PETS OF THE WEEK 6-21-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday June 20th 10:22pm
“Of all times to arrive at the Beverly Animal Shelter…!” That’s what these recent arrivals are saying. The first wave of the 2013 kitten season is reaching tsunami proportions. Even the “newbies” know that being thrown into that mix really lowers the odds of adoption. Might you have that little bit of room in your home and heart for just one more, furry pet?
Look into my eyes… I love you. I want you to love me. Please take me home. Lonesome Lott, an orange tiger with white legs mysteriously appeared on the Lott’s Farm just when the Shelter folks were setting up for the giant garage sale. You just couldn’t help but notice this handsome, golden-eyed young man. Lott is estimated to be less than one year old. He is currently up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered before adoption.
PUMPKIN (the Lady)
Not to be confused with the feline gentleman, Pumpkin, Pumpkin the Lady recently arrived with her babes in tow. The babes have found their homes, now it is beautiful Mama’s turn. One might think lovely Pumpkin is a Tortoiseshell patterned tiger. On closer scrutiny, one will see her white gloves, socks and bib along with the striking orang hat, patch on her face and dot on the tip of her tail. Green-eyed, affectionate Pumpkin is a very uniquely marked Calico Tiger, who is thought to be about one year old. She is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
And for you kitten shoppers, we present adorable, tuxedo wearing, longhaired baby boy Ethan, who is approximately 3 months old. An active ball of fur, Ethan is more than ready for play. However, we all must remember that at his age, Ethan is a delicate baby and must be treated gently. Handle this little purr-machine with care and will you receive many years of loving attention in return.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s anxious felines, Marsh(mallow) and Jethro, miniature canine, Popeye, and even those beautiful baby girls, Manni, Moe and Fisk, remain waiting for adoption.
SHELTER NEWS -
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.
