Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 10/31/19

Congrats to Harley who was adopted last week after 4 1/2 years at the shelter. She was adopted by Miltie, a veteran Hi Tor volunteer, and she’s doing great!

This handsome 10 years-young guy is Milton. He has quickly won the hearts of staff and volunteers alike. He was brought in as a stray and appeared to have been outside for quite a while. When he came in, he was full of ticks, but after our staff cleaned him up and a vet visit, Milton is now doing great. He needs some leash walking skills and he knows some basic commands but, he’s quite a sweetie. Milton wants to live out his days as an only pet. Due to his strength, a home with teenagers twelve and up would be best.

Sosa is a lovable Great Dane/ Dogo mix. Sosa thinks he’s a 15-pound lap dog that just so happens to easily reach your face for kisses. He’s seven years-old who was found by the police as a stray. He was brought to a local vet and checked out because he was malnourished and very, very skinny. His chip was registered to a person in Pennsylvania who sold him on Craigslist, so we have no idea how he ended up in Rockland! Sosa is great with people and kids. He is extra-large but very gentle. He would need a meet-and-greet with any other dogs but could not live with cats.

Soltan is a two- to three-year-old mutt. Handsome with his five o’clock shadow, this young pup is active and fun. He is working on his leash walking skills and knows some basic commands. He is especially distracted by our resident cats, and that means he needs a cat-free household. This handsome guy will be a great companion with a little consistency, training and structure. Come rescue Soltan, he will be the best friend one could ask for.

For more information on Milton, Sosa or Soltan please email Doug at doug@hitor.org. To apply for adoption visit www.hitor.org.

Check out this 8 ½ year-old group of kittens! They are all currently in foster care. Atticus is an 8 1/2 week-old kitten who is very energetic and the most outgoing of the group. He’s very social and very curious and not afraid of anything! Scout is very nurturing to her siblings, she is like the mama of the group. She is a born leader and the most curious. Scout is always the first to investigate. Radley is very energetic, and like any kitten he should be, but he can also be very shy, as well. He takes a bit to warm up to you. He loves to sit and watch his siblings play and roughhouse.

Please email Kristine at Kristine@hitor.org for an application or you can download one from hitor.org.  Once approved, we can schedule a meet-and-greet.

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 10/24/19

For info on any of these kittens please email Kristine@hitor.org.

SHELLY: A super-sweet little girl who came into foster care with a severe illness which left her with a permanent loss of vision in one eye, but that doesn’t stop her from being the most inquisitive and super-curious kitten of her litter mates. She doesn’t want to miss a thing and will follow you everywhere hoping to find something new and exciting to explore.  She loves people and being held even more!  One of her favorite places to be is on her foster mom’s shoulders while hugging her head.
HEWEY: This little guy is a certified lap kitten, happiest with company (human or kitten), he doesn’t like being by himself.  Playful, smart, inquisitive, he’s another happy go lucky, well-socialized kitten in this happy bunch.
CARNY: This little girl is very loving and care-free. She loves to play with her littermates, but she is also ok being by herself. She’s a champion cuddler, but something may catch her attention and off she goes to a new adventure! Carny will follow her favorite human around the house, she’s definitely a follower, not a leader.
CARLY: This little girl is the best-est snuggle bunny of them all.  She would love to sit in your lap for hours.  She’s the sweetest little thing who can’t wait to climb into your arms for an all-day snuggle fest.
DAVEY: Davey foster’s mom is not embarrassed to gush over this little guy. There’s no other place he’d rather be than in her arms being carried around.  He’s a smart little guy who follows his foster mom everywhere. He’s a guaranteed purrrrr machine, his little motor starts the moment she comes into their room.  He doesn’t mind the family dog and enjoys the company of anyone who pays any attention to him.
DEWEY: Another super-loving, super social, super playful little boy who seeks the company of others.  Dewey loves being held and carried around. This docile little guy would do best being adopted with a littermate – double the love, double the fun!!!

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 10/17/19

Kandi and Kane are 15-month-old sibling pups who have only been at the shelter about two weeks. They were surrendered together after their owner could no longer care for them. They are sweet, gentle and calm especially for their age. They take treats very nicely and love to play together outside. However, they are both stressed and are having a very hard time adjusting to shelter life. We would love to keep them together since they have been together since they were born.

