Remembering the Service Dogs Who Helped in 9/11 Rescue Efforts
Today is the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attack on America, and it’s heartbreaking to think of so many of the people we lost that day. We remember the lives lost, and the brave heroes who helped with search and rescue, particularly in the rubble of the World Trade Center.
Along with those brave men and women, we pay tribute to the brave service dogs who helped with search and rescue, and also as therapy dogs.
The popular social media account “WeRateDogs” – which regularly honors the goodest of doggos – helped to pay some tribute to some of those special animals today.
Some 300 dogs were thought to be involved with the search and rescue efforts, including some of the ones WeRateDogs featured.
Check out this video, as we remember the lives lost, and the heroes who stepped up for our nation.
