Uniting the World for Orphan Pets

We are joining Remember Me Thursday® and have lit a candle at for our sweet Swizzle. Swizzle is the kitty we continue to sponsors at PAWS of Connecticut. She’s been waiting for more than a year for her new forever home.

Candles lit on this day (the fourth Thursday of September annually) across the world honor the pets who lose their lives without the opportunity to know the comforts of a loving home. These candles shine brightly on the millions of healthy pets who are still awaiting adoption—just like beautiful Swizzle.

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.

Our four rescued cats, Astrid, Lily Olivia, Lisbeth and Calista Jo invite you to join us, other pet-lovers and advocates and animal welfare organizations around the world in lighting your own candle. Visit the link listed in the first paragraph to light your candle and learn more about Remember Me Thursday®. Or light your own candle at home. Just make certain it is either battery operated or in an area your pets cannot access.
