LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The director of the J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter in Jeffersonville, Ind. has resigned, according to a press release from the city's mayor.
Sarah Green announced her resignation Thursday morning. That resignation takes effect on May 1.
"It's been an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Jeffersonville," Green wrote in the release. "I am proud of the shelter as it is today. This wasn't an easy decision. But I want to spend more time with my family."
Green has held the position since Jan. 1, 2012.
Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore accepted Green's resignation reluctantly, according to the news release.
"Sarah has done an outstanding job for the city," he wrote. "Her hard work and devotion is obvious. It will be difficult to replace her...her talents and energy will be greatly missed. I'm sure Sarah will continue to be involved at the shelter because of her devotion to animals."
Moore said he will begin immediately to search for Green's replacement.
"My goal is to find someone just as committed as Sarah," he said. "He or she will have some big shoes to fill."
