A local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Officer will lay a wreath honoring animals who served during wartime
at the National Remembrance Day Ceremony in Ottawa today (Friday).
SPCA Officer Tex Ridder will lay the wreath to remember the brave deeds of animals who worked side by side with Canadian Veterans.
A variety of animals have served in wartime. Mules carried artillery, horses transported troops and guns, pigeons delivered crucial
messages, and dogs served in various roles, including search and rescue.
