The Hero Dogs Of September 11th

As the Towers Fell, Hero Dogs Got to Work

Sixteen years ago the unthinkable happened when hijacked airplanes collided with the World Trade Center in New York City in a deliberate act of terror.

Amid the panic, fear, and destruction, thousands of heroes responded by giving everything they could – including their lives – to help save others.

On this anniversary of the September 11th attacks, explore would like to share the story of Search Dog Foundation’s Abby, a search and rescue dog that quickly got to work at Ground Zero, looking for survivors in the days after the tragedy. Watch the full film here.

Dog Bless You,
