We all know that hundreds of firefighters, police officers and ambulance crews helped out on 9/11 to rescue those trapped in the World Trade Center, but rarely do we hear about the heroic rescue dogs of that fateful day. With the help of FEMA, photographer Charlotte Dumas tracked down 15 dogs who worked to find survivors in the rubble of the twin towers, and fittingly named her photo series Retrieved.

‘These animals were all at the same place at the same time, one decade ago, for the same reason: to work. That experience unites them, and was the incentive for me to pursue this subject and to photograph the dogs’, says Dumas of her work.
