In Remembrance of 9/11: Service Dogs

September 11, 2012


9/11 was a horrific event, but also one that brought us all closer together. On the anniversary of the attacks, we remember those who died, and are thankful for those that survived. Many survivors were rescued by search and rescue dogs. The search and rescue dogs that saved so many of these lives  heightened awareness of detection dogs and the amazing abilities of our canine companions.  11 years after the tragedy, a new resource for future search and rescue dogs is open. Today is the grand opening of the new training center at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center. The new location will provide an optimal environment for training and breeding great detection dogs.

The center is looking to find great puppies to add to their program, preferably from working or hunting lines. If you or anyone you know might have a potential pup for them, you can fill out the survey on this page on the left hand side, under “Puppy Donation Form.”

You can also help the program by donating here.
