Martin Roebuck said she looks forward to continuing Downey's work in leading the shelter for 36 years.

During that time, Downey established the Pieloch Pet Adoption Center, introduced an early-age spay/neuter program in the state and worked with state Sen. Don Wesely to make dog and cock fighting a felony in Nebraska.
