PETS OF THE WEEK 3-1-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday February 28th 9:36pm
It is the meteorological beginning of Spring - a time of new beginnings. The pets at the Beverly Animal Shelter are ready for new beginnings of their own. Included in the most eager are the following felines who are “working the store” practically wearing signs which say, “Please Take Me Home!!” and then there is shy canine, Ranger.
Not just any dark tiger with reddish brown highlights, sweet, green-eyed Natalie, who should rightfully be called a Torbie (a striped Tabby with the tri-colors of the Tortie), is as beautiful as her name. Found on River Road the summer 2010, sweet Natalie was adopted soon after. Unfortunately, her elderly owner can no longer care for her at this time. An extremely affectionate girl, Natalie now looks forward to another peaceful and caring home of her own. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Quiet and calm, purr-machine, Gavin arrived as a babe last September. He is now about 8 months old. A bi-color boy, Gavin is not the usual black and white, but a handsome blue (gray) and white with pale green eyes. The last of the litter left for adoption, charming Gavin is waiting for gentle cuddling and lots of love. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
A happy but shy boy, Golden Retriever mix, Ranger is ready for a loving home with a job to do which includes plenty of family play. In return, he needs daily walks and brushing. Thought to be 2 years old and weighing about 60 pounds, Ranger is a wonderful dog who is clean in his run. He is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
Lovely Lindsay wears a striking black tuxedo with tiny white “gloves” and white “boots”. Do check out that “milk moustache” and those white whiskers to match. A leftover kitten from the 2011 season, affectionate Lindsay hopes to find a loving home of her own before the 2013 kittens arrive. She can often be found lounging on top of someone’s car hoping for a ride to her purrfect home. Lindsey is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Good news for last week’s pets, both canine, Sheena and feline, Wednesday have been adopted. Golden eyed Tabby, Dick and inquisitive, black Terrier, Fuchsia remain waiting for their new world.
SHELTER NEWS -

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.
