9/11 Remembered: Search and Rescue Dogs

September 07, 2021 - January 02, 2022

In the aftermath of 911, the AKC commisioned over 100 DOGNY sculptures to be decorated by local artists and later auctioned for charity garnering $3.5mil for Search and Rescue Dogs. Notable examples, such as Vera Wang's sequin spangled "Angel" were brought back for display. The exhibition also featured hero dogs from Ron Burns The Dogs of 911 as well as archival photographs and first-hand accounts.

Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.



Service animals are welcome in the museum. The museum entrance is wheelchair accessible via the building’s main plaza on the corner of Park Ave and E 40th Street. Accessible elevators are located on the first floor of the museum to the left of the admissions desk and gift shop. Public restrooms include accessible facilities.

If you have any questions regarding accessibility, please feel free to contact the museum.
