Animal shelter director out

2 years ago December 04, 2012 Dec 4, 2012 Tuesday, December 04 2012 Tuesday, December 04, 2012 7:44:11 PM EST in News

BATON ROUGE- The director of the animal shelter is out of a job.

WBRZ News 2 confirmed Kimberly Sherlaw is no longer with the shelter.

The shelter has been in the midst of controversy over how it is operated. Numerous complaints have been filed against the organization in charge of the shelter, Companion Animal Alliance.

A recent report by the city found animals were mistreated. Among the issues, severely ill animals waited too long before being euthanized. CAA denied the allegations.

But, it wasn't enough for city leaders. The Baton Rouge Metro Council discussed the issues at a meeting in November.

Sherlaw was on the job less than a year. She replaced another director who quit not long after taking over the shelter in 2011.

Sherlaw's phone went unanswered when WBRZ News 2 called for a comment Tuesday night.
