NSR was called today to assist with the rescue of Rex who was overcome by the current in Capilano River. NSR was able to spot the dog via chopper and bring him to safety.


And a note to dog owners on behalf of Metro Vancouver Regional Park to please keep their dogs on the trail, even if off leash, and keep them away from fast moving water.


NSR recommends that you keep your dog on leash at all times during this time of high water.


Note: The chopper time was paid for by the owner, and NSR is all volunteer – so no charges were incurred by the government or taxpayer.
