Karl Allen with Black River Rescue and his assistant Ann Marie Holland made presentations about bloodhounds at both the Camden and Elgin branches of the Kershaw County Library. The pair taught both children and adults how to respond if they find themselves lost in the woods, as well as clarified many misconceptions about the breed. Allen, a former deputy with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, specializes in training and handling bloodhounds for search and rescue. During one demonstration, children had the opportunity to hide in the woods behind the library only to be found by the bloodhound.  Black River Rescue is an organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, training and placement of abandoned, neglected or abused bloodhounds. It provides bloodhound search and rescue services to any person or organization that requests assistance. For more information about the organization, it can be found on under “Black River Rescue.”
