Once again the Central Bedfordshire Canine Trust is supporting Animal Aids Purple Poppy Appeal buy selling Purple Poppies which can be worn alongside the traditional red one, as a reminder that both humans and animals have been – and continue to be – victims of war. they are on sale at all our events and direct by contacting the trust office.
During human conflicts, animals have been used as messengers, for detection, scouting and rescue, as beasts if burden and on the frontline. They have been used for companionship in the trenches and continue to be subjected to horrific warfare experiments in laboratories.
Please wear a purple poppy and help us to raise awareness of these forgotten victims.
