Remember Me Thursday

Join the Pet Awareness Campaign That Promotes Pet Adoption

Remember Me Thursday™ is a worldwide coalition of pet adoption organizations, celebrities and people like you, who raise awareness about the plight of millions of orphan pets around the world waiting for forever homes.

By lighting a candle on Remember Me Thursday, September 25, 2014, you are remembering those pets who have lost their lives but you are also shining a light on orphan pets in need of homes right now.

Light Up the World For Orphan Pets

Learn how you can light up the world for orphan pets as an organization or as an everyday animal lover. They need YOUR voice - let’s extinguish pet euthanasia together!

Thank you to all our Remember Me Thursday™ participating organizations! Countries from as far away as Australia and Japan are lighting candles and raising awareness for the orphan pets in their communities. Be sure to connect with our Remember Me Thursday™ Luminaries - a special set of celebrities who pledge to shine a light on the plight of orphan pets on September 25.


Did you know owning a pet improves your health and increases your life span? Owning a pet reduces depression, encourages exercise, and lowers blood pressure. People who own pets make fewer doctor visits. Heart attack patients have been proven to survive longer with a pet. 

We now offer a senior wellness package. Did you know your 7 year old pet is considered a senior. With our package, we do a complete exam and bloodwork to screen for any underlying issues. If anything is found, we offer 15% off of any additional diagnostics. Give us call and schedule your pets senior visit today!
