On Thursday, Sept. 28, The Control Group joined the Helen Woodward Animal Center to support Remember Me Thursday. This annual event is intended to raise awareness of pets in shelters, encourage adoption and decrease euthanasia. At The Control Group’s Little Italy and Pacific Beach locations, employees wore T-shirts and took photos to spread the word about the campaign.
Remember Me Thursday unites animal-lovers, celebrities, social media influencers, and animal welfare organizations around the globe. The campaign has far-reaching impacts; it has resulted in 865 million social media impressions, 180 unique countries of participation, participation by over 700 animal welfare organizations, and over 50 celebrity luminaries, including Katherine Heigl and the San Diego Padres.
The campaign was created by Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center, a non-profit organization based in San Diego. The Control Group is a supporter of the Helen Woodward Animal Center, and the company covers adoption fees for any employee who adopts through the center.
Steven Gray, President at The Control Group, said, “The Control Group is proud to support the ongoing efforts of the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Our TCG office dogs are an integral part of our company culture, and joining the Remember Me Thursday campaign ensures that we’re doing our part to help place wonderful, adoptable pets in loving homes.”
Helen Woodward Animal Center saves 3,300 pets each year through its adoption program. Annually, the center’s Pet Encounter Therapy program enables 22,000 children and adults to connect with a therapy animal. To learn more about Remember Me Thursday, please visit www.remembermethursday.org.
