PETS OF THE WEEK 10-5-12posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Friday October 5th 12:14am
As Kitten Season finally winds down and Fall approaches, we find quite a bit of similarity between the colors indoors and out. Yes, the Beverly Animal Shelter has kittens who are ready to be your treat for the season. Why fill your respectful children with all those candies when you can give them a loving companion? How about…
Exotic Torti, Jenna has an adorable black nose and half orange/ half black mouth and chin. This girl is ready for play. Before you bring Jenna home, make sure you are prepared (in addition to the standard cat food and litter pan) with plenty of toys i.e. cat tree, chaseable balls and toy mice. Less than one year old, charming Jenna is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations and just waiting to go home with you!!
JASMINE, JEREMIAH & JUSTIN CASE
“Did someone mention play?” asks this mischievous group of siblings. Take one, two or all three and have a loving family to keep your family busy!! Jasmine is a dilute Torti (shades of gray and light orange) girl with golden eyes and extra toes on her front paws. Her buff Tiger brother, Jeremiah has the same golden eyes. Tiger brother, Justin (Case) has pale golden eyes and loves to cuddle (when he is finished playing!). Since the babes are approaching three months of age, they will soon be spayed and neutered, respectively. They are up to date on their vaccinations.
What a Love! A dark Tiger with splashes of orange in her fur, sweet golden-eyed Erica would be considered a Torbi (Torti/Tabby). No stuck up Torti genes in this girl. Erica loves attention. She is less than 1 year old, spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
Muted Torti, Bobby Jo arrived at the shelter with an injured eye and went right into surgery. However, they could not save her eye. Nonetheless, Bobby Jo is a very lovable little 6 to 7 month old girl and she is doing just fine now. A quiet girl, she is hoping for quiet, caring home. Bobby Jo is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s party-ready felines, Buttons, Miller, Manhattan, Ingrid, Suzu, and Handsome, remain waiting for their purrfect human.
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
