Sarasota, Fla. – (September 22, 2015) – Cat Depot will join the Remember Me Thursday® Awareness Movement on Thursday, September 24th at 1:00 p.m. with a candle lighting ceremony and blessing by Rabbi Barbara Aiello. Location: Cat Depot, 2542 17th Street, Sarasota, Fla. Rabbi Barbara is the first woman and first non-orthodox rabbi in Italy. She divides her time between Sinagoga Ner Tamid del Sud in Calabria and Kobernick House and Anchin Pavilion in Sarasota, Florida.

 

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.

“Millions of beautiful, adoptable pets will lose their lives in 2015,” states Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center. “We all come from different countries, cultures, backgrounds, but together, we can raise our voices and share one life-saving message and literally save millions of pets on this one day.”
