Can you help rehome these cute pooches in time for Christmas?

Wilson

Wilson

This happy and healthy male dog is Wilson. He was surrendered to the Kempsey Pound when his owners were no longer in a position to continue looking after him. He has been desexed, microchipped and registered. Wilson is great with other dogs and ready to go to a new loving home.

Bringo

Bringo

Believed to be a Brindle cross Dingo, Bringo first came to Kempsey Pound a frightened surrender. Council Rangers have spent a considerable amount of time with her and she is now content and playing with other dogs. She is about 1 year old and in need of a patient and loving forever home.

If you can help rehome Wilson or Bringo contact Council on 6566 3200 to talk about our adoption process
