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  Over the past couple of years Kenn and I have become 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.

That day 17 years ago this year will be forever carved in my mind. I can still see the sight of the two buildings in New York City known as the World Trade Center come crashing down after each tower had been hit by two hi-jacked commercial airliners under attack by terrorists.

2976 innocent people died on that day 16 years ago this week.

Emergency workers came from all over the United States to help with rescue and recovery. Among those workers also came 300 Hero Dogs to scour through the ruble looking for survivors. Most of the Hero Dogs of 9/11 have passed away and gone over Rainbow Bridge but we will never forget their service to our great country. May they all Rest in Peace along with all the loved ones lost on that tragic day 16 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.
