Maybe he is trying to find some other woman he can put into his truck and take to the parks to enjoy the view from the back of the truck. He is nothing but a big fat joke, does not deserve his cushy job.

I've heard on several different occasions that he was called on dog complaints (during the day)and people could never get ahold of him so they called the police and the police came out and chased the dog down and they would have to take the dog to the pound because they couldn't get ahold of him either.
The Police has bigger problems to deal with then a dog. Not only that, but they shouldn't have to pick up the slack for him. That's in his job description, not thiers.

I am sick and tired of him getting away with everything....I know on several occasions people have volunteered to help him out but he comes up with excuse after excuse why he don't have the time.....I think it has more to do with the fact that he is doing illegal things.....he takes dogs back to hobo junction and shoots them.....he gives his friends free passes to continue being neglectful.....he gives away dogs instead of requiring them to buy the tags (I know that may seem ok but that is not in his legal rights to do that once a dog is surrendered it becomes property of the county by him giving them away that is theft).....he NEVER answers his phone.....he is NEVER properly prepared for court....I could go on and on but the truth of the matter is he is an appointed official and it will take a lot more than topix to get him out....u want him out make repeated calls to the county commissioners

He also does NOT deal with cats. He claims to have "no place" for them so he takes them in the back, gives them the needle & leaves them to die. He is going to be reported, trust me. Not to his "bosses", not to the police (who are also sick of not being able to get a hold of him & having to waste their time chasing after loose dogs), but to someone that will actually do something about him & the conditions of the "humane" shelter.

Better start cleaning up Rich, literally.

What upsets me about this wonderful dog warden of ours is...OOOOH I can't choose JUST ONE!!!! He gets a home to live in courtesy of the tax payers hard earned money, but yet he doesn't do his job to earn it. He uses the company vehicle to do PERSONAL errands or whatever you want to call em. He is not taking proper care of the animals at the shelter. I called last summer about him helping me find a home for my dog. I was willing to keep the dog until a home could be found so it wouldn't take up space in the shelter. I called and left SEVERAL messages and nothing returned, but yet I see him a couple doors down, during business hours shootin the breeze with the neighbors. He could have been returning my phone call, OR someone elses! Here recently I have called due to strays in the area. One of the dogs like to chase ppl on bikes and bites at them. This dog is STILL running loose and yet NO return call from Rich! This is pathetic...why is he still allowed to have a job. No matter who we complain to someone always covers his back. They could make money for the county if he would do his job. Once people saw that he was actually doing what he is suppose to, they would support that place a lot better! Pretty sad when the town of Van Wert will jump on helping the Paulding shelter before their own, because of Rich's ways!!!!
Set your priorities straight girl scout your in the big leagues your job!

i know for a fact that he has been out crusing around in the truck....when he gets a call (and actually answers it..usually from the police) he tells them he is out on another case just so he doesnt have to a community we need to stand up and do something...a little helpful hint...if you call up to the commissioners office make sure you actually talk to one of them bc the guy that answers the phone hunts with rich and will not pass on bad messages....the last time i actually talked to a commissioner they had no idea about some of the things going on bc they never got their messages

Would any of you be willing to sign a petition to have him removed and someone new hired? I would hope you all were't just talk here on the computer & really do have concern for the animals.
