes.

“Over a million beautiful, adoptable pets will lose their lives in 2020,” states Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center. “We all come from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds, but together, we can raise our voices and share one life-saving message and literally save millions of pets on this one day.”

In the previous six years of the campaign, over 190 countries supported the movement with hundreds of thousands of individuals and more than 700 separate animal welfare organizations around the globe holding candle-lighting ceremonies of their own, spreading the message on social media, visiting the Remember Me Thursday website, or lighting a virtual candle. Celebrities such as Diane Keaton, Kristin Chenoweth, George Lopez, Katherine Heigl, Bethenny Frankel and dozens more have used social media to share the “opt to adopt” message and save orphan pets. Over the years, pet influencers such as Lil Bub, Cole & Marmalade, and Tuna Melts My Heart also joined the cause.
