About Hi Tor Animal Shelter

Founded in 1973, Hi-Tor Animal Care Center is the only animal care and control shelter in Rockland County, and takes in approximately 2500 animals each year. They offer a variety of programs that are beneficial to the community and occasional training programs for pet owners and volunteers.


The mission of Hi-Tor Animal Care Center is to preserve and improve animal life, to promote responsible pet adoption and ownership, and to provide humane treatment for all animals in our care.


Hi-Tor Animal Care Center is committed to acquiring a state-of-the-art facility, on a dedicated campus, to provide the highest standard of care to sheltered animals and to promote responsible pet ownership through education.

The greatness of a Nation can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.
