Rebuild Hi-Tor Sets First Volunteer Meeting at Nanuet HS

The meeting is Tuesday, October 2nd at 7:30 p.m at the Nanuet HS Auditorium

The Rebuild Hi-Tor effort is touring around Rockland to spread awareness and gain support. After stopping in Clarkstown and Orangetown, they're moving on to the other Rockland towns and villages, with the Stony Point meeting coming up next.

In an attempt to save Hi Tor Animal Care Center, Rockland County’s only animal shelter, several members of the public teamed up with Hi-Tor to form a plan to save the shelter. Franchino revealed the that he’s spearheading, which is raise funds to build a  three times the size of the previous one. 

After reaching out to the public, Rebuild Hi-Tor announced an important meeting at the Auditorium on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. 

"It is at that meeting that volunteers will be gathered together and committees will be organized. Donald Franchino, Roberta Bangs, Arlene Kahn and other volunteers will be there to answer any questions," according to the rebuild effort. "Please plan on attending so that the next stages of this Rebuild movement can progress."

More information can be found at the Rebuild Hi-Tor website or in their newsletter, which is attached to this article as a PDF. 

The next meeting for Town Rebuild Hi-Tor will stop in is Stony Point: Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Kirkbride Hall, 5 Patriot Hills Dr, Stony Point, NY

How about the people that work and volunteer at the shelter start submitting these adoptable animals to Patch, The Journal News, Our Town and the Rockland County Times so they can get some much needed exposure.

The best way to see if one wants to volunteer now is to attend the meeting. There are certainly many positive and constructive ways to help the effort now if one is truly devoted to animal welfare in Rockland County going forward.

Beyond funds and publicity, REbuild is seeking volunteers for needed services and experts in the building trades once the hopeful new construction for a new building is underway. Sounds like some folks might fit that to a tee, past "mistakes" not withstanding!

The shelter is being mismanaged and no wants to do anything to address why there are so many problems. The place needs to be swept clean and all the positions need to be re-filled with properly screened, competent and qualified staff.
