A Note On 9/11

What a special letter to one of our 9/11 heroes, Kerry McGinnis.
Thank you for thinking of us!  And good job Mr. G!

The Humane Society of New York conducted a major rescue operation in the wake of the attack on the World Trade Center, encompassing care and support for animals harmed or left homeless through the disaster. Directly after the attack, the Society's veterinarians were the first to begin emergency triage at Pier 40, near "Ground Zero". They attended more than 200 animals at the Pier, and served as medical escorts for individuals going into sealed apartments to retrieve pets.
