PETS OF THE WEEK 3-22-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday March 21st 11:06pm
The pets at the Beverly Animal Shelter all have a story to tell. Some are interesting, some are sad but whatever the story may be, you can be the happy ending to their story. The following pets are ready for their Happy Ending.
Handsome, red tiger, Gump is just a big hunk of kitty love who is worth your time. Affectionate Gump loves to play. And when Mr. Gump is not playing, he is cuddling. However, Gump is special needs. He is FIV positive. Charming Gump needs to be an indoor cat. Find out more when you visit him at the Shelter. Gump is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Does this buff boy look familiar? He should! Hansel has been working the store for at least the last five months trying to prove to potential adoptive parents, that he is the cutest, most playful and lovable teenager at the Shelter. Purr-machine Hansel arrived as a little kitten late last July making him now 10 months old. Hansel is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Great Pyrenees mix, Connor is ready for a family to give him a new life. The Great Pyrenees breed developed as guard dogs to protect sheep from wolves and bears. They are devoted to their flock. Connor loves people and wishes for a flock, i.e. family of his own to devote himself to. If you find Connor to be a possible family member, be ready to be devoted to him. His long, thick, white with patches of tan, coat needs regular brushing. As a “working” dog, Connor will need daily, long walks and a fenced yard to play in. At six years of age, 60 to 70 pound, Connor is ready to settle down with you.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s blizzard of white pets - felines, Lonnie, Frosty and Carly, and petite French Bull Dog/Chihuahua, Abby remain waiting for their moment to arrive.
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. THANK YOU SO MUCH ASPCA!
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…
The Beverly Animal Shelter is preparing for this 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.
