(Victor Valley)– VVAPL Humane Society is uniting with animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations globally to participate in the 3rd annual Remember Me Thursday® Candle-Lighting Ceremony. The candles, which will be lit on the exact same day across the world, will honor the millions of pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and shine a light on the millions of pets who are still awaiting adoption. VVAPL Humane Society encourages all Victor Valley residents to participate in the public candle-lighting ceremony, Thursday, September 24th, 2015 and to opt to adopt and reduce the millions of orphan pets euthanized each year.

The Remember Me Thursday Candle-Lighting Ceremony kicks off at 6:00 p.m. with a dog walk around the complex. All socialized, vaccinated and licensed dogs on leashes are welcomed to participate. Steve “Stevarino” Elliott, KQTE 1450 AM Morning Personality, will give the opening remarks and light the first flameless candle following the walk.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday, September 24th, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the The Broken Saddle Saloon & Steakhouse, located at 14562 7th Street in Victorville.

We will not be lighting real candles due to fire risk. Please bring a flameless candle, glow stick or download the flameless candle app – Light for Pets, Helen Woodward Animal Center – from the Google Play Store.

Donate a bag of dry dog or cat food and receive a slice of cheesecake from The Broken Saddle Saloon & Steakhouse. (One slice per person.)
