At the Beverly Animal Shelter, most of the pets are waiting to be adopted. Occasionally, a pet is promised an adoption. They patiently wait only to find that the adopter has changed their mind. Weeks have been wasted. This week’s special feature is Sarg who is tired of waiting for a no show. Two lovely young Torbie/Torti felines follow.
SARG – Coming from the Syracuse area early in the Spring, Sarg was taken in for a second chance at life at BAS. It has been a while, but Sarg is still a happy, smiley guy waiting to brighten your day. He arrived full of youthful exuberance. During his stay, Sarg has mellowed. He has hopes of someday being a couch potato. Couch potato or not, remember all dogs need regular walks. A handsome Chocolate Lab/Pit Bull mix, Sarg is now 14 months old and weighs around 55 pounds. This sweetheart has a lot of potential! Sarg is good with other dogs, clean in his cage, walks well on leash and he’s not a big barker. He is looking for a family who will make him an integral part of their pack. Sarg is up to date on his vaccinations, heart worm negative, and if not already, will be neutered and micro-chipped before adoption. By the way, he loves to play in his kiddie pool on hot Summer days.
TEFFER – Teffer is a Torbie. Take red (or maybe orange or cream) add in some black (or grey or chocolate) and mix well. You have a Tortoiseshell (aka Torti) patterned cat. Now if the black, grey or chocolate is in the stripes or swirls of a Tabby pattern, you have a tortoiseshell tabby i.e. a Torbie. Tortis, and Calicos as well, are known to have a bit of “tude” (attitude). Torbies, on the other hand, often have an easygoing attitude. They just don’t like to be picked up. But they do love to be petted. Therefore, we have Teffer the Torbie. She has the face of a cat with “tude”. Teffer however, is a sweet girl who loves to be petted but please don’t pick her up until she gets to know you. She was found behind the stores in Waterloo when a tenant moved out. Teffer, who has the softest fur, was abandoned. She is 3 years old, spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and FeLeuk.
CHARLOTTE – One year old, cuddly Charlotte is a shy girl who just arrived at BAS in early May. She is still getting used to her new location, but Charlotte does feel quite comfortable when she is in someone’s arms. A g dark Torti, Charlotte does have a slightly cleft lip. It does not hamper her one bit. Charlotte is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and FeLeuk. She is hoping for a quiet and loving home. She is available for adoption or fostering.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – Sage from last week’s “Dog Days” is happy to announce her adoption. While Summer and Monty remain waiting for their furever home.
The Beverly Animal Shelter is currently offering potential “barn” cats – neutered/spayed and vaccinated, friendly, outdoor cats who are good mousers, for $10. Please contact the Shelter for more information.
The new Integrated Veterinary Service has begun at the Beverly Animal Shelter. Although held only once or twice a month, the long wait for spay or neutering has been greatly reduced! Call the Shelter to make your appointment. They are now taking reservations.
DUE TO THE DECREASE IN GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES, THE LOCAL RECYCLERS OF ELECTRONICS HAVE CLOSED DOWN. THEREFORE, THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING ELECTRONICS FOR RECYCLING.

Why not take the opportunity to spend some playtime with your favorite canine. The Dave Pullen Memorial Dog Park at the Beverly Animal Shelter is open Monday-Saturday, 10 am-4 pm. 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!!

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 has arrived!! BAS needs you! To help the Shelter out, please go to www.FirstGiving.com/bas.
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.
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.
We invite you to come and meet our wonderful creatures in person. The Shelter is open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM daily EXCEPT SUNDAY and Wednesday. The store is open from 9:00 to 6:00 Monday to Friday and 9:00 to 4:00 Saturday. Questions, call (315)539-9357 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
