I think this is great! I know that I have made an animal welfare call and it has taken a while for them to get there because they are so busy, good job on rescuing all of those animals at the hoards guys! Continue the good work your doing by helping all of these innocent animals!

What a waste of tax payers money, why dos it take two deputies to do the work that one dog warden has always done and why should we have to pay them so much more than we paid the previous dog warden? When times are tough most people tighten their budgets but not Washington county, no they have plenty of our money to waste on extra employees and equipment.

The animals should be "fixed" BEFORE they are adopted from the shelter. Spend some of adoption fee they are taking in and pay to have the animals spayed and neutered!!!!!!!!!!

I am sure that the fees accessed by the shelter barely cover the costs of food and shelter

I can't imagine someone just taking their dog and dropping it off somewhere. And I do not understand the mentality of someone like that.

I got my dog from an individual and my cat was a stray some dirt bag had abused and dropped off at my place.

It sounds the the Dog Warden does need a little help. That would of been a good part time summer job for some kid who loves animals and wants a summer job. Not sure why they would hire a person for assistant dog warden who is already a deputy.

Come on commissioners tell the public how you contracted the humane shelter to help the dog warden in the dog warden duties at $20.00 hr. Tell them how changing to the sheriffs office meant a raise from $12.00 hr. to $23.00 hr.
