PETS OF THE WEEK 10-25-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday October 24th 10:33pm
Autumn may soon be over, but the Beverly Animal Shelter is overflowing with leftover kittens from this Summer’s second round of Kitten Season births. Because kittens do better with a playmate, Dallyn is offering this BOGO for your special Treat, adopt one kitten at the regular adoption fee and get the second kitten free. Just some of the many available kittens follow…
THE BRADY BUNCH
Absolutely adorable babes who are estimated to be about 10 weeks old. All are shorthaired except for lovely Marcia who has medium to long hair. Lined up from left to right (and hoping to escape their cage) are orange tabby with white feet, Bobby. He is followed by black tiger/tabby with yellow eyes, Greg. Orange tiger with white feet and white “tear stains” on his face is Peter. Beautiful, affectionate, Torti tiger, Cindy reaches under her sister, Marcia. Last, but certainly not the least, is Jan, a black and white tabby with white paws. The Bunch is up to date on their vaccinations and just waiting for you.
“Escaping” to the other side of the split cage, lovely, long to medium haired, Marcia attempts to explain why she is the kitten most deserving to be adopted. But do take advantage of the BOGO offer to get a playmate for Marcia.
TIKKI & GLORIA
Nursed back to health after being found in poor condition some time ago, white and black with a pink nose, baby boy, Tikki and his grey and white sister, Gloria are now ready for play. They would like to state that they, at about 8 weeks of age, are more than ready to leave their cage. Tikki and Gloria are up to date on their kitten vaccinations and ready to be your treat!
LAST WEEK’S PETS – All of last week’s colorful Calico girls, Alloway, Molly, Americana and Kaddy remain waiting at the Shelter for their purrfect human to come along.

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.
