Young Noah Tremblay was the driving force behind the creation of a monument dedicated to the animals that helped people in times of war, conflict and peace. The idea originated from a heritage fair school project he did. It quickly became the 12-year-old boy’s mission to raise enough money to build a monument.

He collected donations and sold beeswax lip balm and raffle tickets. He also designed the granite memorial, which was erected in 2012 “in memory of all animals and handlers who served in our military and police forces.” The names of the animals and their handlers are also inscribed on it.

The Memorial to Forgotten Heroes is located in Veterans Memorial Park in Bass River, Nova Scotia.
