GREENSBORO, N.C. — Guilford County Animal Services Director Logan Rustan resigned Tuesday, county officials said.

His last day will be June 7.

Rustan, who had previously helmed the county’s Animal Control department, took over the beleaguered Guilford County Animal Shelter on an interim basis last summer after the county terminated its contract with the United Animal Coalition.

He was hired permanently in December.

Rustan said Thursday he had no immediate job plans but felt it was time to step away from his career in animal welfare.

“I love what I do. I love this job. I love everything about it,” he said. “But it just got to the point where not being able to make everybody happy started to wear on me.”
