WEST NYACK, NY – As Rockland’s sole open admission care center, Hi-Tor Animal Care Center (Hi-Tor) delivers a unique and fundamental service to the animals and people of the County. As they move along amid kitten season, a time of year when there is a dramatic increase in the birth of kittens, the community engagement from caring individuals becomes even more important.
To help Hi-Tor reduce overcrowding, Palisades Center is hosting Hi-Tor’s Kitten Adoption Palooza. A one-day event where families can visit to meet a perfect furry friend. The event will take place on Saturday, June 26 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm in the East Court on Level One near H&M. In addition, raffle tickets and Hi-Tor merchandise will be available for purchase.
Adoption applications can be filled out and submitted in advance of the event by visiting www.hitor.org.
“We’re happy to help Hi-Tor in their mission to find loving homes for these kittens and look forward to a successful event,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center.
“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at the Palisades Center for a very successful adoption event during this very busy kitten season,” said Debbie DiBernardo, President of Hi-Tor Animal Care Center. “As a progressive animal welfare organization with innovative footsteps, we recognize how important community partnerships are to meeting our mission, and this type of collaboration hugely embodies that.”
