Lucas County Dog Warden To speak here
Skeldon will address a dog’s role in society, both healthy and unhealthy. He will also answer questions about recent concerns voiced by citizens that his office isn’t doing enough to increase the rate of adoptions in lieu of euthanasia.
Skeldon, 60, has been the dog warden since 1987. He supervises a staff of 25 with a budget of more than $1 million. He has both been praised and vilified for advocating and enforcing laws that single out pit bulls as a vicious breed.
Prior to his tenure as dog warden, Skeldon trained dog teams for various corporations and designed security programs.
Lucas County has the highest percentage of licensed dogs in the state.
