Fostering saves lives

I was handling my emotions pretty well until Patsy Topping picked up my sweet foster dog Lindy and took her inside of the transport bus. That's when I got a little misty eyed. Michael Schofield would soon be driving Lindy and 14 other dogs up north to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons in New York. "Oh, she's a hugger," Patsy said warmly. Lindy, a former short-term resident of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter, loves to be held and snuggled. As a first time foster Mom, the experience couldn't have been any better or more ...

Fourth of July BBQ essentials

The Fourth of July is tomorrow and revelers across the nation are preparing to toast their independence with family and friends.

Historic Camden’s Did you Know?

While Ben Franklin was key to the crafting of the Declaration of Independence, the other Founding Fathers did not want him to be the main author - as they felt they couldn't trust him not to put a joke in it!

"The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America." He was right about the way we honor it though: "It ought ...

Big noses, big hearts

Karl and Kay Allen of Black River Rescue, and Lucy, part of their four-legged family and co-workers, present a special children's program at the Kershaw County Library. The program included information on their dogs' special talents and what the Allens and their dogs do. The Allens taught the children to "hug a tree" if they ever happen to become lost in the woods because body scents populate and remain trapped under limbs and branches, which can help bloodhounds find and rescue them. Bloodhounds not only have super-sensitive noses -- more than 4 million scent cells -- they also have floppy ears ...