Teddy is a 2-year-old shepherd mix who was surrendered to us in May 2019. He is a playful pup who has done well with other friendly dogs in his old home but will chase cats if given the chance. He is looking for a home with older teens (16+) or adults. He is house-trained and knows most of his commands. Please share Teddy so we can find him a great family.

All Storm wants is some love from her very own family who loves her. She promises she will adore you. Storm is a two-year-old terrier mix. She was brought to Hi Tor from a very kind vet. She had a urinary tract infection and had not been spayed and her owner decided there was something wrong and they didn’t want her. She would benefit from an experienced dog owner and someone who wants to stay active with her. Storm is super affectionate and loves sitting next to her favorite people. Email Doug@hitor.org for more info about Kandi, Kane, Teddy or Storm.

Reece is a six-year-old female cat who was surrendered back in August because her owner could no longer care for her. Reece is a gorgeous cat who loves to be pet and enjoys human attention. She does not like other cats so she would need to be the only cat in the house. Stop by this weekend and meet her.

Tom is a cat who has been through a lot. He was found in a box at the top of the shelter driveway. It took him awhile to trust our staff but now he is the sweetest most lovable cat. He cannot get enough of pets and ear scratches. We estimate his age to be about four-years-old and he would need a meet and greet with any other cats. For more info on Reece and Tom please email amber@hitor.org.

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 10/10/19

The face that melts your heart is Arlo. She is 2 to 3 years-old and her eyes will melt your soul while her flopping jowls will make you laugh. Arlo is a bit shy at first but warms up quickly to her human friends. She enjoys the companionship of other dogs with a proper meet and greet. She would do best in a home with teens and adults. 

This handsome guy is Blu. Blu is approximately two to three-years old. Blu is a strong handsome guy who is looking for an experienced owner. His favorite game to play is fetch and he knows his basic commands. Once Blu finds his people his heart is devoted wholly to you. Blu would thrive in a home with adults and no cats. 

Handsome Cody is one to two years old. He came in very afraid, but, is adjusting nicely. He is a bit fearful at first but he has a gentle way of warming up to everyone. Cody is house-trained. He is going to be one happy dog when he goes home, and we believe some of that fear will subside. The shelter can be a scary place for some pups. And from what we can see, this guy is going to be a great part of a family when his family comes and finds him. 

Cooper has the cutest expression. That look in the photo is the one he’s always giving, like “hoomans, really?” One to two-years-old, Cooper is afraid at the shelter but is slowly adjusting. He is extra-sensitive to noise and prefers a slow approach. With that kind of way about you, he will certainly love you. He likes everyone who gives him the time to come to them on his own terms. 

Corgi alert!!! Rambo is our newest pup. He loves everyone. His favorite thing to do is play ball, he will fetch and bring it back to you. He gets excited for his walks and has loved everyone he meets. We believe Rambo will be a great part of any kind of family, kids or teens. 

Sosa is a lovable Great Dane-Dogo mix. Sosa thinks he’s a 15-pound lap dog that just so happens to easily reach your face for kisses. Sosa is a 7-year-old Great Dane mix who was found by the police as a stray. He was brought to a local vet and checked out because he was malnourished and very skinny. His chip was registered to a person in Pennsylvania who sold him on Craigslist, so we have no idea how he ended up in Rockland! Sosa is great with people and kids. He is extra-large but very gentle. He would need a meet and greet with any other dogs but could not live with cats. For more information on Sosa, Arlo, Blu, Cody, Cooper or Rambo please email Doug@hitor.org.

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 9/19/19

Nova has been at the shelter for a long time. She is one of our special dogs who has been listed as a “Rescue Only” because she has been returned for guarding her favorite human. Nova is a gorgeous terrier mix who would make a single person with a quiet home a great companion. She likes other dogs and gets along with cats. Her only issue is her overwhelming attachment to just one person in the family. If you think you could make Nova your furry partner in life, we would love to see her get her second chance.

Syre is a 4 year-old goofy meatball who just needs to find the right fit for him. He is gentle, happy and has an equally-balanced personality between playful and calm. He doesn’t mind other friendly dogs but does get nervous around some men. Once there is a proper introduction, he becomes a lovable squishy face. He would do best in a home with older teens or adult couple.

Soltan is new to the shelter. He is three years old and was surrendered about a week ago because his family moved. He is friendly and playful. He would love a family with no other pets but kids over 10 would be great! He still needs some leash training here but would be a great dog for the right family! Email Doug@hitor.org to meet Nova, Syre or Soltan.

Harry is a long haired tabby who is about 9-10 weeks old. He was a little difficult when he came to stay with his foster mom. He spit and hissed for the first day. His foster had to syringe-feed him. He is the smallest of the bunch. He just learned to go up and down the stairs. He is now happy-go-lucky Harry. He also loves to love bite on your fingers. If you are interested in Harry email Kristine@hitor.org.

Linus is a 15 month old male cat. He is very sweet but can be a bit shy. He loves to play and has lived with other cats and a dog before!

Get ready to fall in love with this face! Fawn is a female cat who is about 2 years old. She is very sweet playful and loving. She likes other cats but would need to be tested with dogs. If you are interested in Linus or Fawn please email Amber@hitor.org.

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 9/12/19

Miracle is our Christmas miracle. We are closed to the public on Christmas day. But Miracle showed up and we happily opened our doors to save her. She was brought to us as a stray. Like many of the dogs who come through our doors, we hear stories and learn more from neighbors or friends after people begin seeing the dog brought into the shelter. From what we understand weeks earlier Miracle was left tied to a tree for hours until her owners came back. The fact is we are so happy this beautiful little soul is now safe and can find her forever home that will love and dote on her as she so deserves. She is around two years old. This bouncy girl would benefit from a home with structure. She like to learn new tricks and when she is rewarded with a tasty treat. Miracle is house trained and would be most comfortable in a home with a single adult, so she only has one person to call her own. Miracle would be a great apartment or condo dog as long as she gets a few walks each day.  

Tonka is a new dog to the shelter. He was brought in as a stray with another small dog. His owner called and no longer wanted them. Tonka lived with two other small dogs but is not good with cats. He is a goofy, good natured dog who can be quite chatty when he sees his favorite staff member in the morning. He is happiest when he is with people and in the pool. He loves water and chunky chew toys. Stop by and meet this handsome guy. You will just love his smile.

This handsome guy is Coco, He is a three-year-old terrier mix. Coco was brought to the shelter as an owner surrender. Coco is a loving, active guy. He loves going on long walks and is quite playful. He loves to run and check out his surroundings when he is let into our pens. Coco needs to live in a home without cats and due to his activity level, older children. But he lived with a small dog in the past and has done well with friendly dogs here at the shelter. Coco is quite affectionate and loves humans. With someone who is willing to set boundaries and consistent training for this love, he will be a dream dog. If you are interested in Miracle, Tonka or Coco please email Doug@hitor.org.

Bella is super energetic 8 week-old kitten and loves to run around and play. She is so friendly and loves to be pet and cuddled. She is so sweet and ready to meet you. 

Peanut is also 8 weeks old and loves playing. She’s very friendly and gets along with her sisters and brother so well. She is such a sweetheart and she loves to be cuddled and kissed. 

Luna is a friendly, very cuddly kitten. She is such a mush. She loves being held and kissed but she also loves playing. Whether it’s with her toys or her siblings she always has so much fun. All of the kittens are in foster care so please email Amber@hitor.org for more info.

Milton was brought in as a stray and appeared to have been outside for quite a while. When he came in, he was full of ticks but, after our staff cleaned him up and after a vet visit, Milton is now doing great with us. Milton needs some leash walking skills but, is quite a sweetie. He knows some basic commands. Milton wants to live out his days as an only pet. Due to his strength, a home with teenagers fifteen and up would be the best fit.

Hennessy is a 7-year-old female Rottweiler. She is super sweet with humans. Hennessey is easy to walk on a leash and knows many of her commands. She was on hold for a while because she has a large bump that the staff was scared was serious. The vet gave her a clean bill of health. It’s only a calcification. She promises she is an amazing girl who will be a great addition to your family. She would need to be the only pet. Hennessey is currently in foster care and is not at the shelter.

Roxie is a 4-year-old snow white and tan bully mix who came to the shelter in April 2017 as a surrender after her family moved and could not take her with them. She lived with four children of all ages in her previous home but because she has been at the shelter for so long, we would recommend children over 12 now. She is a bit fearful of strangers and quick movements towards her. She is a calm and polite dog who likes to walk and sniff the grass with her favorite volunteers. She would do great in a calm home where she could relax and decompress but also still get outside to explore and play with her favorite toys. Roxie has lived with other animals in the past but a meet and greet would be necessary.

