Updated: Friday, February 7 2014, 09:47 AM CST

DANVILLE -- The Danville Humane Society is no longer providing animal control services to the city and now the city is developing a new plan to provide the service.

Earlier this week word broke that the shelter and it's director had been putting animals down without a proper license.

Now the humane society has announced two new people will act as co-directors to keep the shelter running.

In a news release the shelter explains nine of the eleven board members have resigned in the last month.

The remaining members say they are focusing on the animals already in the facility.

Shelter officials say if you have animal control issues, you'll have to go to police for now.

The humane society reports it is working with other organizations like the ASPCA and the university of Illinois to get the shelter back on track.
