HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The president of the board of directors of the Grand Strand Humane Society announced her resignation during a Wednesday night meeting.

At the start of the meeting, there was a motion from one board member to remove president Elena Nicholas. She then said she would resign instead and walked out of the building.

Carol Wallauer took over as president immediately after Nicholas' resignation. A second board member also announced her resignation.

People associated with the Grand Strand Humane Society claim Nicholas told staff members if some animals weren't moved out, they would be euthanized.

The Grand Strand Humane Society recently joined the No Kill South Carolina Coalition.

Wallauer says the future of the Grand Strand Humane Society will include positive changes.

“We want to make sure that we give every animal a chance, and a lot of these people were here for that reason," Wallauer said. "It’s upsetting to know that animals will be put down, and we are not going to allow that to happen.”

Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune was at the meeting, along with city manager John Pedersen.
