PETS OF THE WEEK 10-18-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday October 17th 11:14pm
Autumn is in full swing all around us. At the Beverly Animal Shelter, the Calico girls are eager to share their lives and bright yellows, golds and reds with you. Please stop by the Shelter to meet these charming ladies of October.
No common Calico, attractive Alloway has tiger stripes in her red fur and tabby swirls in her black fur. She arrived at the Shelter in late April 2011, a mere 6 to 8 month old kitten. Unique Alloway is ready to be the beauty of your home. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
A lovely Calico Tiger, Molly was surrendered after her elderly owner passed away. Word is that this shy girl is nearing 10 years old, but she doesn’t look or act a day over 5. Still wary of her new environment, Miss Molly hopes to quickly find a quiet home with a loving lap. She is available for fostering or adoption and is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
A beautiful young Calico, Americana was found this past summer along with her beautiful babes. A devoted Mom, she took excellent care of her babes no matter what the location. As usual, the babes have found their homes and now it is Americana’s turn. She is an outgoing, sweet girl who is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Saving the best for last, it is hard to believe that exquisite, longhaired Kaddy is an unclaimed stray who arrived at the Shelter last Fall. A muted/dilute Calico with fur in shades of flaxen, blue-gray and white and with beautiful green eyes, Kaddy is a bashful girl. She hopes for a loving home with a cuddly lap and no other felines. Thought to be 3 to 4 years old, Kaddy is spayed and is up to date on her vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – Boo, from last week’s large black dogs looking for a little love, is happy to announce her adoption. While the big boys, Chaka and Miller, remain patiently waiting for someone to love them.

GOOD NEWS - the Beverly Animal Shelter IS NOW OPEN normal hours 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.
Come enjoy the milder weather 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!!
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. Be sure to wash out your returnables.
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.
