Lucas County Dog Warden To speak here
Tom Skeldon, Lucas County Dog Warden, will speak to the East Toledo Club Thursday, Noon at Cousino’s, Woodville Road.
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.
The public is invited. There is a charge for lunch.
