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: 

     1) The shelter is open to the public by appointment only. Please call the shelter at 845-354-7900 or contact us at to make arrangements.

     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 ( 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) Beginning tomorrow 7/14/20, T.A.R.A. spay/neuter clinic will resume services and will be taking appointments directly.  Please call 845-343-1000 to make an appointment, and visit 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.
