Our Animal Control Officers

ACO Becky Eicher

Our Animal Control Officer Becky Eicher, has worked full time for the City of Woodhaven and the City of Trenton since 1998. Before that she worked for the City of Gibraltar as their Animal Control Officer. Before Mrs. Eicher started her career in Animal Control, she worked for the Michigan Humane Society in Monroe and was going to school to become a Veterinary.

As a child, Mrs. Eicher's parents were always coming home to find a new animal she was saving. From domestic to wildlife, she was amazed by all of them. Her friends and family would joke, "What's next? A monkey?!". Mrs. Eicher remembers a time as a child that the local Animal Control Officer came over, "She thought how neat it have a job like that. I would be able to work with animals every day". Mrs. Eicher became involved in 4-H, showing all kinds of animals. She has shown horses, pigs, ducks, chickens, rabbits, and other furry and feathered creatures. After being in 4-H, she continued to show her horses. Mrs. Eicher then got involved in showing and running dogs in field trails for United Kennel Club, National Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club. During this time she trained several Champions and Grand Champions. She then decided to become a Bench Show Judge for the American Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club. Mrs. Eicher started to train and condition dogs by the means of dog sledding. She eventually got into dog sledding full time. She then started to rescue and race Siberian Huskies.

Over the years, she has personally taken home several sick and needy animals of all kinds. This Animal Control Officer has surrounded her life with her love of our furry and feather friends. You may safely say, this is one example of a caring Animal Control Officer.
