Hi-Tor Animal Care at risk of shutdown due to funding
Directors of the Hi-Tor Animal Care Center in Pomona made a desperate plea for more funding to local lawmakers yesterday to prevent an impending shutdown due to a lack of financial support.
"Last year we raised over $110,000 in donations, but with salaries and utilities and basic care of the animals, we should not have to depend on the kindness of strangers," said Hi-Tor Board of Directors President Roberta Bangs.
Bangs added that if they don't get more money over the course of the next year, they will likely be forced to shut down. To learn more about the shelter or how to donate, click here.
