  • It wouldn’t be a stretch to say Jerry Foley’s life has gone to the dogs. And cats, too.

    Foley, 52, has been the Hardin County animal control supervisor since 1987. He retired briefly but soon returned to the job.

    He said he fell into the job because of his love of dogs, even taking a cut in pay from his previous job.

    “My dog’s never let me down. My dog’s always happy to see me. My dog’s never hurt my feelings,” he said. “So I guess I am a dog person.”

    Ok, I messed up. A couple of people sent me messages to put things in here, and I didn’t do it. I am really sorry. It was not intentional. From now on, if you send me an email, I will respond back to put it in the paper, of course, then I have to remember to put it in. If you do not get a response from me, please send it again. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings or miss out on any of the news. I really enjoy doing this, but sometimes I have a senior moment and just mess up.
