From the website:
Throughout history, in war and in peacetime, animals and mankind have worked alongside each other. As beasts of burden, messengers, protectors, mascots, and friends, the war animals have demonstrated true valour and an enduring partnership with humans. The bond is unbreakable, their sacrifice great – we honour the animals of war.
The initial aim of the Australian War Animal Memorial is to promote the establishment of War Animal plaques at Parks, RSLs or local and Federal government sites.
The main aim is to establish a permanent War Animal Monument for all Queenslanders to view in Brisbane city. This will act as a focal point for all Queenslanders to honour the contributions animals have made to our Nation.
It is a volunteer none-profit organization made up of community members from diverse backgrounds that have the like minded aim to recognize the deeds of animals during Australian military service and to educate generations to follow of the sacrifices of four legged diggers have made.
Lest we forget the animals that were roped into “service” during war.
