PETS OF THE WEEK 7-19-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday July 18th 9:29pm
Is Halloween your favorite Holiday? Well, if you want to beat the Halloween rush for felines who reflect the beautiful colors of Fall, The Beverly Animal Shelter may have the purrfect ladies (and one little girl) for you. Come on down and meet…
FAITH & HOPE
Two lovely, quiet but cuddly, ladies who were surrendered because their owner could no longer care for them. Unique (you don’t find many orange/red female cats) orange and white tiger, Faith has one white front leg and one orange front leg. She loves to be held. Hope is a dark Torti with mysterious eyes. These girls are estimated to be just over two years old. They are up to date on their vaccinations and spayed.
What a BABE! Adorable, purr machine, Masquerade has a half-orange and half-black face. She was supposedly thrown from a car but holds no grudges. Petite Masquerade, who is now thought to be about 9 weeks old, is currently out on foster care. Please don’t let that stop you from meeting this little Miss. Simply contact the Shelter prior to your visit if you would like to be introduced to her. Masquerade is up to date on her kitten vaccinations.
Elegant and enchanting, Twitchie arrived with her beautiful black and white kittens (who are also available for adoption). Hoping to give Mom a head start at finding a home of her own, we are featuring Twitchie first. A sweet girl with solid black fur and pale yellow eyes, she is less than 2 years old, up to date on her vaccinations, and will be spayed very soon.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s variety of pets, the feline kittens, Northern, Adam and all the Ice Cream babes and the smiley little canines, Chipper and Zapper, remain waiting for you.

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.
