SAUK COUNTY (WKOW) -- People in Sauk County were hoping for answers Tuesday to their concerns about the way the Sauk County Humane Society is run.
The group Friends of Sauk County Animals set up another public hearing to address concerns about the shelter's euthanasia rate.
It was meant as a follow-up to the humane society's board meeting on August 19 where members of the public were forced out.
Organizers invited the shelter's board members, but none of them showed up.
Mary Harris says, "The board members I had personally sent an email. I had also hand delivered hand-written invitations and I left a voicemail for Dana Madalon herself and I never received one RSVP."
Organizers say they're compiling a list of concerns that they'll present to the county's law enforcement committee, which provides funding for animal control to the humane society.
The Sauk County Humane Society has defended its policies, saying it can't be compared to other shelters because those places have more resources, fewer intakes or different animal control contracts.
