The board of directors for the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Shelter says attacks against the shelter's management aren't true.
Protesters have been speaking out against the shelter since two volunteers were asked to leave. The shelter says those volunteers did not follow proper protocol when caring for the animals.
"You can listen to what people have to say but unless you really see it for yourself, you won't know what a great job we really are doing out here," said Jody Knoell, the board's vice president.
Angry volunteers say animals that can be rehabilitated are being euthanized instead. The volunteer program has also been temporarily suspended. Protesters say as a result, dogs are not being walked and are left in their cages most of the day.
