Patch

I just couldn’t resist putting this photo up…

This is Patch, a 2-year-old Border Collie cross Australian Kelpie.

She was recently surrendered to Council by her owner as they are unable to look after her.

‘Patch’ is a very friendly dog that loves exercise and is very good with other dogs and people.

She would love to be adopted by a family with a large backyard or a farm where she has space to run and play.

If you would like to meet Patch please call the Rangers on 1300 87 83 87 to make an appointment.

The adoption fee is $259 which includes microchipping, desexing, vet check, vaccinations and lifetime registration.

Lismore City Council Rehoming Organisation Number: R251000162.
