Hunter, a former shelter dog, is now paired with a fireman Billy Monahan. This story features shelter pets that went from rescued to rescuer. These search-and-rescue teams are making our country safe. The teams we feature in the film have been to the World Trade Center and helped look for survivors in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Rita, Superstorm Sandy and the Joplin tornadoes. When a disaster strikes and people are buried, these search dogs will be the first on the scene to save you.
