During WW1 the Society suffered a decrease in funds and a lesser ability to campaign, but it continued its work.
Mr Williams conducted meetings throughout the country, with various reported on in the local press. In one lecture he included a plea for the animals giving service on battlefields.
The Dog’s Bazaar in aid of the Society was held in the November and was very successful despite the ongoing war. A percentage of the profits were given to the Red Cross Funds (£100) this resulted in the naming of two beds in a Scottish Military Hospital, which were named “The Dog’s Bazaar, 1914, No. 1” and “The Dog’s Bazaar, 1914, No. 2”
