PETS OF THE WEEK 8-23-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday August 22nd 10:53pm
The coffers of the Beverly Animal Shelter are overflowing. Not with valuables such as shiny jewels or cash, but the Shelter coffers are overflowing with the sweetest, most valuable feline “jewels”. The following ladies have put their time in and are ready for that purrfect home of their own.
Unclaimed cuddly stray, Bess and her son, Truman, were found in Trumansburg in February. While Truman quickly found a home, petite, 1 to 2 year old, Bess remains patiently waiting for hers. Decked out in her tuxedo finest, she has charming white whiskers that draw attention to her unique face. Bess is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
Enchanting, green-eyed Lake is the absolute sweetest cat you will meet! She arrived at the shelter at the beginning of the year as a stray and sadly, was not reclaimed. A dark Torti, Lake has gorgeous long hair, which has recently been trimmed. She is estimated to be about 2 years old. An exotic social butterfly, Lake gets along with everyone at the shelter. Lake would make a wonderful family pet or even a fantastic first cat for someone who enjoys brushing her fur. She is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.
HARTZ/ aka MADDIE
Quiet and shy, Hartz arrived at the Shelter a few years ago, suffering from an overdose of over-the-counter flea medication. Wishing for a calm, caring environment, she is a very sweet girl who gets along well with other animals. White with lots of tiger patches in her medium length fur, and pale green eyes, Hartz is an attractive girl who had been adopted. However, she was returned for being “too quiet”. So if you are looking for a calm and unobtrusive companion, Hartz may be the girl for you. She is thought to be about 5 years old, is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
“Aren’t I simply the cutest?” A quiet but cuddly, lady, Faith was surrendered along with her friend, Hope, 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. Estimated to be just over two years old, Faith is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Last week’s felines in search of caring families, Chewie, Java, Americana and her beautiful babes (except for Ferdinand) remain patiently waiting for their adoption.

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.
