Black kelpie dog

Pet of the week

Jessie is a gorgeous 1 year old staffy who is looking for her forever home. She is very energetic and loves a good run. She is great around people and other dogs and loves lots of affection. She would suit a family with another dog as she loves company. Jessie has been microchipped but is not registered or desexed.

To rehome Jessie, read the Impounded Animals page on Council’’s website at www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/pound then contact Council Customer Services on 6566 3200 and quote Jessie’s impound number, 10980
