PETS OF THE WEEK 7-26-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday July 25th 10:07pm
Are you an action type of person? Or are you the quiet cuddly type? In either case, The Beverly Animal Shelter has the pet for you. How about…
A sweet, sweet girl, Tina is an unclaimed stray who arrived at the Shelter in early July. Although she had indications of having had puppies, Tina looks like a pup herself. A brindle, Boxer/American Staffordshire mix, she is thought to be no more than 1 year old and only weighs about 30 pounds. Tina has a happy, inquisitive face. She longs for petting. Tina has lots of potential. She is clean in her cage, walks well on a leash, is not a big barker, is very friendly and is learning commands. Tina is spayed and is up to date on her vaccinations. She will make a wonderful companion for someone.
An easygoing dark tiger with a white bib and booties, Zoie is a leftover Mom from 2012. You’ll find this loving cuddle bug with beautiful golden eyes, looking for a lap in Dallyn’s office. Zoie is estimated to be 3 to 5 years old. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
All right you action lovers, Tug is here to plead his case one more time. Handsome, predominately white, tri-color Hound, Tug is going on 2 and has the youthful exuberance of his age. With a smiley face and waggie tail, Tug loves people, is clean in his cage and is looking forward to being a part of an active family. However, his natural hunting tendencies require no small animals be a part of that family. Tug might be mostly muscle but he only weighs about 35 to 40 pounds. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - All of last week’s early Halloween felines, Faith & Hope, little Masquerade, and enchanting Twitchie, remain waiting to become your purr machine Treat.
SHELTER NEWS - This weekend the Summer Fundraisers continue!
This Saturday, July 27 will be the annual WINE, PAWS & CLAWS at Swedish Hill Winery on Route 414 from Noon till 5:00PM to benefit the Beverly Animal Shelter. There will be free entertainment and fun for all!
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.
