PETS OF THE WEEK 6-22-12posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Friday June 22nd 9:18pm
Sometimes you just need that unconditional love. Someone who knows your shortcomings, listens to your problems and still loves YOU. This week the Beverly Animal Shelter would like to introduce you to some truly big (and not so big) hunks of unconditional love.
They don’t come much bigger than this handsome hunk of love. Four year old, mantle (black and white markings similar to the Boston Terrier) Great Dane, Duke arrived as a shy, frightened boy. However, training and attention transformed sweet Duke. For the person with previous experience with a Great Dane, Duke is perfect. He is housebroken, walks well on a leash (and this boy does require a daily walk), and knows basic commands like sit, stay and down. Duke gets along with other dogs, cats and children. (Due to Duke’s 120 pounds of love, we recommend children be older than 10.) He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Not a big hunk but a petite love, little Ms Zoey has the most incredible golden eyes. A dark tiger who wears white boots, Zoey arrived in May with her babes in tow. The babes have found homes but not their sweet Mom. Thought to be around 2 years old, Zoey would prefer to be an only cat. You can tell she likes to keep her eyes out for any and all mice. Zoey is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
Found as a stray, pure white (except for an off-white tail) Simon might be considered simple. He likes the simple life, peace and quiet and lots of loving. Estimated to be 2 to 4 years old, Simon does enjoy playing with his favorite toy, the kickaroo that is sold in the store. You’ll find the kickaroos hanging high on the wall out of the reach of very eager paws. So whether you need a lapcat or a playmate, irresistible Simon may be the purrfect feline for you. He is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s pets still waiting for adoption, Bootsie, Theodore, Dena and Kenworth, remain hoping that you might be the one. Jasper, from the summer project canines featured on 6-8-12, is happy to announce his adoption. His comrades, Cheyenne and Tobey, remain waiting for you!

With the nice weather here, remember that the Dave Pullen Memorial Dog Park at the Beverly Animal Shelter is open Monday-Saturday, 9am-5pm. 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!
Beverly Animal Shelter now has a new Pet Groomer. Christine is available Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Please call or stop by the store for prices and booking an appointment.
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…
THANK YOU FOR THE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE PAST YEAR!!
Kitten Season is here! To help out, please go to www.FirstGiving.com/bas.
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.
Regarding the Purina Pets for Seniors, Please check with the Shelter for what is available in 2012.
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.
