Both of Kenn’s dogs have since passed away joining all the Hero Dogs of 9/11 at Rainbow Bridge. 

It’s hard to believe it has been 19 years since the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. Many people lost their lives on that day nineteen years ago and with the help of FEMA – certified canine search specialists at the World trace Center, public knowledge of disaster search dogs was brought to the fore front because of this tragic event. It is also people like film maker Kenn Bell who helped bring awareness to the work these amazing canines do to help families bring their loved ones home. Kenn’s documentary tells the heroic stories of people who were saved and recovered by the remarkable working dogs at Ground Zero.

If you have not had a chance to view this amazing documentary about The Hero Dogs of 9/11, it is a must see.  Kenn Bell was the Executive Producer of the TV special The Hero Dogs of 9/11 for Animal Planet and he is also a Writer, Director, Producer and creator of www.thedogfiles.com  Over the past couple of years Kenn and I have become good friends and we try to keep up with each other’s projects. He has recently done another documentary for the ASPCA called Second Chance Dogs.

None of us will ever forget that day 19 years ago when terrorist attacked our country.  In my mind I can still see the sight of  the World Trade Center Twin Towers come crashing down after each tower had been hit by two hi-jacked commercial airliners. 2976 innocent people died on that day 19 years ago this week.

Emergency workers came from all over the United States to help with rescue and recovery. Among those workers who carefully scoured the ruble of the collapsed buildings was a group of 300 disaster search dogs to help their handlers locate victims of the horrible attack. Most of the Hero Dogs of 9/11 have since passed away and gone over Rainbow Bridge but we will never forget their service to our country. May all of the dogs Rest in Peace along with all the loved ones who lost their lives on that tragic day 19 years ago.

We will never forget. ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock

About Kenn Bell: 

After adopting an American Foxhound/Pointer mix named Max from a local shelter, Kenn Bell decided to combine his skills as a filmmaker with his immense love of all things canine to create the very best Dog Video Series and Website on the web.

After christening it, Dog Files, and making Max the mascot (that’s him in the logo), he began to travel around the country with both his dogs Max and Remy documenting how involved dogs are in all our lives. Both Max and Remy have since gone to The Rainbow Bridge.
