Adoptable Pets 12-29-16

These animals are looking for “Forever Homes”  — if you have room in your heart and your home contact — or give to their “Urgent Needs” List — and thanks to — Learn CPR…Be a Lifesaver!

Jackson is a 10 year old male Terrier mix who was surrendered to the shelter because he was just unwanted. Jackson is one of our special dogs who will need a special home to go to, preferably with adults only. One that is also on the quiet side with low traffic. Just somewhere this old man can live out his last few years in the comfort of a nice home.He really is just a low key kinda guy who just wants to hang out and relax. Jackson knows basic obedience and is housebroken. Jackson should also be the only pet in the house.

Mason is a 2 year old male pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter due to personal problems in his family. Mason is a strong boy so he will need someone who can handle all that muscle. He is dog selective but we believe he does get along with female’s. He has not been tested with cats at this time. He truly is a very friendly and happy big boy so we feel he would do well in a family with kids over 10, but again they will need to be able to handle this powerful boy.

Zorro is a 3 year old male American bulldog/Pitbull mix who came to the shelter as a stray. We don’t know that much about his background, but from what we’ve seen since he’s been here we know he’s a really amazing boy. Zorro is sweet, friendly, loving and very affectionate. We like to refer to him as a big mush!!!!!! He is also calm and docile. Zorro gets along with most dogs but does not get along with cats. We think he should be with kids a little older then 9-10 because even though he’s docile, he can get a bit active at times

Catsy Cline is a 2 year old female domestic short hair. She came to the shelter as a stray this summer after being found with her 6 kittens outside. All of Catsy’s kittens have been placed into homes but she is still looking for a home of her own. Other cats can make her nervous, she would be best as the only cat, or possibly with older more calm cats. Catsy would also do best in a home with teens and adults. Once she is warmed up and comfortable with you, she is very affectionate and friendly.

Josephine – is a 5-year-od female.  She is a friendly cat who enjoys attention and pets. Josephine would do best as an only pet in a home with teens and older who are experienced with owning cats. She can be shy at first, but once she warms up to you she is very sweet.

Siyha is a 1 year old female domestic short hair. She was brought to us as a stray kitten last summer. Siyah would do best in a low traffic household with teens and adults. She can be a little shy, it does take her some time to warm up to you. At this time we are unsure how she would be around dogs, but would love a home with other feline companions

Rockland Legislature Mortgage Tax Distributions

The Rockland County Legislature says a mortgage tax is collected whenever a mortgage is recorded with the County Clerk’s Office. The good news is that some of the proceeds are shared with the communities in which the property is located. The state & county each receive a portion and the County Clerk’s office receives a processing fee. Here are some of the distribution amounts for the tax collected from April through September: Clarkstown 2.4 million, Ramapo $2.2 million, Orangetown, $892,000; Haverstraw $362,000 and Stony Point $195, 000. Villages within each town get a share as well. Legislators voted 16-1 to authorize the Finance Commissioner to distribute the funds. The Rockland County Legislature’s Budget & Finance Committee will meet at 12:45 p.m. December 28 to set the 2017 tax rates. The full board will then meet to vote on adopting the rates. The meetings will be held in the Legislative Chambers at the Allison-Parris County Office Building at 11 New Hempstead Road in New City.

Engineer Who Fell Asleep Killing 4 Sues MTA $10M

William Rockefeller, the Metro-North engineer who fell asleep at the controls on the morning of December 1, 2013 causing a derailment that killed four people and injuring approximately 60 more is not only receiving $3,200 in disability pension and a federal pension but he is also suing the MTA for $10 million, arguing that the agency should have had an automatic braking system built into the train that would have slowed it down when it passed the speed limit. Due to the accident the MTA has installed protections at the Spuyten Duyvil curve where the train derailed. The speed limit is 30 mph – Rockefellar took the turn at 80 mph. (Source: The Patch)
