AKC Museum of the Dog CEO and Executive Director, Alan Fausel interviews AKC President and CEO, Dennis Sprung on how the American Kennel Club coordinated efforts to assist the SAR handlers and dogs at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
New from the AKC Museum of the Dog: Before September 11, 2001, the general public did not have a very clear idea of what search and rescue (SAR) dogs did. That would all change when over 300 search and rescue teams would be called in to help the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center and the Twin Towers. These dogs would take center stage and show their value during a time of such tragedy. 9/11 Remembered: Search and Rescue Dogs examines the history of search and rescue dogs and highlights the SAR dogs of 9/11. Highlights include several sculptures from the DOGNY project, portraits by artist Ron Burns (author of The Dogs Ron Burns: A Tribute to the Dogs of 9/11), and the winners of the “Salute to Search and Rescue Dogs” art contest hosted by the museum.
