For years, decades even, the news surrounding Barrow County Animal Control has involved plenty of negatives.
From a revolving door in terms of directors to poor community relations to documented mistreatment of animals, the department is hoping to leave all that past negativity behind. Working toward that goal is new director, Jackie Nguyen, who has officially taken the role of Barrow County Animal Control director. The Barrow County Board of Commissioners approved the hire in late February.
Nguyen’s first day on the job was last Monday and she says she is currently working with animal control staff members, seeking their input on how to improve the department.
“One thing that I have already put into practice to improve the department is to get to know the employees and have their input on what they would like to see as well,” she said. “The staff is full of great ideas and I think that amongst us, we can create not only a wonderful work environment, but a great shelter that is dedicated to providing top quality service to the community and to the animals.”
