PETS OF THE WEEK 1-11-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday January 10th 10:26pm
The New Year brings a time for resolutions and fresh beginnings. This week the Beverly Animal Shelter presents to you, three exceptional, young, unclaimed stray, canine ladies with hopes of finding a loving, furever home in 2013. And yours may be the one!
Estimated to be 6 months to one year of age, mostly white with a characteristic reddish brown hat, little Miss Katie is at the right age for training. She may be an exuberant Jack Russell Terrier, but Katie loves her people and wishes only to please them. She’s clean in her cage and is good with children. Katie lives for her daily walk and playtime. Up to date on her vaccinations and weighing less than 20 pounds, Katie will be spayed before adoption.
Also estimated to be 6 months to one-year-old, Black Lab mix Tootsie is looking for a family who will take her for long walks and find lots of time to play with her. Clean in her cage, Tootsie is learning the particulars of walking on a leash. Weighing about 30 pounds, spirited Tootsie is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed before adoption.
An all-around family dog with a constant waggie tail, Nonnie’s uniquely beautiful brindle coloring may be a bit intimidating, but she is a true love. Thought to be a Bassett (check out those “shorty” legs)/Healer mix and weighing in the 25 to 30 pound range, Nonnie is clean in her cage, good on a leash and loves kids. She is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed before adoption.
SHELTER NEWS -
THANK YOU FOR THE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE PAST YEAR!!
Along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will be closed on Wednesdays for the Winter.
It will soon be here. The 2013 Annual Shelter Dinner Dance will be held February 16, 2013. Get ready for some good old Rock and Roll from Rochester’s Ruby Shooz. The New York Giants have generously donated another football to be raffled. The football has been signed by the 2012 Super Bowl Winning Team! Raffle tickets are currently available at The Shelter for a $5.00 donation.
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 IS HERE! The Shelter is overflowing with cats of ALL AGES and they are in desperate need of catfood and cat litter! To help these needy felines find homes before the Winter, 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 for the upcoming months when those little critters begin their search for their Winter home!! What a deal!! Why not choose 2?!
Don’t let the snow 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!
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…
Winter has reared its ugly head and the Shelter is still dealing with the results of 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.
Regarding the Purina Pets for Seniors, do check if the funds are available this year.
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.
