PETS OF THE WEEK 5-31-13
posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday May 30th 10:57pm
This week’s pets might look familiar. That’s because you have seen them already and we can’t believe these sweeties have not been adopted yet! So why not take a second look at these loving residents of the Beverly Animal Shelter. And don’t forget to stop by the Great Big Garage Sale being held Friday (5/31) and Saturday (6/1) at Lott’s Farm on Rte. 414, south of Seneca Falls. JACKSON Are you looking for a definite Indoor Cat? Then Jackson is the man for you. Born in April 2011, Jackson and his brother, Cody, were brought to the Shelter in May of 2011 as two young babes who were not at ease with humans. After foster care and socialization, they came back to the Shelter. Cody was quickly adopted. Still a bit shy and overlooked for adoption, Jackson soon grew into a big hunk of kitty. Big and maybe intimidating, Jackson is a very sweet, gentle, buff (colored) boy with golden eyes. He gets along with everyone he knows. Jackson is both playful and cuddly and prefers a peaceful home. Neutered and up to date on his vaccinations, Jackson is the purrfect (yes, he does have that perfected) cat for you. CALI What a beautiful example of a Tortoiseshell cat with deep orange and jet black fur. Cali arrived at the shelter in early 2012 as a stray from Waterloo. Never claimed, sweet Cali is now estimated to be 2 to 3 years old. A gentle green-eyed girl with not an ounce of “Tortitude”, Cali is hoping for a quiet and attentive home. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. ABSOLUTE 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 lovely feline ladies with beautiful eyes, Stacey, Alexis, and Sydney, remain watching for you to come to the Shelter and take them to their forever home. SHELTER NEWS - Come on Down!! It’s time for the Shelter’s next big fundraiser, the Annual Garage Sale being held at Lott’s Farm on Route 414 south of Seneca Falls on Thursday thru Saturday, May 30 thru June 1. The old, wind damaged dog kennels at the Beverly Animal Shelter have been removed or fixed. HOWEVER, WITH THE WARM WEATHER, THE GRASS IS GROWING WHAT LOOKS TO BE “FEET PER DAY”! If you (and a friend or two) can help with the mowing (the Shelter does have their own riding lawn mower), please call the Shelter at 539-9357. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER HAS BEEN 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! GOOD NEWS - the Beverly Animal Shelter IS NOW OPEN normal hours 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. 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… Kitten Season is here! 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.
