PETS OF THE WEEK 12-28-12posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday December 27th 10:01pm
The Holidays are a time for celebration. These prior residents of the Beverly Animal Shelter are definitely celebrating – they have found their furever home. They might be just two of the many pets adopted from the Shelter; however, there are many, many more still waiting for a loving home. You too can find your purrfect cat or devoted dog at the Beverly Animal Shelter.
JUSTIN CASE then (this past October)
“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.
JUSTIN now known as HENRY
"Hello, I use to be known as Justin Case. My mom and dad changed my name to Henry. I love my new home. I have lots of room to run around, and boy, do I run in the morning. I have so much fun! Knocking things over and getting into things. Then mom yells at me. But, I know she still loves me. She spoils me like crazy! And oh, they have a dog here. Her name is Chloe and I like to run by her and bat her with my paws. I don’t think Chloe likes it, but it is fun anyways. One day, mom was giving Chloe a bath in the tub so I had to stick my nose in there to see what was going on and I fell in the tub... Uggggh I got soaked! I learned my lesson on that one! After running around and knocking things over all over the house, I tend to nap all day on mom’s bed. I love mom’s bed. Then when dad comes home after work, I run out into the kitchen to see him. I love my new family and home." -Henry (Justin Case) NOTE: HENRY (aka Justin)’s SIBLINGS REMAIN AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! HOMEY then (this past April)

HOMEY then (this past April)
A very sweet young man who wears a grey tuxedo and has charming green eyes. What sweet Homes does not have is a tail. He does have a very sad tale with a very happy ending. On a very cold Winter’s day pathetic looking Homes tried to drag himself into the Home Depot. BAS rescued sick, malnourished Homes, but did not expect him to live through the night. Homes obviously did live through that first night. He was treated for pneumonia and his malnourishment. Overlooked until it became infected was Homes severely fractured tail. The only hope there was to remove the mangled tail. Now, adorable and affectionate Homes’ only disability is that he has no tail. He is a totally healthy young man who Dallyn feels deserves to get special loving for the rest of his life! Homes is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
A simple statement from his new family… "Homey is the sweetest cat. He loves everybody, dogs and other cats and kids. We don't know (how we lived) life without him."
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s Santa wish makers, Rocky and Ghost in hopes of Foster homes and Frankie, Pepper, Jethro and Bud, in hopes of Permanent homes remain patiently waiting for you.

Along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will be closed on Wednesdays for the Winter.
Happy New Year to All!! Pets of the Week will return in two weeks.

Happy News for the Shelter, The ASPCA will be granting the funds necessary to complete Jenna’s Wish (building) with dog runs and a staging area to improve the efficient operation of the SOS (Shelter Outreach Services i.e. spay and neutering) clinic. Thank You ASPCA.
Special Thanks go out to Bob McGill for his continued help and support for the Shelter’s special projects.
It will soon be here. The 2013 Annual Shelter Dinner Dance will be held February 16, 2013. Get ready for some good old Rock and Roll from Rochester’s Ruby Shooz. The New York Giants have generously donated another football to be raffled. 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 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?!
Don’t let the snow deter you from getting 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!
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 has reared 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.
