PETS OF THE WEEK 2-21-14posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday February 20th 10:21pm
People have been asking, “Aren’t there any adoptable dogs at the Beverly Animal Shelter?” Well the good news is there are not many that you haven’t already met. However, there are countless numbers of adoptable felines. If the following canines don’t catch your eye, you might want to think about adopting an affectionate cat or two.
A lovely, fawn and white American Pit Bull Terrier, Popcycle arrived in late December just in time to celebrate New Year’s Day. She is a good girl who gets along well with the Shelter staff, as well as, other dogs. Popcycle is clean in her cage and walks well on a leash. She is thought to be about 2 years old and weighs around 45 pounds. Popcycle is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed before adoption. She is looking forward to long daily walks with her new family.
Energetic, brindle and white American Staffordshire Terrier, Tony is a handsome and happy boy who is thought to be about 5 months old and weighs a good 35 pounds. He looks so similar to Popcycle that they look to be related. But supposedly, that is not true. Tony is ready for lots of family playtime and regular exercise to help him become the wonderful adult dog he can be. He is up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered before adoption.
An affectionate grey tiger, Lucky began his life with a sweet elderly lady. Unfortunately, last year she had to move to a nursing home and Lucky was not allowed to go with her. That’s when he moved into the Beverly Animal Shelter. Well, approximately 7-year-old Lucky is more than ready for a new furever home. He is looking for a similar sweet lady or gentleman with a warm lap where he can cuddle. Lucky is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
LAST WEEK PETS - Not Again, from last week’s darling feline ladies, is happy to announce her adoption. Morrin and Molly remain waiting for their human to arrive.

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. 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.
