Hi Tor Animal Care Center Awarded Grant

Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski announced in a press release on Friday evening that he secured a grant from New York state providing Hi Tor Animal Care Center with $500,000 to build a new shelter for the animals. According to Zebrowski he worked hard for the cause, which is close to him and his adopted pitbull, and the grant can be added to nearly $300,000 raised in private donations over the years. The shelter’s board President Lizanne Fiorentino praised the grant on behalf of the shelter and it’s staff, stating that now the new shelter is more than a hope, and the process can officially begin. The Assemblyman stated about Hi Tor, “Being Rockland’s only animal shelter the community deserves a quality facility that better meets the needs of the animals.” In 2014 County Government allowed Hi Tor to use additional land at their current site, where the building is located that was built in 1973 and is too small for the 2,000 animals it houses a year.
