The 6th Annual Remember Me Thursday®  on Sept. 27, 2018 asks pet lovers and animal rescue groups to create an unstoppable voice for homeless pets and encourage communities to opt to adopt and reduce the millions of homeless pets euthanized each year.

To be a part of the 2018 Remember Me Thursday® campaign on Sept. 27, individuals and animal welfare organizations are encouraged to get the entire world talking about pet adoption by tweeting, tagging, posting and sharing the beauty and life-saving significance of pet adoption using the hashtag #RememberMeThursday and @hwac.

Animal-lovers can win life-saving funds, toys and food for adoptable pets looking for forever families at their favorite non-profit, pet adoption organization.
