PETS OF THE WEEK 6-13-14posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday June 12th 10:42pm
Did you know The American Humane Society has named June as Adopt A Cat Month? Apparently, The Beverly Animal Shelter is not the only shelter in need of forever homes for their loving felines. So remember to take some time to get to know the wonderful animals available at the Beverly Animal Shelter.
How could this exquisite feline be overlooked for the last 2 years? A non-assuming dark tiger with little white boots, golden eyes and the most incredible whiskers, Roseanne was just about 1 year old when she arrived at BAS in February 2012. A sweet, quiet girl she has been lost in the crowd. She currently resides in the “old cat room”, away from the Shelter traffic. If you are looking for a gentle companion, make sure you look her up. Roseanne is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
A traditional Siamese mix with blue (grey) points and striking blue eyes, Siam II is another shy girl. She arrived at the shelter last Summer and has finally adjusted to the hustle and bustle of Shelter activity. She is estimated to be 4 to 5 years old. A calm, petite lady, Siam II will be the purrfect companion for a peaceful person. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
A silky young black beauty, Shade just arrived with her kittens in early May. Now that her babies have found homes, golden-eyed Shade is ready to find a home of her own. A very petite girl, Shade is estimated to be no more than 2 years old. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
A beautiful combination of Siamese and muted Calico, petite, sapphire blue-eyed Oriental is a recent arrival at BAS. An unclaimed stray, she is now available for adoption. Sweet Oriental is looking forward to a quiet home where she can finally feel safe. Thought to be 2 to 3 years old, lovely Oriental is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Riddle from last week’s unique felines is happy to announce her adoption. While Lulu, Chip and Kassie remain waiting for their purrfect human.
Winter is gone, but along with Sundays, the Beverly Animal Shelter will continue to be closed on Wednesdays.
IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THAT OLD ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT (like grandma’s old scanner or your old cell phone and computer), YOU WERE THINKING ABOUT DONATING TO THE SHELTER FOR RECYCLING this Spring, please be patient. Due to repair and construction delays on the Shelter grounds, recycled items cannot be accepted until sometime in June. Watch for further information.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO VOLUNTEER YOUR HELP TO THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER? BUT CAN’T BE AT THE SHELTER FOR WHATEVER REASON (HOME COMMITMENTS, ALLERGIES ETC.) WELL, THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO HELP. HOW ABOUT:

Unfortunately, The Purina Pets for Seniors Fund has been DISCONTINUED for 2014. There are no monies available.
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. The topics are well covered and soon, much more information will be added.
Once the Spring rains dry, why not take the opportunity to spend 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!!
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. Be sure to wash out your returnables.
SHELTER NEEDS –
With the disappearance of their old Weed Whacker, Dallyn and the Shelter Staff are asking for the donation of a weed whacker to help control the Shelter vegetation.
Thanks so much for your consideration!
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…
It is Spring! The 2014 Kitten Season is here! To help the Shelter out, please go to www.FirstGiving.com/bas. Or, stop by the Shelter and adopt an older leftover 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.
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.
