Remembering the Heroic Dogs of 9/11

9/11.

You don't even need to say more than those two numbers to know what someone is talking about. It's been 19 years since the unforgettable day of destruction and thousands of lives lost. It's a day anyone who lived through it will always remember. It's impossible not to. 

And while each and every year. there are countless memorials in honor of the heroic police, firemen, first responders, and all those who were lost. Today, we would like to take a moment and honor all of those who were impacted by 9/11, and the heroic dogs who were on the scene, trying to locate and save all who they could. More than 300 dogs joined the emergency rescue workers. These dogs are heroes in every sense of the word, from searching to rescuing, to comforting, to even bomb detection. The canines of 9/11 were pure acts of courage and will forever be remembered. 

There's a reason dogs are man's best friend. They are the epitome of heart and strength.

Remembering The Cats Of 9/11 With This Heartwarming Post

Elisa Black-Taylor, an experienced cat caretaker and rescuer, wrote a fascinating and touching post a few years ago, on the eve of the 10th anniversary of one of the worst days in American history. In her post, she tells the story of all those poor cats who were at Ground Zero during the 9/11 attacks as well as those cats left alone in their apartments for days, as their owners couldn't go back due to the chaos in the city or worse, didn't come back at all. We were so attached by this post, that we have decided we had to share it with you in her own words. You can read more of Elisa's posts on her Facebook page.
