PETS OF THE WEEK 9-27-13posted by Beverly Animal Shelter on Thursday September 26th 11:30pm
As Fall officially begins, the potential pets at the Beverly Animal Shelter hope they might find their forever home before Winter. Please meet three handsome and very lovable gentlemen who are waiting to meet you!
An absolutely adorable 3 to 4 month old little golden boy. Chester’s eyes are so golden, he could be called Midas. The name Chester fits him very well though. He loves to be cuddled. Chester is simply a love bug. He is up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered before adoption.
An unclaimed stray who arrived in late August, charming 1 to 2 year old Schiller likes hanging out on the cat climbing tree. He gets along with all but especially likes his people. Green-eyed Schiller has Tabby swirls rather than Tiger stripes in his red fur. Schiller is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.
Captivating Shorty is an unclaimed stray who recently arrived at the Shelter. Although he’s a little guy who weighs about 30 to 35 pounds, Shorty has an imposing baritone voice. He’s really a sweet boy who is believed to be a Corgi/Huskie(?)/Hound(??) mix. Well aside from the Corgi, who knows what else is Shorty’s parentage. Take this guy for who he is right now. Shorty is estimated to be about 3 years old. He is up to date on his vaccinations and if not already, will be neutered before adoption.
LAST WEEK’S PETS - Playful Timmy from last week’s black beauties has been adopted. Little Dautson, Rocky Road, petite Kelly, and hunkie Bruce remain waiting for their purrfect human.
SHELTER NEWS -

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.
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)?

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. Be sure to wash out your returnables.
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.
