PETS OF THE WEEK 4-26-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Friday April 26th 12:27am
There is nothing like a cuddly cat curling up in your lap and telling you, through his or her purring, that there is no one better in the whole wide world than you. Or what about that perpetual waggie tail that greets you and your family each time you enter your home. If you are looking for an Indoor cat that you can count on or that smiling dog, the Beverly Animal Shelter has just what you are looking for.
One year old this month, Miss Margo is the last of a litter of kittens from last Spring. A charming dark tiger with tiny white toes and just a hint of orange that allows her to say that she is a Calico Tiger, Margo is a quiet Indoor girl looking for a calm home where her purring will be appreciated. Margo is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
RAIN (aka Little Man)
All dressed up in his black tuxedo, Rain is ready for a night on the town. The only problem is he’s an indoor cat, so he’s hoping the party will be at your place! Almost 1 year old, Rain is another leftover kitten from 2012. Rain’s golden yellow eyes will enchant you. Easygoing Rain is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
Mostly white but wearing a tiger hat and having a tiger tail with a white tip, Cheeks is one cool cat. An unclaimed stray, he arrived with a previously injured paw that had healed without medical care. Cheeks vowed to be an indoor cat from that moment on. An affectionate fellow, Cheeks is estimated to be about 4 years old. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
An absolute sweetheart, that’s what this young lady is. Are you looking for that perfect girl with a smiley face and a waggie tail? Well then, black and brown, Miss Absolute is the girl for you. Yes, she is a Beagle/Hound mix and might walk (or even run) with her nose to the ground, but all you need is a well-fenced yard and a family with loving children for Absolute to play with and this girl will be yours. An unclaimed stray, Absolute is thought to be no more than 3 years old. She is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed before adoption. Oh, and one more thing… Absolute just loves to play with her squeaky toys.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s hopeful cats, Molly and Handsome Dude, and hopeful dogs, Piper and Theo, are still hoping for someone like you.
SHELTER NEWS -
Thank you to everyone who, once again, made Dewey’s Annual Chicken Barbecue for the Benefit of the Beverly Animal Shelter a resounding success! Special thanks to Linda & Dewey, Sher & Marty, Jess & the Dirty Birds and all the countless others who helped out!
Also, Special Thanks go out to the Seneca Falls VFW, the SF VFW Men’s Auxiliary, SF VFW Women’s Auxiliary and the SF VFW Color Guard for their generous donation that arrived just in time to pay the Electric Bill!!
Makes this author think… Might there be someone or a group willing to help with or donate a windmill that might not only alleviate the burden of further Electric Bills for the Animal Shelter, but generate some extra funds when the excess electricity generated can be “sold back” to the electric company? Hmmmm…
The folks at the Beverly Animal Shelter do have one special request for some strong individuals capable of taking down the old, wind damaged dog kennels and possibly putting the unbroken parts back together to make sturdy outdoor kennels for the dogs to enjoy the Spring weather. If you (and a friend or two) can help, please call the Shelter at 539-9357. If you can, please bring your own tools and THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
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 may finally be over, but Kitten Season has arrived! 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?!
Come enjoy the milder weather 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.
