Within days of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, thousands of people arrived at the crash sites to aid in the response. Accompanying them were hundreds of dogs trained in search and rescue or therapy work. At a time of crisis, these four-legged responders showed courage and dedication alongside their human handlers.
The temporary exhibition “Dogs of 9/11,” now on view at the 9/11 Memorial Museum, remembers the service of the dogs of 9/11 through art created by a few of their many admirers.
The American Kennel Club wrote about the exhibition and the tributes to these heroic rescue dogs, whose “actions helped bring healing to a country in mourning, and we will forever be grateful for their service.”
