PETS OF THE WEEK 4-19-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday April 18th 11:31pm
Spring has finally sprung. It is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. For some of the pets at the Beverly Animal it is a time of hope. For those who have been around too long or might have special needs, Spring brings hopes of maybe now it’s our time. Can you provide their forever home?
A lovely Calico Tiger, Molly was recently surrendered after her elderly owner passed away. Word is that this shy girl is nearing 10 years old, but she doesn’t look or act a day over 5. Still wary of her new environment, Miss Molly hopes to find a quiet home with a loving lap. She is available for fostering or adoption and is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Well, could this good-looking guy have a better name or what? Sweet Handsome Dude loves to cuddle. An unclaimed stray tiger who is thought to be only about 3 years old, HD wears the scars of his rough life on the streets. Unfortunately, this boy has another memento of his past life. He is FIV positive. HD needs a caring indoor home. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
PIPER & THEO
They have been at the Shelter for around one year. Piper & Theo are currently the longest canine residents there. Thought to be going on two years of age and weighing about 45 pounds each, Piper and Theo were found separately as strays. With their similar appearance, the short legs of a Bassett Hound and the face of a Terrier, golden brown Piper and brindle Theo struck up a friendship and have become rather dependent on each other. Separate adoptions may do them well. Piper and Theo need consistent socialization. Because of their strength and quickness children should be older than 10. Piper and Theo are spayed and neutered, respectively, and are up to date on their vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s felines, Jackson and Speck, remain waiting for love, while canine Jock is happy to announce that he has an adoption in the works.

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!
Winter may be over (or so we hope), however, along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will continue to be closed on Wednesdays.
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.
