PETS OF THE WEEK 3-15-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday March 14th 11:32pm
Technically, Spring may be right around the corner. However, Winter continues to have lots of white weather in store for us. Likewise, the Beverly Animal Shelter continues to have a blizzard of beautiful and wonderful white pets currently available for adoption. Here are just a few…
A very handsome young stray from Romulus. Recent arrival Lonnie has pure white, long hair and yellow eyes. He is still getting accustomed to the hustle and bustle of Shelter life and is quite shy. Nothing that a little bit of petting can’t help. Thought to be only 1 to 2 years old, Lonnie is up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered before adoption.
With a name like Frosty, you just gotta know that this fellow arrived in the Winter – the dead of Winter to be exact. He was lucky to be found alive in February 2011 with his feet almost frozen to the ground where he huddled. Young and strong, Frosty survived his ordeal. Now estimated to be almost 3 years old, affectionate Frosty has mostly white long hair with a few dusted spots of gray. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
No doubt about it. You will find this lovely little lady with short white fur and yellow eyes in the store, attempting to sell herself to someone in search of a loving lap cat. Carly arrived in July 2012 with her babes. Presently, the last of the family left at the Shelter, quiet and elegant Carly is looking for a home where she will be the only cat. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Cuter than cute, pure white, French Bull Dog/Chihuahua mix, Abby is simply adorable. Surrendered because her owner could no longer keep her, Miss Abby is a doll. A sweet cuddle-bug, she’s good with all and housebroken. Weighing in the 10 to 15 pound range, 3 year-old, Abby is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s adult felines who have been at the Shelter TOO LONG, Cali, Pall Mall and Spot, as well as, big hunk of doggie love, Murray remain waiting for their real forever home.
SHELTER NEWS -
WONDERFUL NEWS!! THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER WAS RECENTLY AWARDED A GRANT BY THE ASPCA TO REINSTITUE THE LOW-COST SPAY AND NEUTER VOUCHER PROGRAM. PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER AT 539-9357 FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Now that the Beverly Animal Shelter Annual Dinner Dance is over, are you looking forward to Dewey’s Annual Chicken Barbecue to benefit the Shelter, which is usually held in March? Well folks, you must wait until April 20 this year. It will be held at the Party House on Auburn Road and will have two bands performing! Lots to look forward to, but in the meantime, Dewey doesn’t want you to wait for that big old 50/50 Raffle for the Shelter’s benefit. Tickets are being sold right now at Dewey’s, The Copy Shop and BAS for the drawing to be held at Dewey’s on March 31.
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 might be on its way out, but Kitten Season will soon be 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! What a deal!! Why not choose 2?!
Don’t let the snow or mud 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.
