SHEBOYGAN - There are growing cries for the head of a Sheboygan Animal Shelter to step down.
It comes after the Humane Society's executive director is charged with illegally buying drugs.
Supporters, former workers, and volunteers at the Sheboygan County Humane Society are all asking for one woman's resignation.
"Perhaps now would be an appropriate time for the board of directors to review Ms. Ribbens' overall effectiveness,"
Eilene Ribbens is facing felony charges, after prosecutors say she admitted to lying to a pharmacy, illegally purchasing pet meds, and handing them out to family members.
"It clearly states in the employee manual, that if you have been charged with or falsifying records, that is grounds for termination," said former shelter manager Carey Schur.
So far, the shelter's board is standing by their director. A criminal complaint says Ribbens told police she gave the meds to family members who could not afford them "out of the kindness of her heart."
It's a move this group says is causing people to lose faith in a place that does a lot of good for the community.
"I've heard they don't want to donate money," former Executive Director Tammy Harris said.
"We need to make a positive change in the shelter and she needs to step down," said volunteer Rochelle Drews.
Ribbens is banned from the shelter as part of a bail agreement, but holds her position.
This group met Saturday morning to ask the community to not give up on the humane society.
A tough decision they say, each day the executive director, remains on the job.
"It's really going to hurt the shelter, it's going to hurt the animals, that we are supposed to be protecting," said Harris.
Ribbens is due back in court next week.
