Join the Remember Me Thursday® Awareness Movement
Remember Me Thursday® is a global awareness campaign uniting individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world as an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets to live in forever homes, not die waiting for them.
On September 28, 2017, the entire world will share the importance of pet adoption and shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues. In 2016, people using #RememberTheRescue and #RememberMeThursday reached nearly 340 million people on social media.
Can we get even more people sharing the importance of pet adoption in 2017?
It’s up to you to spread the word.

Meet Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center, and creator of both the International Pet Adoptathon and the Home 4 The Holidays program which, in partnership with international animal organizations, has placed over 13 million pets in homes since 1999.
Mike Arms, on why he created Remember Me Thursday, “My heart breaks for those beautiful people working in animal welfare who are forced to take the lives of the pets they love. I believe lighting a candle for the orphan pets will be a way for people to let the world know how much they love them, and the awareness can help in increasing adoptions and decreasing euthanasia.”
Angel and Chuck came to us via informal adoption, meaning we removed them from the home where their mother was unspayed and had had multiple litters of unwanted kittens. Our kittens were spayed and neutered just as soon as they were old enough. And since then, I have become active with TNR, as a result of stray cats appearing in our backyard, and in my office parking lot.
Spay and neuter your pets!
