K9 Teams of Kent County Search & Rescue (KCSAR)

Karen Palmer's avatar Karen Palmer

Kent County Search and Rescue is an organization made up entirely of professionally trained volunteers. We serve all of West Michigan and sometimes beyond. One of our favorite resources is our K9 unit, which includes dogs trained in several disciplines: trailing, area search, human remains detection, and disasters. We have many dogs of a number of different breeds and mixes, and our handlers and support people have a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. But we train hard as a team, year-round, in all types of weather, so we can help find the missing at any hour, any day of the year. We own and handle our own dogs, building close relationships with them as we train. I hope you see the joy, the deep affections, the skills, and the seriousness of our work in these pieces. This entry is a collection of 9 portraits featuring some of our many K9 and human teammates. It includes graphite, white charcoal, pastel and colored pencils on white, black, or brown paper.
