DOGNY – America’s Tribute to Search and Rescue Dogs - "Public art initiative commissioned by the American Kennel Club to honor the search and rescue dogs involved in post-September 11 operations and to raise money to support future endeavors.

After the attacks on the World Trade Center, The Pentagon and Shanksville, PA, teams of handlers and dogs rushed in to assist in locating survivors. The AKC wanted to acknowledge these dogs with a public show of appreciation and a national effort to support their future missions. For this reason, AKC President and CEO Dennis B. Sprung created DOGNY.

On the first anniversary of September 11, AKC and its affiliates, companies in the pet products industry, and many other organizations worked together to display over 100 uniquely painted sculptures of a Search and Rescue Dog throughout the five boroughs of New York City. With names like Let Freedom Ring, Stars and Stripes, and Bone-A-Fido Patriot, the sculptures adorned fire stations, police precincts, and office buildings alongside landmarks such as Rockefeller Center, Trump Plaza, and Broadway’s Shubert Alley.

In Thanksgiving of 2002, the DOGNY sculptures were brought to Sotheby's for a charity auction. One hundred percent of funds raised by AKC for DOGNY (including donations, sponsorships, and auction sales) have been allocated in the AKC CAR Canine Support and Relief Fund for volunteer and professional canine search and rescue organizations throughout the country. To date, AKC has raised over $3 million for this cause. source

"The symbol for the Tribute is the DOGNY dog was a German Shepherd Dog sculpted by artist Robert Braun and cast at the Meisner Gallery. The German Shepherd Dog was chosen because the breed is one of the most widely used in canine search and rescue. Their intelligence, size, agility and keen desire to please their handlers are all qualities that make them wonderfully suited for search, rescue and recovery activities in a variety of scenarios. Each one of the 100 sculptures was sponsored by a patron and painted by a commissioned artist." source

DOGNY - Tributo Americano aos Cães de Busca e Resgate - Projeto do American Kennel Club para homenagear os cães de busca e resgate e seus adestradores. A partir de um modelo criado por Robert L. Braun (retratando um Pastor alemão), mais de 100 esculturas foram espalhadas pelos cinco boroughs de Nova Iorque em 2002 (ao estilo da CowParade), no primeiro aniversário dos ataques terroristas de 11 de setembro nos Estados Unidos; as esculturas foram colocadas em quartéis de bombeiros, delegacias de polícia, edíficios comerciais e locais famosos da cidade, como o Rockefeller Center e o Trump Plaza.

No dia de Ação de Graças do mesmo ano, as esculturas foram leiloadas na famosa casa de leilões Sotheby's; todo o dinheiro arrecadado (incluindo as doações e os patrocínios de cada estátua) foi doado a organizações americanas que trabalham com cães de busca e resgate.

Terriers Around Town - "West Springfield embarked on a yearlong, fundraising outdoor art project that included businesses, artists and West Side students. The town Mascot is a West Highland White Terrier (Westie). There were 40 forty-inch fiberglass Westies painted by 40 artists displayed in ‘litters’ throughout the main streets. Each terrier was sponsored by businesses, which choose the artwork from a portfolio of work with designs for terriers on different themes. At the end of the display the sculptures were taken in and auctioned off to the highest bidder at The Terriers Around Town Pick of the Litter auction, which was held on October 15, 2010."
