Pets of the Week: Sweet & Loving Girls

You’ve heard the sayings… “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and “Do not judge a book by its cover”. Those two phrases definitely apply to this week’s pets. These three, equally sweet and loving girls can be found at the Beverly Animal Shelter. They would like to meet you!

NELLIE NELSON

Black Boxer/Pit Bull

A sizable black, stray dog suffering from malnutrition, Nellie arrived in early July. She only felt safe when crated. It took a bit to build up her body. Thought to be a Boxer/Pit Bull mix, Nellie may look quite formidable with her snaggle tooth (hidden in this photo). However, she is simply the sweetest dog around. Nellie is a smiley girl with a waggie tail. She is estimated to be 4 to 5 years and weighs around 70 pounds. Inquisitive Nellie is discovering her world and loves her biscuits. She is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed and micro-chipped before adoption.

 

ISABELLE

Isabelle also arrived, along with her family, in early July. The kittens were thought to be about 3 weeks old at the time. Isabelle has grown into a lovely little girl who wears a black tuxedo with white gloves and white boots. She has a white jewel on her forehead and has the beginnings of a white moustache.   Isabelle is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and Fe-Leuk. She also has a sister, Ava, with very similar markings. There is a special on these two 5-month-old kittens… Adopt one and get 50% off the adoption fee for the second!

 

WILMA

 

Arriving as a stray in late October, tri-color Beagle Wilma has gone unclaimed. Still on the shy side, she is none-the-less adorable. A gentle lady, Wilma is about 6 years old and weighs 20 to 25 pounds. She is up to date on her vaccinations and if not already, will be spayed and micro-chipped before adoption.

 

LAST WEEK’S PETS – Sister kittens, Catherine and Winters, from last week’s pets, are happy to announce their adoption. While black, teenage kitten, Satchmo and teenage, Black Lab, Chase remain waiting for their forever home.

SHELTER NEWS

From now, until January 1, 2017 here’s an adoption special … all cats 2 years and older will be only $9.85!

Pictures with Santa will be on Sunday, November 20 from noon to 4.

End of the Year brings our request for your “Happy Tail”. Have you adopted a pet featured here? Have they made your life that much better? Please send a note about your pet and a recent picture. We’d like to share your success.

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.
