PETS OF THE WEEK 2-22-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday February 21st 9:55pm
Are you wondering if you should adopt a shelter pet? Are you wondering, “What’s in it for YOU?” Well, to that unclaimed stray or unwanted feline or canine, you are the answer to their prayers. As has been said, “To the world, you are just one more rescue person. But to the rescued pet, you are the world.” The folks at the Beverly Animal Shelter whole-heartedly agree. So do take a moment to meet…
An unclaimed stray from Lodi with a never-ending waggie tail, Yellow Lab mix, Sheena is estimated to be 2 years old. She’s an exuberant young lady who is eager for a family to play with. On the thin side, Sheena is thought to weigh only about 45 to 50 pounds. She is good with children, spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
The child’s nursery rhyme might say that Wednesday’s child is full of woe, but this gorgeous, green-eyed girl is full of potential love for you. Don’t get her wrong, unclaimed stray Wednesday arrived with that nick in her ear. She’s a quiet, cuddle lady who is thought to be no more than 1½ years old. Wednesday is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Richard, a playful, unclaimed cuddle bug, prefers to simply be called Dick. Only 6 to 8 months old, he is a handsome, golden-eyed, red Tabby purr-machine. Dick is ready to go home with you. He’s neutered and up to date on his vaccinations and can make your life complete.
An inquisitive, 5 to 6 month old pup, sweet little Fuchsia is looking for a family to love. Another unclaimed stray, she arrived with a skin problem for which she is being treated. Fuchsia should be good as new very soon. Mostly black with a spot of white on her chest, Terrier/Lab mix, Fuchsia is raring to go home with you. Weighing about 25 pounds, she is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed before adoption.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s young, unclaimed stray felines, Karen, Pretty Girl II, Sammi II and Hansel, remain waiting for their purrfect human.
SHELTER NEWS -
SPECIAL THANKS GO OUT TO ALL WHO ATTENDED OR OTHERWISE MADE THE EIGHTH ANNUAL BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER DINNER DANCE A RESOUNDING SUCCESS!! AND CONGRATS GO OUT TO ORGANIZER PAULA AND HER DEVOTED TEAM WHO BROUGHT IT ALL TOGETHER!!
Along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will be closed on Wednesdays for the Winter
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.
