GRAND HAVEN TWP. — It was a quiet Sunday morning at Grand Haven Township’s Hofma Park, as the visitors’ lot filled with vehicles. Some members of the public enjoyed the scenery and trails at the park, but most began to pop their trunks open and set up camp for the next few hours – with their dogs.

Not just any dogs, but the trained working dogs of Michigan Search and Rescue, a volunteer organization that assists law enforcement and the community in finding missing people, assisting in disasters and recovering dead bodies.
