PETS OF THE WEEK 3-14-14posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday March 13th 11:18pm
It is a sad thing when a person becomes unable to care for their pet. A move to a new apartment that does not allow pets can cause such sadness. The Beverly Animal Shelter takes in these pets without homes. Then the task, of finding them new homes, begins. This week we present four such loving felines hoping for a new home.
Handsome and charming are the proper adjectives for sweet Phantom. Surrendered with Lucy (who follows) 13 year old, shorthaired Phantom can’t understand why he lost his home. He is declawed on his front paws and just the most charming, green-eyed boy. Grey tuxedo wearing Phantom is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations and desires to be adopted with his lady, Lucy.
Surrendered along with Phantom because their owner moved and could not take them along, lovely, longhaired Lucy is wishing to find a new forever home with her best friend, Phantom. Ask Dallyn or Cindy what special adoption fees might be available to keep these two together. Pure white and green-eyed, 14 year old Lucy loves to be held and cuddled. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
Longhaired Pacific wearing her black tuxedo might look like a big cat, but this young lady is light as a feather. She’s all hair. Beautiful, yellow-eyed Pacific was surrendered because her owner could no longer keep her. She is just about 9 months old, is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
Uniquely marked, Jenna has an adorable black nose and half-orange/ half-black mouth and chin. A playful young lady with yellow eyes, charming Jenna is thought to be 2 to 3 years old. No Torti with an attitude is she. Jenna can be found working the store. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations and just waiting to go home with you!!
LAST WEEK PETS - Bella from last week’s canine ladies successfully charmed her way into a forever home. While the other canine lady, sweet Diamond and cuddly feline lady, Bess remain waiting for theirs.

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.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO VOLUNTEER YOUR HELP TO THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER? BUT CAN’T BE AT THE SHELTER FOR WHATEVER REASON (HOME COMMITMENTS, ALLERGIES ETC.) WELL, THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO HELP. HOW ABOUT:
HELPING WITH OFFSITE ADOPTION EVENTS
UPDATING THE BAS WEBSITE
POSTING PETS ON PETFINDER
KEEPING THE FINGER LAKES TIMES UPDATED WITH RECENT LOST & FOUND PETS.
THESE ARE JUST A FEW PLACES EXTRA HANDS AND MINDS ARE NEEDED REGULARLY. CALL THE SHELTER AT 539-9357 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE EVEN JUST A LITTLE BIT OF YOUR TIME.
Contact the Shelter for more information on The Purina Pets for Seniors Fund for 2014.
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.
