Light a candle Thursday in honor of pets who died without homes

The Remember Me Thursday candle-lighting campaign takes place Thursday, Sept. 25, worldwide.

Helen Woodward Animal Center, in partnership with Blue Buffalo and Embrace Pet Insurance, is uniting with animal lovers and animal welfare organizations worldwide to light candles in memory of the millions of pets who lost their lives over the past year without the benefit of a loving home, and draw attention to the fact that millions more are still in need of permanent homes.

Community members are invited to attend a candle-lighting ceremony at their local shelter, or assist with organizing one; light a virtual candle online at www.remembermethursday.org; change their Facebook profile pictures to the Remember Me Thursday icon all day on Sept. 25; and spread the word about Remember Me Thursday on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels using #LIGHTFORPETS.
