Rockland County Executive Ed Day released a statement early this morning announcing that the county signed a letter of intent with Hi Tor Animal Care Center to build a new shelter at the existing location in Pomona. The letter of intent states that the structure used as a shelter now will be demolished turned into the parking lot for the new building. According to Day the agreement between the County and the care center will help increase adoptions while improving conditions for the average 2,500 animals that pass through looking for homes each year and he and other members of county government look forward to “continuing to work with Hi Tor President Lizanne Fiorentino and her Board of Directors to increase adoptions, save more lives, and prevent animal suffering.” The agreement uses Chapter 212, which allows the county to have a say in the rules and regulations of an animal care organization, and states the construction will require Legislative approval.
