Pets of the Week: Meet Sally Sue, Adrianne & Sarge

Yes, the Beverly Animal Shelter does have dogs available for adoption! And of course, some very fine felines.

This is it… The Petco in Auburn will be holding a Very Special Adoption Event Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, from 10am to 6pm.

Don’t miss it!

SALLY SUE Miss Sally Sue was brought to BAS for a second chance at life when her time was up with another dog warden. With a smiley face and waggy tail, she’s an exuberant girl who is thought to be no more than 1 year old. A small Black Lab mix, Sally Sue weighs around 40 pounds. She is looking for a devoted family who will make her a participating member of their family. Like to jog? Take Sally Sue with you. At a minimum, she needs good long walks morning and night. Sally Sue is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and micro-chipped.

ADRIANNE – An unclaimed stray, Adrianne arrived at the end of May. She is an ever so sweet girl who speaks volumes with her eyes. A dark Tiger with white paws and a white bib, Adrianne is estimated to be 3 years old. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for FeLeuk and FIV. Adrianne is ready to be your lap cat.

SARGE Wonderful Sarge has been “stood up” twice. The first time, he waited over a month for a supposed adopter who never showed. In August, it happened again. Please be the family he needs. 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 boy waiting to brighten your day. He arrived full of youthful exuberance. During his stay, Sarge 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 mix with reddish brown fur, Sarge is now 15 months old and weighs around 55 pounds or so. 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. Sarge is up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered and micro-chipped. By the way, he loves to play in his kiddie pool on hot Summer, or Fall, days and looks forward to having his shoulders rubbed.

LAST WEEK’S PETS – All of last week’s felines, Dusty, Bombay and Twinkie, remain waiting for their purrfect home.

SHELTER NEWS

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 beverlyshelter@yahoo.com.

Yes, you can still view our pets on Petfinder.com, but have you had difficulty getting more up to date information on the Beverly Animal Shelter? There is always the very informative Beverly Animal Shelter Online found at http://beverlyanimalshelter.com/ where most of your questions can easily be answered.
