Each year, the Ontario SPCA releases a new commemorative Animals in War collectible pin leading up to Remembrance Day. The pin is intended to be worn as a complement to the poppy in remembrance of our veterans and the animals who bravely served by their side.
The first Animals in War pin was launched in 2017 and the collection includes a horse, a dog, a limited-edition pin in honour of the women who have served in Canada’s military, 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.
This year, we are excited to release a new pin, featuring a cat*, in honour of the wartime contribution of animals.
*Cat pin coming this fall!
