Angela Rhodes out as humane society director
JANESVILLE The Rock County Humane Society Board of Directors announced this morning that embattled Executive Director Angela Rhodes is no longer with the organization.
“The board of directors is currently evaluating their options and will be pursing candidates to fill the critical role of executive director,” a press release from the humane society reads.
It does not elaborate about the circumstances of Rhodes leaving.
“The board and staff have always been committed to exceptional animal care,” the news release said. “However, other important factors such as customer service and donor relations have fallen short.”
Rhodes had been with the humane society since 2009. The relationship between local municipalities and the human society have grown increasingly tense.
The humane society changed its policies regarding what animals it would take. In addition, it was also asking for more funding.
“Moving forward, the board and staff are committed to finding forever homes for pets, mending customer relations and forging solid partnerships with our donors,” the news release reads.
