PETS OF THE WEEK 3-29-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday March 28th 10:55pm
One is good, but two are better! That is what the folks at the Beverly Animal Shelter say about the following three pairs of fabulous felines. They are so fabulous, that for these three pairs only, adopt one and get their family member absolutely free. Yes, these kitties arrived together and would really appreciate finding a home together.
HONDA & TOYOTA
These absolutely gorgeous, petite sisters, who are only 8 months old, might have the names of car manufacturers and look a bit serious in their photos but in reality, they are loving, fluffy, purr machines. They have medium length fur and beautiful yellow eyes.
Honda is mostly white with a tiger patch of a hat and a tiger tail. Toyota has a few extra tiger patches on her back. They are up to date on their vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption.
BESS & TRUMAN
Unclaimed cuddly strays, Mom, Bess and her son, Truman, were found in Trumansburg in February. Petite, 1 to 2 year old, Bess is decked out in her tuxedo finest. She has charming white whiskers that draw attention to her unique face. Estimated to be 6 months old, charming, silky black Truman is an inquisitive, playful boy who just wants to explore. Bess and Truman are up to date on their vaccinations as well as, spayed and neutered, respectively.
CALI II & PIPER
Good-natured housemates or sisters, these lovely ladies have been together for the last three years. Surrendered because their owner could no longer keep them, Calico Cali (II) and Torti Piper hope to find their new furever home together. Cali is a vibrant orange, black and white, with an orange tip on her tail. While Piper has deep shades of orange, black and cinnamon. These very sweet girls are spayed and up to date on their vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s pets waiting for the happy ending to their story, Gump, Hansel and Connor, remain waiting at the Shelter.
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!
Special Thanks go out to Kathleen Robson for her generosity in thinking of the Beverly Animal Shelter as a candidate for the Monsanto Grant. It is much appreciated!
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 SOLD OUT!! The drawing WILL BE HELD AT DEWEYS’ ON SATURDAY, MARCH 30.
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 cat food 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.
