She says she was fired from work because they didn't want to pay her medical bills. And her employees at the Franklin County Humane Society say that couldn't be farther from the truth.
19-year-old Beth Wallace had a car wreck earlier this month. A board member then came to her home, sat at her bedside, and delivered her pink slip in person.
Former Franklin County Humane Society employee Beth Wallace got into a bad wreck July 4th. She says she broke her pelvic bone and her arm in two places. For Wallace, the worst of the pain came days after she left the hospital, when the board president visited her home.
"And I just cried, like, hysterically cried," said Wallace, as she described being fired, "it was never an eight to five job for me. It was my heart, it was my passion, and it was really my life. I put so much hard work in that place."
"I realize that the manner in which I handled this was an error in judgment. I've apologized to Ms. Wallace and explained to her the real story behind her termination," explained Franklin County Humane Society Board President Sam Marcus.
Monday night, the Franklin County Humane Society Board of Directors will meet to make a decision involving Marcus's request to resign.
Wallace's friends have started a petition online, asking that the entire board be reprimanded. You can visit the site by clicking on the link below -
