VIDEO: 2 dogs rescued from plastic-lined pond in Wayne County

Wayne County News

Town workers in Wayne County Tuesday helped rescue two dogs that were stuck in a pond and could not get out because a slick plastic liner had been installed around the edges, officials said.

Two Fremont public works employees found the dogs treading water in the pond along Davis Mill Road around 9 a.m.


Fremont police contacted animal control officers, who assisted in the rescue. 

In video of the rescues, at least one dog can be heard whining while treading water as people reach out to help him.

Two of the Fremont town workers were able to get one dog out. The second dog was rescued by animal control officers. 

It’s not known how long the dogs were in the pond until they were rescued.

No one seems to know who owns the dogs, which will be kept at Wayne County Animal Control.
