Stop the killings at HI Tor Animal Care Center

This petition had 714 supporters

 I am a Rockland resident and taxpaper for many years and have seen Hi Tor Animal Care Center go from a high kill shelter to a low kill and now I am seeing it climb back to being a high kill shelter again . I want the  unnecessary killings of adoptable dogs stopped,and adoptions increased. Ed Day please stand up to the board at Hi Tor Animal Care Center and stop the unnecessary killings of innocent adoptable dogs.


Recently 6 dogs were killed in 1 week at Hi Tor .These dogs were nice dogs , some were even "Pet of the Week". These dogs were Emma Lou Marisol, Izzy, Conner, Smokey, and Guiness.There  are many more , we suspect they  are  euphenizing 1 or 2 a month  sometimes more.

We the people of Rockland do not want our tax dollars supporting a high kill policy at Hitor . Unnecssary euthanasia must be stopped.Many of the dedicated volunteers that held adoption events like the Hi Tor 3 Miler and Adoption event,and Cutts for Mutts have been let go,despite the sucess of these events.Many other fundraisers and adoption events have been halted because of personality conflicts between the board and volunteers.

The board seems only to be concerned that they will be sued, and have cut way back on adoptions and adoption events.

 Please sign this petition to show the board at Hi Tor Shelter that you care about adoptions and are concerned about unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable dogs. We the taxpayers of Rockland will not stand by idle and watch the county shelter turn high kill again.
