Galen Myotherapy are proud to share information about our charity, which we set up in 2015.
War Dogs Remembered was formed to pay tribute to and raise awareness of all the dogs that have served in the military. We raise funds to educate and share knowledge around the tremendous work that these dogs have undertaken, some paying the ultimate price for their service. We have a large following on social media, and we're proud to tell the stories of dogs that have saved countless lives.
Since 2016, Julia Robertson, founder of War Dogs Remembered has taken part in the annual Remembrance Parade in Ypres, Belgium with her Labrador, Molly. The event on 11 November attracts large crowds who wish to pay their respects to all the soldiers who were killed in the Great War but never found. Molly wears a coat that reads "Pet dogs like me saved thousands of soldiers' lives".
At this ceremony we lay three wreaths, which are sponsored by our supporters. These wreaths commemorate dogs that saw duty in World War One, World War Two, and a third wreath to show respect to dogs that lost their lives in conflicts since.
Other activities we are currently involved in a project to build activity trails dedicated to dogs that have served, for dogs and owners to visit, connect and engage with.
