Hero Dogs of 9/11 (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Since I spend so much time in the world of animal rescue, running Tails of Joy, my days are filled with people rescuing animals. Yet if truth be told, it is usually the animals doing the rescuing, figuratively, and sometimes, literally.

This is a video made by Kenn Bell for his site, Dog Files. "Hero Dogs Of 9/11" is a tribute to the more than 300 search-and-rescue dogs who helped in the rescue effort at the World Trade Center after terrorists attacked on September 11, 2001. These dogs help rescue teams not just around the country, but in so many disaster situations, around the world.

This September 11th I'll be hosting the Animal Acres 2010 Gala in Acton California. Because on a day known for loss of life, it's nice to save some.
