    Penn Vets Share Stories of Working Dogs at Ground Zero After 9/11

    The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks didn't just take the lives of nearly 3,000 people, they also irreversibly affected the lives of tens of thousands more, including survivors, victims' families, first responders, and recovery workers. Their stories are being recorded and preserved by the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City–and now those oral histories include the perspective of veterinarians who cared for the search and rescue dogs who responded at Ground Zero.
