MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -

A Humane Society director out of Meriden was scheduled to face a judge on Tuesday for forging a rabies certificate, according to police.

Marlena DiBianco saw her case continued.

She was arrested earlier this month.

After a number of allegations of misconduct within the Humane Society, Meriden detectives said they began investigating in April 2015.

They said they found that DiBianco forged a rabies certificate for a non-vaccinated animal which was then adopted.

The Humane Society said as far as it knows, the case involved a single animal.

It released a statement on Facebook shortly after DiBianco turned herself in to police.

'We are dedicated to these animals and do everything within our power to ensure they receive all the medical care that they are not only legally required but the care they deserve," the post said. "We would never put the lives of these animals, their adoptive families, our staff, volunteers and the community in jeopardy."

DiBianco was charged with second-degree forgery.

She was due in Meriden Superior Court.
