Hi-Tor Animal Care Center serves an important purpose in Rockland. My husband Martin Cornell, an attorney, did pro bono legal work helping Hi-Tor get its start, and it has always been close to our hearts.
The County Executive’s letter to Hi-Tor President Roberta Bangs on February 22 did not close the door on possibilities for agreement. In fact he asked her for copies of the schematic drawings of the proposed shelter which had been displayed at the meeting in my office. I will continue to work with concerned residents, Hi-Tor members, the Executive and Legislature to establish a modern animal shelter.
