The Canine Heroes of 9-11
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Caption: A tired search dog finds time to rest as rescue efforts at the World Trade Center in New York City continue just a few feet away.
 
2     There were many heroes who worked to search for survivors of 9-11. One group of rescue workers was not firefighters, military, or law enforcement personnel. They did not wear protective gear over their faces. They were paid little more for their efforts than a pat on the head, a little praise, and a good meal. This amazing group of volunteers was the search-and-rescue canines. The SARC's are dogs of different breeds and ages that have been trained to perform as search-and-rescue canines.
 
3     In the days following the terrorist attacks of 9-11, rescuers frantically worked to locate as many survivors in the rubble as humanly possible. Some of the finest SAR dogs in the nation were dispatched to search the still smoldering debris. More than three hundred and fifty dogs were involved in the search and rescue efforts at the World Trade Center.
