PETS OF THE WEEK 2-28-14posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday February 27th 9:31pm
Are you looking for an indoor companion? Perhaps an Indoor Feline, who will feel secure in your home. The Beverly Animal Shelter has some wonderful indoor cats to welcome you home each evening. Why not stop by and meet…
The big, quiet type, Rilla is a chubby guy who just wants someone to love him. An unclaimed stray from last Fall, he has made himself at home in the store. Rilla gets along with all and is ready to be your indoor cat. He’s estimated to be 6 years old, is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
Lovable Mitze wears a grey tuxedo with white boots and white mittens – Miss Mitze is polydactyl and appears to be wearing mittens, but she is shy about showing them. Thought at the time to be 8 to 10 months old, Mitze arrived at the Shelter in January 2013 with a hematoma in her ear. Although corrected, the hematoma left its mark. With pale green eyes and the pinkest nose, Mitze is a very sweet, cuddly girl who gets along with all. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
Spirited Lantern is your typical orange/red tiger boy. When he arrived last October, Lantern was only about 6 weeks old. Now this little man with golden eyes is ready for lots of play. Irresistible Lantern is up to date on his vaccinations and if not already, will be neutered before adoption.
LAST WEEK PETS - All of last week’s pets, canines Popcycle and Tony, and feline Lucky, remain waiting for the right human to enter their life.
SHELTER NEWS -
It’s time to mark your calendars again! Doug’s Fish Fry will be coming to Seneca Falls/Waterloo again to benefit the Beverly Animal Shelter on Monday March 24. Watch for more information to come.
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. 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.
