4-5-13 PETS OF THE WEEKposted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday April 4th 10:30pm
Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh My! The Beverly Animal Shelter may not have any lions or bears, but they definitely have a wide array of (domesticated) Tigers. These sweet feline, purr-machines are raring (not roaring) to go find their purrfect home.
ZANEY & KATARINA - Unclaimed strays who arrived in February, these 2 lovely ladies may be related or they may not. They simply are two sweet girls. Do you need a mouser?
Well then, light brown Tiger, Zaney is the girl for you. Currently estimated to be 6 months old, she is a playful love with beautiful golden eyes. Zaney does have an unusual tail.
On the other hand, shy, grey Tiger, Katarina is looking for a quiet loving home where she will feel secure. Golden-eyed Katarina is thought to be around 2 years old. The girls are up to date on their vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
An unclaimed lovable stray, petite, brown Tiger, Chevy is estimated to be about 8 months old. She is a bit shy and is looking forward to finding a calm, forever home. Delightful Chevy is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
A big hunk of tiger love, black Tiger Erik is looking for a warm lap in which to cuddle. A dark brown and black Tiger, Erik has definite stripes on his right side but on his left side his “stripes” appear to break into spots. Erik is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Cali II and Piper are happy to announce that they have been adopted together. Toyota is announcing her adoption while she left her sister, Honda behind at the Shelter. Also waiting at the Shelter are lovely Bess and her son, Truman.

WONDERFUL NEWS!! THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER WAS RECENTLY AWARDED A GRANT BY THE ASPCA TO REINSTITUE THE LOW-COST SPAY AND NEUTER VOUCHER PROGRAM. PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER AT 539-9357 FOR MORE INFORMATION. THANK YOU SO MUCH ASPCA!
Special Thanks go out to Kathleen Robson for her generosity in thinking of the Beverly Animal Shelter as a candidate for the Monsanto Grant. It is much appreciated!
Winter may be over (or so we hope), however, along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will continue to be closed on Wednesdays.
The Board of Directors of the Beverly Animal Shelter is working hard to give you all the information you need to properly take care of your pet. If you have visited the Shelter website at http://www.beverlyanimalshelteronline.com/index.html you may have noticed the new topics of Important Pet and Animal Info and Low Cost Spay and Neuter. The topics are well covered and soon, much more information will be added.
Winter might be on its way out, but Kitten Season will soon be here! The Shelter is overflowing with cats of ALL AGES and they are in desperate need of cat food and cat litter! To help these needy felines find homes, for a limited time Dallyn is offering the adoption fee of $10 for any cat 6 years of age or older. Now folks, this is quite the deal. Cats can live to age 20. That means you can obtain a vaccinated and spayed/neutered feline for the bargain price of only $10. In addition, you can have live-in Mouse Protection! What a deal!! Why not choose 2?!
Don’t let the snow or mud deter you from getting some playtime with your favorite canine. The Dave Pullen Memorial Dog Park at the Beverly Animal Shelter is open Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm. It is located on the front center grounds at the Shelter and has a double-gated entrance. It is free to the public (though the Shelter always appreciates any donations!), but we do require you to stop by the shelter staff (at the store) to show proof of rabies and distemper vaccinations. We want everyone, including your dog safe! We also ask that you please clean up after your dog. Come on out and give your pup a chance to run off lead in a safe and enclosed environment!
THANK YOU FOR THE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE PAST YEAR!!
Do you have some old, no longer used electronics (like grandma’s old scanner and your old cell phone)? The Beverly Animal Shelter now has a permanent Electronics Recycling Drop-off container located right at the Shelter. Provided by 2trg., the Shelter will receive money for old electronic equipment.
Also, remember that the Shelter always takes donations of scrap metal to recycle, as well as, returnable bottles and cans. For more information, call the Shelter at (315)539-9357.
SHELTER NEEDS –
Thankfully, Dallyn is happy to announce that the Town of Tyre has joined Interlaken, Romulus and the Town of Waterloo in setting limits on the number of dogs one individual can own. Now, for the rest of Seneca County…
The Beverly Animal Shelter is preparing for this year’s Kitten Season! To help out, please go to www.FirstGiving.com/bas. Or, stop by the Shelter and adopt a kitten or two. Better yet, adopt an adult cat in need of a real home!
Please keep in mind when you enter the Shelter grounds, to adhere to the 5mph speed limit. A very sweet but deaf cat that had lived at the shelter for 17 years was killed because someone sped through the drive.
Dallyn, along with the ASPCA, would like to remind all cat owners of the importance (after spay and neutering) of cat collars (safety or breakaway) with proper identification for outdoor cats. The Shelter is overwhelmed by “found” but unclaimed cats. The hope of the Shelter is to be able to reunite the lost felines with their owners. Many types of collars are available for cats. Please see Dallyn for more information.
Please, if you have lost your dog or cat, DO CALL the shelter. Do not wait for an advertisement of “found dog/cat” to appear in the newspaper.
The Purina Pets for Seniors Fund has been replenished for 2013. Thank you Purina.
Please be a responsible pet owner. Spay and neuter your pets to prevent more unwanted animals. ONLY YOU can prevent the overflow of kittens that begins each Spring and carries on into the Fall.
