PETS OF THE WEEK 2-15-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday February 14th 9:57pm
Oh, the unclaimed stray. The Beverly Animal Shelter is regularly called on to rescue the stray dogs or cats of the area. It is difficult to believe that so many do go “unclaimed”. Yes, dogs do have the problem of not being claimed. However, among the cats, it is almost an epidemic. Amidst the many feline, unclaimed strays, you will find the following sweet, young kitties.
An unclaimed stray from Waterloo who arrived at the Shelter on Dec 23, a more fitting name for this young lady might be Holly. Karen has the unusual markings of the Torbie (the typical stripes of the domestic Tabby in the tri-colors of the Tortoise Shell). She has the softest fur and an adorable orange streak on the top of her head. Karen is a quiet girl who likes to watch what you are doing. Estimated to be 2 years old, Karen is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
PRETTY GIRL II
A young black Tabby with unique swirls rather than stripes in her fur, petite Pretty Girl loves to explore and cuddle. She does enjoy her treats and will stand on her hind legs to beg for them. Estimated to be about 1 year old, green-eyed, Pretty Girl is up to date on her vaccinations, spayed and has lovey eyes for you.
An unclaimed stray from Waterloo, Sammi II wears a red tuxedo with white gloves, boots and bib. He is a sweet, affectionate, quiet boy with the softest fur. Thought to be around 2 years old, handsome Sammi is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Purr-machine Hansel arrived as a little kitten late last July making him now 9 months old. What a charming love, teenage Hansel is. He would make the purrfect companion for your quiet child. Hansel is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Roseann, from last week’s fine canines waiting to be the part of your pack, is happy to announce her adoption. While Cooper, Fido and Brody remain wishing and hoping for their chance.
SHELTER NEWS -
Along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will be closed on Wednesdays for the Winter
Hope you have your ticket! The 2013 Annual Shelter Dinner Dance will be held February 16, 2013 at Club 86 in Geneva. 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 and Waterloo’s own, Coach Coughlin! Raffle tickets are currently available at The Shelter for a $5.00 donation. Need more information? Check out the BAS website under events/contact. http://www.beverlyanimalshelteronline.com/contact.html. You’ll find all the wonderful items collected for this year’s silent auction.
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, 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!
THANK YOU FOR THE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE PAST YEAR!!
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…
Winter has reared its ugly head and the Shelter is still dealing with the results of last 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.
The Purina Pets for Seniors Fund has been replenished for 2013. Thank you Purina.
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.
