AIA member organisations and many others remembered the animals who gave their lives in war at the ASWA memorial service for animals at the Park Lane Animals in War Memorial at 3.00pm on Sunday 13th November. 

The service was led by Revd. Dr Helen Hall and included readings from Revelations, War Horse and Glowworms; intercessions by Revd. Professor Martin Henig and an address by Pen Farthing of Nowzad Dogs.  After the two minutes silence, wreaths were laid for the millions of animals who have given their lives in war.

They had no choice.

  1. Thank you, Barbara, Thom, and all attenders at the service.

    It is so important to remember and honour the animals whose lives were taken from them in war – in common with all conscripts, they had no choice.
