Saying thanks to the 350 rescue dogs who responded on 9/11

A statue in honor of the working dogs who helped during and after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 has been unveiled. Essex County Eagle Rock September 11th Memorial in West Orange has commissioned a 5,000 pound, four-foot high rescue dog statue to mark the contribution of the search and rescue dogs and therapy dogs who worked at the site of the World Trade Center and Pentagon, writes Jessica Mazzola of NJ Advance Media for NJ.com.

The statue was designed by the sculptor Jay Warren and was paid for through corporate donations.
