Be a Part of the Remember Me Thursday®Awareness Movement
Unite with pet-lovers and animal welfare organizations around the globe on Thursday, September 24, 2015 (the fourth Thursday of September, annually) , with a worldwide pet candle-lighting ceremony.
The candles, lit on the exact same day across the world, honor the millions of pets who lose their lives without the beneﬁt of a loving home and shine a light on the millions of healthy pets who are still awaiting adoption.
The Remember Me Thursday® global awareness campaign encourages individuals to light a candle this day (literally or virtually) and to opt to adopt, reducing the millions of orphan pets euthanized each year. - end quote.
I took a few minutes and did a small vignette comprised of a photo, a faux flickering candle, our Pepper's ashes, and one of his beloved tennis balls that he used to chew apart - something he never tired of, lol. My daughter and I offered up a wee chewy treat and chatted up about a few happy memories of that handsome, mischevious dog. I like this - quiet, treasured moments.
I know many of us carry around wishes that the world would correct itself knowing that the need to adopt out animals is not considered a priority to some, but then there are true angelic people like Eugene - described as:
