Serving Our Community
amid Coronavirus Disease 2019
We want to take every precaution while still continuing our mission to take care of Rockland’s homeless animals. The following protocols are being put in place in order to reduce risk to our volunteers, employees and public at large:
2) We are still accepting, and are extremely grateful for goods donations. Anyone wishing to do so is asked to please place donations in or in-front of the storage bin at the shelter's entrance. Another option is to pick an item from out Amazon Wish List (https://amzn.to/3akLuLp) and ship direct to the shelter. If you would like a tax receipt for your donations, please call ahead or let one of our staff know (from a distance) while you are here so arrangements can be made.
3) Registered volunteers are welcome to work with the cats and walk/train the dogs. However, anyone experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath or any illness, or who has been in close contact with a COVID19 positive person should not come to the shelter and should be cleared by a physician before returning to the shelter.
4) T.A.R.A. spay/neuter clinic has temporarily suspended their services. Please visit https://www.tara-spayneuter.org/ for the most up to date information.
5) The situation is fluid. We are following recommendations of the NYS Animal Protection Federation for animal shelters, as well as directives and recommendations from the CDC and County Health Dept.
If you have any questions with regard to Hi Tor, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information and updates about the pandemic please go to the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention
