PETS OF THE WEEK 10-19-12posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday October 18th 10:32pm
Last week we featured three handsome canine gentlemen who deserved a second look. This week we have three young ladies deserving of a very first look. Do keep in mind, dogs are a commitment. They require attention, especially daily walks. All these young ladies need regular walks and if you are into jogging, they might even enjoy a daily run. Also, remember to bring any current dog who lives with you for a “meet and greet” before bringing a new dog home. And then, we can all live happily ever after!
Ever wish for a little girl with curls? Sweet Mandy may be just what you are looking for. She is thought to be a Collie/German Wirehaired mix. Black and tan Mandy is clean in her cage and is good with children older than 10. With her big smile, Mandy will welcome you home each night. Estimated to be 1 to 2 years old and weighing 35 to 40 pounds, Mandy is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
A Collie/Shepherd mix found as a stray, Anna is just a petite girl ready for play. Thought to weigh only in the 30 to 35 pound range, she is approximately 2 years old. Anna is shy when meeting strange people, but becomes a loving lady once she gets to know you. She is clean in her cage. Anna is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
Tan, black and silver, Shepherd/Husky mix, Kona is an unclaimed stray from Seneca Falls. Considering her thought to be ancestry, she is a bit on the petite size at her estimated 50-pound weight. Although she is about 2 years old, Kona still has exuberant puppy tendencies. She needs an active family who will keep her busy with lots of long walks/runs, play and consistent rules and love. Kona is a definite beauty with her expressive face and huge ears. She will make some family very happy with just a bit of devoted care. Kona is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s canine candidate gentlemen, Rocky, Mikey and Fido remain waiting to be your choice.
SHELTER NEWS -
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 will soon be 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?!
While the nice weather is here, remember that the Dave Pullen Memorial Dog Park at the Beverly Animal Shelter is open Monday-Saturday, 9am-5pm. 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!
The Beverly Animal Shelter no longer has a pet groomer. Christine has moved out of the area.
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…
THANK YOU FOR THE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE PAST YEAR!!
Winter will soon be rearing 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, Please check with the Shelter for what is available in 2012.
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.
