The first Animals in War pin was launched in 2017 and the collection includes a horse, a dog, a pigeon and new for 2021, a cat. The animal on the pin symbolizes the wartime contributions of all animals.
Mules carried artillery, horses transported troops and hauled field guns, pigeons delivered crucial messages, cats served as companions and kept ships free of vermin, and dogs have 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.
$1.00 from each pin sold will be donated to Royal Canadian Legion branches across the province.
