Dog Heroes of September 11th
A Tribute to America’s Search and Rescue Dogs
Nona Kilgore Bauer

Dog Heroes of September 11th is the first major publication to salute the canines that served the nation in the recovery missions following the terrorists’ attacks on America. Beautifully written and elegantly designed, the book provides an excellent overview of the mission and requirements of these search and rescue dogs and serves as a lasting tribute to these noble American heroes.


The images of destruction and the feelings of loss that accompany the mention of September 11th are ever-present in our national consciousness. Often forgotten, however, are the images of recovery and the stories of hope that capture the resilience and transcendence of the American people.

Dog Heroes of September 11th: A Tribute to America’s Search and Rescue Dogs, by award-winning author Nona Kilgore Bauer, is a chronicle of 78 search and rescue (SAR) teams that responded in America’s time of need. Bauer embarked on a difficult journey to locate and interview more than 75 of the canine search and rescue teams that responded to the September 11th emergency. Many of these teams were among the first responders to the biggest attack on American soil in history, and their vivid accounts of the aftermath are heartrending and unexpectedly uplifting.

Weaving together first-hand anecdotes, accurate historical information, and evocative photography, Dog Heroes of September 11th pays tribute to the unsung heroes of search and rescue that will capture the hearts of readers everywhere.
