Along with the other feline residents, the moms and kittens of Round One of 2016 Kitten Season continue to wait for adoption at the Beverly Animal Shelter. It is that calm in the eye of the storm as Round Two arrives. The Petco in Auburn is going to help! They will be holding a Very Special Adoption Event in September. Watch for more information to follow. In the meantime, the following fine felines are waiting for you right now!
JACKIE – Unclaimed stray Jackie, a sickly mom with one healthy baby, was taken off the streets in mid-June. Her baby boy easily found a home, while the Shelter nursed Jackie back to health. Now she is a lovely, delicate girl who is waiting for a calm and gentle home. Mostly white with a couple of black “cow” patches and a charming white ring near the tip of her black tail, Jackie is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and Feleuk. She is thought to be about 2 years old.
GEORGE – Recent arrival George was surrendered because his owner could no longer care for him. He is still shy with the other Shelter cats but he certainly loves his people. George will definitely be your friend for life. A brown tiger with an exotic face and just a hint of possibly being a male Torbie, George is 7 years old, neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, micro-chipped and if not already will be tested for FIV and FeLeuk before adoption.
GARCIA AND MICKI – Calico Garcia arrived at the Shelter on April 14. Shortly thereafter, she delivered a surprise package of a beautiful baby girl. Garcia not only cared for her Torbie kitten Micki, but also became a foster Mom to many of the arriving kittens who needed special care. She continued to care for the little ones even after being spayed. Garcia is thought to be just 1 year old. She is up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for FIV and Fe-Leuk. Micki is now 4 months. She is up to date on her kitten vaccinations and will be spayed, micro-chipped and tested for Fiv and FeLeuk before adoption. Dallyn is requesting that Garcia and Micki be adopted together. You can have a ready made family!
LAST WEEK’S PETS – Some of the kittens pictured last week may be adopted but no worry, there are many more kittens waiting for loving homes. Last week’s canines Sage and Jeeter remain waiting for their furever home too.
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.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO VOLUNTEER YOUR HELP TO THE BEVERLY ANIMAL SHELTER? BUT CAN’T BE AT THE SHELTER FOR WHATEVER REASON (HOME COMMITMENTS, ALLERGIES ETC.) WELL, THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO HELP. HOW ABOUT:
HELPING WITH OFFSITE ADOPTION EVENTS
UPDATING THE BAS WEBSITE
POSTING PETS ON PETFINDER
KEEPING THE FINGER LAKES TIMES UPDATED WITH RECENT LOST & FOUND PETS.
THESE ARE JUST A FEW PLACES EXTRA HANDS AND MINDS ARE NEEDED REGULARLY. CALL THE SHELTER AT 539-9357 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE EVEN JUST A LITTLE BIT OF YOUR TIME.
Unfortunately, The Purina Pets for Seniors Fund has been DISCONTINUED. However, BAS is attempting to continue Senior adoptions on an individual basis through the generosity of others.
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. Please be advised that the Shelter website has changed to simply http://www.beverlyanimalshelter.com.
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, 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!!
The Shelter is no longer accepting scrap metal to recycle. However, they continue to accept 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…
Round II of Kitten Season is well underway!! 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 10:00AM to 4:00PM 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.
