Pet of the week

Seniors Festival Banner

Diesel is an energetic boy who loves a good run and would be best suited to an owner who has plenty of room for him to play.

A Bull Arab, Diesel is affectionate, loves attention and really enjoys his food. He is microchipped and registered, but is not desexed.

Diesel is urgently seeking his forever home with an owner who will give him lots of attention and obedience training.

To rehome Diesel, read the Impounded Animals page on Council’s website at www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/pound then contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on 6566 3200 and quote Diesel’s impound number, 11204
