PETS OF THE WEEK 1-18-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday January 17th 9:20pm
The new year may have just begun at the Beverly Animal Shelter, but last year’s leftover kittens, who are now “teenagers”, are already starting to worry. Spring will bring “Kitten Season” and the competition for homes will become fierce. Can you open your door to one or maybe even two of these young’uns who can brighten and liven your home on these dreary Winter days?
But first, sweet old Buddy, a Bichon mix, needs a foster home.
His owner has gone into the hospital and 10 to 15 pound Buddy needs a warm home with one on one companionship. Buddy is over 10 years old and does have some vision problems, but he is a clean and loving boy. Please help Buddy if you can.
No, he is not a “gust of wild fur”. Gustifer is a petit love. No one could be sweeter. Solid grey with just the slightest hint of tiger stripes, Gustifer is 6 to 8 months old. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations and waiting for you.
A buff love-bug eager for a home of his own. Estimated to be 6 to 9 months old, Hansel gets along with all and just adores people. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
A striking black and white mix, 6 to 9 month old, Ditto is a quiet boy who simply likes to observe his surroundings. Ditto gets along with other cats, is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered. He is looking forward to a quiet home.
Solid black except for his white “superman” triangular bib, Gino can be shy with people at first. But once he knows you, Gino will seek out your attention. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. Gino is hoping for a calm and quiet home.
Thought to be just over 6 months, China is a unique beauty. From a distance, this blue-eyed girl looks to be a Siamese, but on closer examination, her “Siamese” points are a Torti mix of slate gray and buff. China does not seem to have the vocal ability of the Siamese but she is definitely on the inquisitive side. Everything deserves China’s inspection. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Nonnie from last week’s canine young ladies hoping for a furever home in 2013, is happy to announce her adoption, while Katie and Tootsie remain waiting for someone like you.
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, 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 last 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.
