Here is what is making headlines in the Okanagan for Oct. 29.

A pair of puppies are safe and sound, thanks to Mission Search and Rescue.

The two dogs were rescued from a cliff in the Lower Mainland after residents were concerned about howling coming from the area, a few days ago.

Finding lost animals isn’t part of search and rescues duties.

Steep terrain provided a challenge for search and rescue crews; however the dogs were saved Sunday afternoon.

The owners have yet to be found.