Sterling is a 4-year-old stunningly handsome bully breed mix who came to the shelter as a stray from Pearl River. He has been at the shelter for almost 18 months. He needs a place to run and play. He loves water and is the first one to dive into our doggie pools during the summer. He would need a disciplined owner with teens and older who will correct any negative behavior and redirect him if he starts to get overexcited with his leash or toys. Sterling should be the only pet.

Sparky is a 3 year-old male brindle bully terrier mix who came to the shelter as a stray as a one year old pup. He was adopted pretty quickly but due to an eviction his owner had to sadly bring him back. Sparky should be the only pet in the home and he starts off shy and a bit timid so that’s why we feel he would do best with older kids who can give him the time he needs to open up. He loves to run and catch tennis balls and roll in the grass. He would make a great adventure partner for young person or couple. For more info on Sparky Milton, Roxie, Sterling or Hennessey please email Doug@hitor.org.

Who doesn’t love a good Meatball? He is 2 years old kitty cat and so cute! He is good with other cats and has really started to come out of his shell. Meatball is ready for a home of his own! He would need some time and understanding but will be so greatful to be in a home. Email Amber@hitor.org.

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 8/29/19

Coco is a three year-old terrier mix. Coco was brought to us as an owner surrender. Coco is a loving active guy. He loves going on long walks and is quite playful. He loves to run and check out his surroundings when he is let into our pens. Coco has a high prey drive and cannot live in a home with cats. Due to his activity level, older children would be a great fit. Coco is quite affectionate and loves humans. With someone who is willing to set boundaries and consistent training for this love, he will be a dream dog.

All Storm wants is some love from her very own family who loves her. We promise she will adore you. Storm is a two year-old medium sized terrier mix. She was brought to Hi Tor from a very kind vet. She had a urinary tract infection and had not been spayed so her owner decided there was something wrong and they didn’t want her. Now, it takes Storm some time to warm up to new people, but she is a now a runner with the Dog Trotters and her personality has really started to shine through. She is much better walking on the leash but will run after anything furry things that moves so the nice people here believe that she can’t live with cats. She would benefit from an experienced dog owner and someone who wants to stay active with her.

Handsome Riley is about 4 1/2 years old and came to the shelter as a stray on May 22, 2016. That’s 3 long years at the shelter. Riley is quite a goofball. He absolutely loves his people! He does do silly things and is a quirky guy but is deserving to find a home with people who understands him and his silliness. Riley is house-trained, leash trained and neutered. He loves being around people and we think he would be a couch potato when he gets into a home. For more info on Coco, Storm or Riley please email Doug@hitor.org.

Linus is a handsome 15 month-old male cat who was surrendered when he was reacting to the dog in the house by spraying where the dog had been. Linus is a magnificent black cat with a white diamond design on his forehead. He is friendly and personable cat who would do great in a family without dogs.

Maxx is a regal 9 month-old male who was surrendered to the shelter back in April. He sadly was not able to stay with his owner due to landlord issues. He is a large cat who would be so grateful to have a home of his own!

Fawn is a sweet 2 year-old female cat who is very new to the shelter. She was left outside as a stray when her owners moved away. The neighbors tried to take care of her but she was not safe so they brought her to the shelter. For more info on Linus, Maxx or Fawn please email Amber@hitor.org

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 8/1/19

The more we get to know Pumba, the more we fall in love. Pumba is a young male dog who was sadly found tied to a tree by his leash in our driveway. He walks nicely on a harness and is learning his manners. He has a very soft, coat and chocolatey coloring with soft eyes and a big smiley face. Pumba deserves to find a home who will love him and keep him safe forever. For more info on Pumba email Doug@hitor.org.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this sweet face every day? Shelby is a spunky girl dog with lots of love to give. She came in as a stray and is a young girl with her whole life ahead of her. Shelby is a smart girl who has mastered “sit” and is eager to learn more. Shelby appreciates time to adapt to new places and would do especially well with adults and teens. She would need a meet-and-greet with any other dogs in the home.

Tonka is new to the shelter. This dog was brought in with another small dog. His owner called and no longer wanted them. Tonka lived with two other small dogs but is not good with cats. He is a goofy, good-natured dog who can be quite chatty when he sees his favorite staff member in the morning. He is happiest when he is with people and in the pool. He loves water and chunky chew toys. Stop by and meet this handsome guy. You will just love his smile. For more info on Tonka email Doug@hitor.org.

