As you may know, I am volunteering in local efforts to re-build our local animal shelter, the Hi-Tor Animal Care Center, which is in desperate need of repair and is overcrowded with creatures seeking their forever home. Thanks for your support!

The mission of Hi-Tor Animal Care Center is to provide temporary care and shelter to lost, abandoned, and unwanted companion animals. In addition, we try to meet the challenge of helping both youth and adults realize and actively promote kindness to all living beings. To this end Hi-Tor receives domestic animals and provides a viable humane education program, both on and off premises. Hi-Tor Animal Care Center, Inc. has a small paid staff, with a volunteer Board of Directors, and a cadre of volunteers who work hard to make this a better world for both animals and people. Hi-Tor Animal Care Center, Inc. is a privately incorporated (501(c)3), nonprofit organization
Since 1973 Hi-Tor has served the commuity of Rockland County as an animal shelter. Since 2003 it has been the sole shelter for Rockland County's homeless animals. For several years now the fiscal calamity that our county coffers face has had severe effects on the animal shelter as funding has been slashed and the 5 towns are hard pressed to provide more funding now. This past summer the Shelter faced the possibility of closing until funds were raised by the public to keep it going a while longer.

Ok, it's in Nanuet, N.Y., a place I've been, though not for some decades. But, could not vote, probably because my system is outmoded.

Thanks for tryiing Mitchell. The center is in nearby Pomona NY--if you look this up under Hi Tor Animal Care Center in NY and exclude the town altogether I think it might work for you.

0 shelters found. Modify your search criteria and try again.

I'll flag this so I can read answer given to me. What am I doing wrong. I filled in all the information into the box and it gave me 0 shelters found. How can I vote for your shelter Cal. Others seem to be voting but I can't figure this out for some reason.

Please help, maybe my brain isn't working yet. :-( and I did have my cup of tea this morning too.

Pat B (356)

Sheryl, I left the Shelter name blank, just went to space: 'State': NY, and 'City': Pomona. It will have a prompt saying: 2 shelter(s) found, Hi-Tor is 2nd. Then you can vote.
I was having the same problem, and if you try that, you may be able to vote. I just got in for my daily vote. ;-)
