Executive Director of the Heritage Humane Society, Dana Cheek, who for months had been experiencing a decrease in morale at the shelter, was fired Tuesday by the shelter’s Board of Directors.

Reached before her firing Tuesday, Cheek said many of the allegations were being brought by “disgruntled employees,” according to the Daily Press.

Allegations against Cheek included aggressive animals not being properly screened before they were put up for adoption, and animals with serious health problems not getting proper veterinary care, according to a shelter volunteer.

Nearly 200 people became fans of a page named Save Our Shelter on the social networking site Facebook.

Posts on the Facebook page celebrated Cheek’s ousting almost immediately after employees were notified.
