PETS OF THE WEEK 11-22-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Friday November 22nd 12:10am
Sometimes you just have to make up your mind that you ARE going to be adopted. Then, you go to work on it. That is what some of the cats at the Beverly Animal Shelter say. They feel they have been waiting just a bit too long for that purrfect person. It is time to sell themselves. They can be quite the impressive salesperson.
And to help you with your Christmas Shopping, BAS is having their Annual Feline Special, from now till Christmas Adopt one adult feline at the regular adoption fee and get your choice of feline for just ½ of the regular adoption fee. Please come by the Shelter and meet…
Lovely and lovable Torbie (Tri-color Tortoiseshell coloring amidst the Tiger/Tabby stripes) Maria may have been considered to be a gray tiger when she arrived back in December 2010, but apparently, no one noticed her adorable orange toes. Maria definitely feels she needs a home with a cuddly lap NOW, not later. Maria has beautiful green eyes and gets along with all. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed and ready to be your purrfect feline friend.
Surrendered along with her housemate, Hope, this past summer when her owner could no longer care for them, unusual red and white, female Tiger, Faith is thought to be about 2 years old. Her housemate, Hope has found a home and Faith is eager for a home of her own. A very sweet girl, Faith is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed and just as cute as can be.
RAIN (aka LITTLE MAN)
Handsome Rain arrived at the Shelter as a tiny kitten in May of 2012. This charming young man has decided he likes the ladies and felt he found the right one. He tried to convince her to let him go home with her. A very silky boy, Rain is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – All of last week’s unclaimed stray dogs, Babe, Matilda, Beau and Luke and injured feline, Lynn, remain waiting to be claimed by someone.

THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER HAS BEEN AWARDED A GRANT BY THE ASPCA TO REINSTITUE THE LOW-COST SPAY AND NEUTER VOUCHER PROGRAM. PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER AT 539-9357 FOR MORE INFORMATION. THANK YOU SO MUCH ASPCA!
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.
Although Winter is banging on the door, it is not too late to spend some playtime 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.
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.