Bailey is a 5 year-old beautiful calico and she’s has waited long enough for her forever family! She is the longest resident at the Annex but we think today is her day!! Bailey is a sweet cat who loves to bask in the sunlight and enjoys being brushed and pet. But, she needs some time to learn that you are her friend. She would thrive in a home with a patient, loving adopter who will give her time to open up and adjust in her new environment. She can be shy around unfamiliar people, but once she gets to know you she is eager to call you one of her best friends! She’ll make an amazing companion for someone who likes to enjoy life’s quiet moments. Bailey is not at the shelter. To meet Bailey please email Nixie at Gentlesouls@aol.com.

Daisy came in last summer at only 7 weeks old, sadly she was the only survivor of her litter.  After 3 months of continued care, there were few signs of improvement, she remained so lethargic she needed to be taken into foster care. Daisy showed immediate improvement, however, her need to remain on antibiotics was clear.  After months of diagnostic blood work, it has been determined that Daisy has a chronic low grade infection that flares up in times of stress. You’d never know it however, seeing her zoom around the annex and walk on her leash!!!   This little girl may remain a special needs baby, however, our hope is that she will outgrow her need to be on regular courses of antibiotics. Daisy is a tiny girl, her growth a bit stunted but that only adds to her charm.  She is a very confident little orange cat weighing in at a little over 5 lbs.  Orange cats are usually male, but Daisy is no common girl!  She gets along very well with other cats and loves to be held and petted.  If you would like to meet Daisy please email Nixie at gentlesouls@aol.com to schedule a meet and greet.  She is being fostered in New City, she is not at the shelter. 

Hi Tor’s Adoptable Pets – 7/25/19

After 4 1/2 years at the shelter and 6 weeks of Board & Train – it is with great joy that we announce our Cosmo is ready for her forever home and is now AVAILABLE for adoption!!! Cosmo is a 5-year-old black lab mix who came to the shelter as a 7-month-old puppy with fear and guarding issues. Cosmo is looking for a family to call her own. She gets along great with other dogs (no cats). She is house trained, leash trained with amazing recall, doesn’t chew anything and is very obedient. She is loving, affectionate and calm. She is currently staying with Master Trainer Frank while she awaits her new home. He and his staff have offered to assist Cosmo’s new family with in-home training or assistance as necessary. Please email Doug@hitor.org with questions and PLEASE SHARE so we can find Cosmo her forever home.

Nathan is a pudgy little Chihuahua mix and was found about two weeks ago running loose near the Mount Ivy Diner in Pomona. He waited and waited but no one ever came for him. We believe he is between 4-6 years old. He seems to get along with other friendly dogs his size. He will be cat tested this week. He is on a portion-controlled diet and is getting lots of exercise. Nathan will be neutered and then he will be ready for his new family!

Teddy is a 2-year-old shepherd mix who was surrendered to us about two weeks ago. He is a playful pup who has done well with other friendly dogs in his old home but will chase cats if given the chance. He is looking for a home with older teens (16+) or adults. He is house-trained and knows most of his commands. Please share Teddy so we can find him his forever home soon. For more info please email Doug@hitor.org!

This is our handsome Riley. He is about 4 1/2 years old and came to the shelter as a stray on May 22, 2016. That’s three long years at the shelter. Riley is quite a goofball. He absolutely loves his people! He does do silly things and is a quirky guy but is deserving to find a home with people who understands him and his silliness. Riley is house-trained, leash trained and neutered. He loves being around people and we think he would be a couch potato when he gets into a home.

Sparky is a 3-year-old male brindle bully terrier mix who came to the shelter as a stray as a one-year old pup. He was adopted quickly but due to an eviction his owner had to sadly bring him back. Sparky should be the only pet in the home, and he starts off shy and a bit timid so that’s why we feel he would do best with older kids who can give him the time he needs to open up. But once he gets to know and trust you, he is a sweet pup. He loves to run and catch tennis balls and roll in the grass. He would make a great adventure partner for young person or couple.

We have one little rabbit still at the shelter. All the others are in foster homes. Little Britta is a four-month-old female mini Dutch mix. Please consider fostering Britta so that she can be out of the noisy shelter, and into a cool home. We will provide you with a cage and supplies. Please email us at Hitorbunnytrail@gmail.com.
