From the Ask Joe file, one of our viewers has a question about some changes that may be in the works at Washoe County Animal Services.

Our viewer asked what is the status of the current Animal Services Manager Barry Brode?


Joe checked into this by calling Animal Services. They said Barry Brode is on vacation, but they did not know when he was coming back.

Joe also checked with Washoe County Spokesperson Nancy Leuenhagan, and she said Barry Brode is currently an employee with Washoe County. She also said county personnel matters are confidential, and they are not able to discuss anything specific relating to Mr. Brode.

Until recently, Animal Services fell under the direction of the Washoe County Sheriff. But as of July 1, the department is now under the County Manager.
Leuenhagen did confirm that Washoe County will be launching a national search for a Director of Animal Services.

For now, all we know is that Barry Brode is not at work, but there is no word on whether or when he will be back on the job.
