PETS OF THE WEEK 10-4-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday October 3rd 11:17pm
Heard about “Tortitude”? The rumor that Tortoiseshell cats are loud, feisty and believe they are the princess of the home. Well, the following feline ladies, who can be found at the Beverly Animal Shelter, can prove that idea to be simply false. These lovely, cuddly girls would like to personally meet you and prove what sweeties they really are.
A reserved but lovable young lady, Mama Mia arrived in June of this year. She is still a bit shy but once she knows you will be gentle with her, Mama Mia politely requests your affection. Estimated to be about 2 years old, Mama Mia has beautiful green eyes, mottled shades of orange, brown and black fur, and a very cute orange bib. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Uniquely marked, Jenna has an adorable black nose and half-orange/ half-black mouth and chin. A playful young lady, charming Jenna is thought to be less than 2 years old. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations and just waiting to go home with you!!
Gentle and charming, 4 to 6 year old dark Torti, Morgan has a wonderful loving personality. She is extremely affectionate and has very silky, medium length fur. Morgan might be considered special needs. Not because of medical issues, but because she has a “different” appearance. She arrived as a stray with one ear bearing the mark of exaggerated “tipping” - usually done to mark the spaying of a stray cat. Unfortunately, the other ear had hematomas that necessitated removal. That surgery left her ear deformed, but did not change Morgan’s loving character. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
A lovely green-eyed lady, Stacey is an affectionate cuddle-bug. She arrived at the Shelter as a 1-year-old back in 2010. During her time at BAS, quiet Stacey has been overlooked, but she would really like a home of her own. A black and brown tiger with enough hints of orange and cream, Stacey qualifies to be called a Torbie (Torti colored tabby cat). She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – Canine Shorty from last week is happy to announce his adoption. While the handsome feline boys, Chester and Schiller, remain waiting for their purrfect human.

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.
