Windsor Terrace artist Nan Carey is one of 75 artists participating in DOGNY, the American Kennel Club’s public art program that is placing up to 300 life-size dog statues on the streets and public spaces of New York City through November in honor of the search-and-rescue dogs who came to the nation’s attention working at Ground Zero.

Carey’s black Labrador retriever (pictured), painted on the standard blank German Shepherd statue, is a rendering of Elvis, a NYPD search-and-rescue dog.

Following the exhibition, the sculptures will be auctioned off Dec. 16 at Sotheby’s in Manhattan with proceeds going to support America’s Search and Rescue Dog organizations through the American Kennel Club Companion Animal Recovery Corporation Canine Support and Relief Fund.

"The events of Sept. 11 brought to the public’s attention the valuable work that search-and-rescue teams perform on a regular basis," said the creator of DOGNY, Dennis Sprung. "It is our hope that the DOGNY project will serve as a tribute to the tireless efforts of these canine teams and raise funds needed to help them continue their efforts."

Look for DOGNY sculptures in these locations: Hoyt and Schermerhorn streets and 9 Metrotech Center.
