Jimbo rescue rewarded

Nelson Search and Rescue came in to rescue the dog from a perilous situation and there was much relief for the Baio/Lagace family.

When Jimbo — a 10-year-old Australian Shepherd Cross — fell into Grohman Creek earlier this month, his family was distraught. Nelson Search and Rescue came in to rescue the dog from a perilous situation and there was much relief for the Baio/Lagace family. To show their appreciation, Jimbo’s masters Sam Baio and Steph Lagace (owners of Valhalla Pure on Baker Street) donated a $1,000 gift certificate to the shop so the local search team can buy gear. On hand last week for the presentation were (L-R) Chris Armstrong from Nelson Search and Rescue, Aiden Armstrong, Leah Zoobkoff from Nelson Search and Rescue, Baio, Lagace, Tailsen Armstrong (front left), Jane Baio (front right), and Jimbo.
