Historic Registry

Despite much media coverage immediately during and after 9/11, there is no complete and accurate record of all of the SAR, Veterinarians, therapy and other human-canine teams who served, whether civilian, law enforcement, or military. To remember the valiant efforts and sacrifices that were made at the World Trade Center, Freshkills Landfill, the Pentagon, and in the fields of Pennsylvania, we are gathering together this important historical data so it may be archived and kept in memory for generations to come.

The archived copies of the historic registry may be preserved, inter alia, at

  • The Finding One Another website at www.tailsofhopefoundation.org;
  • The National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City;
  • Library of Congress, Washington, DC;
  • University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Penn Vet Working Dog Center, PA at www.pennvetwdc.org;
  • The 10th anniversary edition of Dog Heroes of September 11th, by Nona Kilgore Bauer, Kennel Club Books/BowTie Press (referenced); and
  • The Photography Exhibit at the Palisades Center Mall, West Nyack, NY (display mid-August through September 30, 2011).
