As Canadians come together on Remembrance Day to remember and honour those who have served their country, the war-time contributions of animals will also be recognized through the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s Animals in War commemorative pins.
A variety of animals have served in wartime. Mules carried artillery, horses transported troops and hauled field guns, pigeons delivered crucial messages and dogs served as messengers, medical assistants, bomb detectors and search and rescue workers.
The Animals in War pin is designed to be worn alongside your poppy to remember our veterans and the animals who bravely served by their side.
This year, to support veterans and Legions through challenges brought on by COVID-19, $2.50 from each pin sold will be donated to Royal Canadian Legion branches across the province.
**We cannot guarantee orders placed after November 4 will arrive by Remembrance Day.**
