Remember Me Thursday Sept 2015 single candle

Shining a light on those who never found their forever homes

On Thursday, September 25th, For Animals, Inc. participated in the Remember Me Thursday global awareness campaign with animal lovers and other animal rescue organizations around the world. Remember Me Thursday was started by the Helen Woodward Animal Center in California, and it is a companion animal candle-lighting ceremony that shines light on the many companion animals who never got a chance to find a happy home and lost their lives, and the millions who are still awaiting adoption.

Our ceremony was held outside of NYC PET in Park Slope. We had a wonderful fundraiser with great raffle prizes that were generously donated by local businesses like V-Spot, Awakenings, NYC PET, and Made with Love. The support we received from passersby was amazing. We heard, more than once, “Anything for animals!”

We are so grateful to be a part of a community of people who love animals like we do!
