Announcing National Animal Day 2020

While we remember horses, mules and donkeys with our purple poppies you have been reminding us that over two world wars tens of thousands of dogs and cats also perished. Their contribution and sacrifice was immeasurable, and yet little is said or done to commemorate the role they played – at home and on the battlefield. Today we redress the balance; we are announcing that this August 23 we will also be remembering dogs and cats too. As we wear our purple poppy pin badges with pride, we hope that you will show your support for all animals by honouring the service of animals in war to help us provide a lasting legacy for animals in need. You have asked us to provide knitted purple poppies that your beloved animals can also wear and, thanks to kind-hearted knitters from across the UK and the Commonwealth, we are able to offer three sizes suitable for equines, dogs and cats. Check out these poster boys and girls modelling our knitted poppies – and visit our SHOP to find out more.

Our grateful thanks to Charlie, Cowboy, Harvey, Jake, Kayla, Pebbles, Ruby and Treacle..
