PETS OF THE WEEK 2-14-14posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday February 13th 8:56pm
Fortunately, the adoptable dogs at the Beverly Animal Shelter have had an easy time finding their furever homes in spite of this endless Winter weather. On the other hand, the feline residents have not had such an easy time. Whether they are leftover kittens from late last summer’s litter or a darling, older kitty who lost her owner, these sweet girls are just a sample of the abundance of deserving felines available.
A petite dark Torti tiger, Morrin arrived at the Shelter amidst the December snows. She is an inquisitive young lady with the most beautiful green eyes. Morrin loves her people and has very soft fur that is ideal for petting. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
A lovely Calico Tiger, Molly was surrendered after her elderly owner passed away. Word is that this lovely lady is nearing 10 years old, but she doesn’t look or act a day over 5. Although Molly has adjusted well to her new environment, she hopes to find a quiet home with a loving lap. Molly is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Estimated to be 5 to 6 months old, Not Again (do you get the feeling she was not really wanted?) is a unique dark tiger with Tabby swirls in her fur. With her medium length fur and yellow eyes, Not Again has a hint of bobcat to her appearance. She is a very lovable girl who is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations and is ready to go home with you.
LAST WEEK PETS - All of last week’s pets, canines Tucker and Reggie and felines Pretty Boy and Lenny, remain waiting for that illusive furever home.
SHELTER NEWS -
This is it! The Ninth Annual Beverly Animal Shelter Dinner Dance will be held on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at Club 86 in Geneva with music by Ruby Shooz. Overcrowding last year means tickets this year will be limited. So plan on getting your tickets early or you might miss this special event.
Tickets for the event are $37.50 each and are on sale now at the shelter, The Copy Shop in Seneca Falls, and Pedulla’s Liquor Store in Geneva. With a credit card, Dinner tickets can also be purchased over the phone from the shelter at 315-539-9357. No tickets will be available for sale at the door.
Wondering what the fantasy raffle will be this year? Well, the Beverly Animal Shelter has received a basketball from the 2013 NCAA Final Four autographed by the Syracuse University Basketball Team!
Winter is HERE. Along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will be closed on Wednesdays for the Winter.
IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THAT OLD ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT (like grandma’s old scanner and your old cell phone), YOU WERE THINKING ABOUT DONATING TO THE SHELTER FOR RECYCLING, SORRY TO INFORM YOU THAT IT IS TOO LATE. THE WINTER WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW THE TRUCK PICK-UP. THE FINAL PICK-UP WAS LAST OCTOBER.
HOWEVER, ELECTRONICS WILL AGAIN BE COLLECTED IN THE SPRING.

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.
Enjoy the Winter; 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 over but the cold winds of winter are blowing. To help the Shelter out, please go to www.FirstGiving.com/bas. Or, stop by the Shelter and adopt an older leftover 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.
