MADISON COUNTY, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

Several people have been protesting in Madison County after the animal control center euthanized multiple dogs.

The reason they're upset is because the dogs had spots at a shelter waiting for them.

The issue will be discussed Wednesday evening at the county board meeting.

Among those speaking at the meeting are the directors of two no-kill shelters in Madison County.

One of them, called Partners for Pets, had already agreed to take the five dogs, and found out they had been euthanized the day they went to pick them up.

The other shelter, the Madison County Humane Society, said two of the dogs were registered and microchipped.

The two shelters hope that those who euthanized the dogs will be held accountable following Wednesday's meeting.

Madison County just passed a no-kill resolution to be in place by 2021.

If nothing comes of the issue of the euthanized dogs, the shelters do hope it will push for the no-kill resolution to be put in place faster.

Stay tuned to News 4 as we continue to follow this story.
