PETS OF THE WEEK 1-25-13

posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday January 24th 10:31pm

We all know “mongrels” are the best dogs, but perhaps you prefer a canine with a “breed”?  Well then, it might be time to visit the Beverly Animal Shelter and meet this week’s pets.  Here are 3 distinguished canines and even one mellow fellow of a feline who has a breed of his own.

 

 

 

MILOH 

 

 1-25-13 Miloh

 

Wheaten Terrier, Miloh, was surrendered because his owner could no longer keep him.  Under one year of age, tan Miloh looks to be the original Shaggy Dog.  A bouncing baby boy who is ready for play, Miloh is eager for a home of his own.  He is a wonderful dog who gets along with all.  Miloh is clean in his kennel and not a big barker.  Weighing 25 to 30 pounds, Miloh is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.

 

 

COCHEESE 

 

 1-25-13 Cocheese

 

An imposing Black and tan German Shepherd, Cocheese is all talk and a shy boy at heart.  He was surrendered due to medical issues.  Cocheese arrived at the Shelter weighing only 30 pounds.  Cared for by BAS, he is rapidly improving and putting weight back on.  Now weighing about 70 pounds, 5-year-old Cocheese walks well on a leash, is good with other dogs and loves to play with his people.  If you feel you need a watchdog, do consider Cocheese.  His bark can intimidate anyone.  Cocheese is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.

 

 

CHUBBY (aka LADY) 

 

 1-25-13 Chubby Lady

 

Sweet, shy Chubby Lady is a special needs girl.  An unclaimed stray, she arrived at BAS extremely thin.  It is evident that she has seen some very hard times.  The Shelter staff is working diligently to help Chubby Lady overcome her fears.  Although she is not tri-color, Chubby Lady is believed to be of Treeing Walker Coonhound descent.  Her fine bone structure definitely gives her the appearance of a fine lady.  White and tan Chubby Lady is estimated to be 5 to 6 years old and now weighs about 40 pounds.  A well-balanced, non-aggressive canine companion would be a huge aid to Chubby Lady’s progress.  Chubby Lady is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.

 

 

 

MELVIN 

 

1-25-13 Melvin1 1-25-13 Melvin2

 

All right ladies, I know I am as handsome as handsome can be.  I know I have some Persian blood in my veins.  And I know that I should be on the Fancy Feast Commercials.  You might think I am a self-centered fellow.  However, I am an unclaimed stray from Indian Hills; I am not stuck-up at all.  I am a sweet love who gets along with other cats, dogs and respectful children.  They say I am mature…  That I must be about 7 years old, but I feel like I am only 4.  I was shy at first, but have come out of my shell. I am looking for someone who would love to brush my beautiful blue (gray) fur.  I am neutered and up to date on my vaccinations.  What more can you ask for?

 

 

LAST WEEK’S PETS  -  Buddy from last week has found a foster home, while the teenage kittens fearing the spring onslaught of new babies, Gustifer, Hansel, Ditto, Gino and China, remain hoping for 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, 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.
