Two board members of It Takes a Village Canine Rescue say they were asked to resign

EVANSVILLE (WEHT) - Two board members of It Takes a Village Canine Rescue say they were asked to resign last week and the reasons why are left unanswered. 

Evansville City Council member and now-former ITV board member Missy Mosby posted on her Facebook page that she was asked to resign from the ITV board due to irreconcilable differences with the board and leadership. 

In her Facebook post she says she's “heartbroken.”

She did not want to appear on camera for an interview saying she doesn't want to hurt the shelter or its dogs. 

Eyewitness News also learned former board member Brian Buxton was also asked to resign.

Buxton said he wasn't surprised but didn't think it would happen the way it did. 

He says he wouldn't change anything about ITV but feels the board needs more balanced control

Susan Odoyo, the president of ITV, confirms both Mosby and Buxton were asked to resign but did not tell Eyewitness News why. 

In a statement she wrote, "It Takes a Village has no comment regarding the resignations of Missy Mosby and Brian Buxton. Missy served on our board for one-and-a-half years and Brian served for a year, beginning in 2017. We appreciate their service to ITV.”
