Jeffersonville taps Heavrin as new animal shelter director

JEFFERSONVILLE —

The search for Sarah Green’s replacement is over.

Charles Heavrin, who serves as the shelter manager for the Kentucky Humane Society, was announced as the new director of the J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter in Jeffersonville, according to a press release issued Tuesday by the office of Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore. 

“We have a top-notch animal shelter. It was important to find the right person to oversee the facility,” Moore said in the release. “I am confident that Charlie is the right person for the job. His extensive experience in animal control and management will be an asset for the city and the animals.”

Heavrin, who lives in Harrison County, has been employed by the Kentucky Humane Society since 2002 in a variety of capacities. His responsibilities include shelter manager, adoptions leader, rescue officer, CEO assistant and spay/neuter clinic manager. Heavrin also previously served as the operations manager of the Floyd County Animal Shelter between 1990 and 1996, and as its interim director from 1999 to 2002. 

Heavrin will take his role with the J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter on June 4. He will earn $45,000 per year managing a staff of 10 and a $500,000 budget. 

“I look forward to working for the city,” Heavrin said in the release. “My primary objective is to continue the high standard of animal care and customer service residents have come to expect.” 

Green announced in early April that she would resign effective May 1. It was the second time Green has offered a resignation to the city. She previously submitted a letter of resignation this past winter as a result of the long hours she was working, she told the News and Tribune at the time.

 Green took over the role of shelter director when Moore’s administration took office in 2011, and her tenure has seen its share of ups and downs.
