Sweetheart to animals, Kristen Bell, wants the Twittersphere to help find homes for shelter pets. Bell tweeted:

“Only 30% of pets in US homes come from shelters. Be a #LightForPets on
9/26 & bring awareness at http://www.remembermethursday.org  shelter
pets rule!”

Remember Me Thursday is a pet adoption awareness campaign happening on Thursday, September 26th. The campaign encourages users of social media to spread awareness of adoptable pets in shelters by tweeting the cause, changing their Facebook profile picture, and using the hashtag #LIGHTFORPETS. They even compiled a slew of informative Twitter posts you may use to further the cause. RMT also has information on how to organize your own candlelight vigil in honor of all the pets who didn’t make it. And of course, the organizers encourage you to adopt!
