PETS OF THE WEEK 10-11-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday October 10th 10:23pm
Got a little love in your heart? That’s what these Lab mixes, found at the Beverly Animal Shelter, are asking. They unfortunately fall into an unfavorable category… What are the most Unadoptable dogs? …Those who are on the big side, those who black and those who are a bit exuberant. HOWEVER, if you have that love, time and commitment, what will you get? An affectionate, loyal and devoted family member. So, got that little bit of love?
A handsome Black Lab mix with very soft short fur and big brown eyes, Chaka is an unclaimed stray from Seneca Falls. He is estimated to weigh 65 to 70 pounds and be greater than 3 years old. Chaka is clean in his cage. Labs were bred as working dogs and Chaka meets that description. He needs to be active. Do you need a running companion? With a bit of training Chaka will fit the bill. Chaka is up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered before adoption. Due to his size and exuberance, children should be older than 10 years.
The last half of the Miller/Light duo of unclaimed stray Lab mix partners, Miller simply needs a regular morning and late day walk and he will be the perfect dog. He is so clean in his cage, he could be considered housebroken. Mostly black with white on his chest and toes, Miller knows the commands of sit, down, shake, and speak. Estimated to be 4 years old and weighing about 65 pounds, Miller is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
An active young lady with medium length black fur and a white dot on her chest, Miss Boo is not scary but just in time for Halloween. Thought to be about 1 year old, she was recently spayed and now is looking forward to some training. Part of Boo’s regular daily exercise might be playing Frisbee after her daily walk. She weighs 55 to 60 pounds and is up to date on her vaccinations. Due to Boo’s energy level and size, older children are recommended.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – Morgan, from last week’s lovely Tortis WITHOUT Tortitude, is happy to announce her adoption. While the remaining sweet young ladies, Mama Mia, Jenna and Stacy, remain waiting for their purrfect human.

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.

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!

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…
Kitten Season is here! 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.
