PETS OF THE WEEK 11-16-12posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday November 15th 10:15pm
The Christmas Gift Shopping Season begins earlier every year. And likewise, the traditional start of the shopping season, the Friday following Thanksgiving, has taken on the term “Black Friday” which in some cases is every day in the month of November. The Beverly Animal Shelter will not be left out of this Christmas preparation. We present to you the Canines for this Friday’s Black Friday Special. These special canines will be available for the reduced adoption fee of $100 from this Friday, November 16 until Sunday, November 25.
Interested in getting one or perhaps two new felines? Then stop by the Shelter and ask Cindy who are the Feline Black Friday Specials. What’s the deal with them? Adopt one of the Black Friday Special felines between this Friday, November 16 and next Sunday, November 25, and you can adopt another feline of your choice of color for ½ the normal adoption fee.
BUT BEFORE THE CHRISTMAS SPECIALS, THE SHELTER AND POOR BUD NEED YOUR HELP!!
Do you know who this dog is or who his owners are? If so, call the Beverly Animal Shelter at 315-539-9357. We have named him ‘Bud’. Bud was found on Armitage Rd. in Tyre on Wednesday, Nov 15, 2012. He is very emaciated. Fortunately he is eating. On the second picture, you will see what appears to be a collar - it is not - these are open wounds. It is where a collar used to be, nearly imbedded in his skin. Bud is an un-neutered male, tri-colored hound estimated to be about 3 years old. He is a sweetheart. Please call the shelter if you know who he is, or who he belongs to.
Now for the Black Friday Canine Specials
Now for the Black Friday Canine Specials
With her very short black fur, Miss Koal is ready to go back inside to the Shelter’s warmth. On warmer days, one to two year old, Koal is an exuberant young’un looking for a family she can grow and play with. She is a petite Black Lab mix who weighs only about 35 to 40 pounds, yet she is thought to be an adult. Koal is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
What gorgeous, but sad, big brown eyes Mr. (or is it Sargent?) Pepper has. An unclaimed stray brought in by the police (thus the leash still attached), Pepper is considered to be an ”open faced” (longer, less heavy face) Chow mix. Pepper would prefer to be an only pet. He just loves his people. He is clean in his cage and walks well on his leash. A bigger boy, Pepper is estimated to weigh 55 to 60 pounds and be about 3 years old. He is up to date on his vaccinations and if not already, will be neutered before adoption.
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 spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s shades of gray felines, lovely Sookie, hunky Mr. Morris and little Helga, remain waiting for their purrfect, quiet home.
SHELTER NEWS -
Speaking of Christmas... word is out that Santa will soon be stopping by for his annual visit and photo op!! Watch for more information to soon follow. Or call the Shelter for more info.
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 is just about 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?!
Catch the nice days while you can. 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.
