Animal advocates and dog lovers are planning a protest from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Canyon Lake Animal Shelter Society (CLASS), 2170 Old Sattler Road.
The public is invited to join an informal coalition of residents who have warned of problems at the animal shelter since Darrell and Kelly Mayfield took it over after Angie Gilstrap resigned in June 2021.
Tensions came to a head when Vice President Kelly Mayfield texted former Kennel Manager Jennifer Thompson and instructed her to euthanize a dying puppy by sticking it in a freezer.
Since that Jan. 8 text went public on Feb. 7, CLASS has faced intense scrutiny and is currently the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO).
Parking is available at the body shop across the street from the shelter.
