PETS OF THE WEEK 11-30-12posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday November 29th 11:45pm
It is officially the Christmas Season and wishes abound. At the Beverly Animal Shelter, these lovely and loveable feline ladies can be found at the Store wishing their one and only one Christmas wish… That they have a furever home for Christmas.
The Shelter staff has a wish as well, for 2 foster homes. A Foster Care home is needed for Rocky, the Belgian Malinois, who has been at the Shelter too long. The boy needs an active home with one on one contact.
A Foster Care home is needed for, or the owner must claim, an injured gray cat, who the Shelter has named Ghost. A neutered male who is estimated to be 3 years old, Ghost was found near Yost Road in Waterloo. An untreated severe leg injury necessitated the removal his leg. At the Shelter he must be caged but in a home Ghost could be free to adjust to his situation.
Hoping to find furever homes for the numerous felines wintering at the Shelter, the Black Friday Specials for felines have been extended through the month of December! Adopt one black cat at the full adoption fee and get ½ off the adoption fee of your second cat or kitten of any color!!!
Now for this week’s lovely ladies…
No common Calico, attractive Alloway has tiger stripes in her red fur and tabby swirls in her black fur. She arrived at the Shelter in late April 2011 a mere 6 to 8 month old kitten. Unique Alloway is ready to be the beauty of your home. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
When she mysteriously appeared at the shelter in Fall 2011, Ellie was sick and underweight. Now healthy and plumper, she is flourishing! Mostly white with a black “cap” and black tail, Ellie even has a black “heart” on her backside. Miss Ellie has some other great attributes too. Take a close look at her picture. Ellie is a polydactyl cat, that is, she has 7 toes on her feet. What makes her even more special? Ellie has one green eye and one blue eye! She is indeed, a very stunning lady! The best part is that Ellie is extremely affectionate, loves attention, and gets along well with other cats and dogs. She is a 2-3 year old love-bug and would make a wonderful, devoted family pet! She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
Gentle and charming, 3 to 5 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. 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.
White with grey tiger markings and the cutest pink nose, Lynnea is a calm, cuddly lady in search of a loving lap. An unclaimed stray, Lynnea is estimated to be about 5 years old. She is a real sweetheart. Lynnea is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s Black Friday Special Young Felines, Mac, Janice, Buckwheat and Cindy remain waiting for adoption.

The football has been signed by the 2012 Super Bowl Winning Team! Raffle tickets are currently available at The Shelter for a $5.00 donation.

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, all available funds have been used for 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.
