1. What do you like most about living in Oldham County?

I like the rural character of our landscape, the woods and fields and streams are my favorite places.

I was recruited for the position by the former administration since their director left suddenly and I had a strong background in animal management.

3.  Please tell me more about Oldham County Animal Control,  and what services it provides to Oldham County residents.

We provide a multitude of animal related services. We investigate cruelty, neglect and abandonment of domestic animals.  We prosecute serious cases in District Court.  Oldham County Animal Control regulates the licensing of dogs.  We provide rabies quarantine on both owned and stray animals, pick up loose stray dogs, remove livestock from roadways when they escape.  We also temperament test animals prior to adoption.  Oldham County Animal Control networks with other agencies and groups to find homes for adoptable animals.  Lastly, we mediate animal related complaints, and we do ALL OF THIS within the confines of a small budget!

We should maintain our rural land and our agricultural heritage.

License your dog. It establishes legal ownership of the animal. Always supervise children and dogs. There are an appalling number of dog bites every year with children as the primary victims.
