PETS OF THE WEEK 6-7-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday June 6th 10:56pm
At the Beverly Animal Shelter all the pets are uniquely special. But, occasionally there are some real charmers. These charmers make you wonder, “Why are they at the Shelter?” Come visit The Beverly Animal Shelter and ask yourself, “How soon can I bring this wonderful creature home?”
Tyman the Wonder Dog! This boy wants to be a show dog/circus performer and that is his chosen name. Commands like sit, down, and shake are old hat to Tyman. He prefers the down and roll type trick. A medium sized, golden Shepherd/Lab mix who weighs about 70 to 75 pounds, Tyman even has the performer’s smile mastered. He might be 6 years old, judging by that “touch of gray” on his face. Tyman is extremely clean in his cage and walks well on a leash. If you are looking for a family dog, come get lost in Tyman’s beautiful brown eyes. He is up to date on his vaccinations and neutered.
When you are the biggest hunk of Siamese mix kitty, what else could your name be? Blue-eyed, cuddly love, Zee Gee is a mild-mannered fellow in search of a mild-mannered home. He doesn’t mind sharing his home with similar easy-going cats or dogs. Zee Gee would be the purrfect companion for an older person. He is thought to be about 5 years old and is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Do you need a little watchdog? Well golden red Dachshund, Sadie would love to interview for the position. A shy little girl who weighs in the 10 to 15 pound range, Sadie at first preferred the ladies at the Shelter. However, she is slowly gaining confidence in her gentlemen caregivers. Because of her petite size, children should be older and respectful. Estimated to be 7 years old, Sadie is up to date on her vaccinations and will soon be spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s lovable reruns, felines Jackson and Cali and canine Absolute, remain waiting for someone to love.
SHELTER NEWS -
After another very successful Garage Sale, SPECIAL THANKS go out to those responsible for the resounding success, the Garage sale Maven, Elsie and her Energizer Bunnies, Mimma and Paula, and the many volunteers who worked the sale, as well as, all who generously donated their saleable items and the wonderful folks who came to shop and purchase the goods.
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.
