The end of 2016 means it is the time to celebrate the year’s Happy & Successful Adoptions from the Beverly Animal Shelter. Here is a small sample of the many pets who are celebrating their new furever homes.
SARG first featured April 2016
Coming from the Syracuse area, Sarg was taken in for a second chance at life at BAS. Full of youthful exuberance, Sarg is a handsome Chocolate Lab/Pit Bull mix. He is 10 months old and weighs around 55 pounds. This sweetheart has a lot of potential! Sarg is good with other dogs, clean in his cage and is learning how to walk on a leash. Because of his exuberance, older children only are recommended and please no cats. Sarg is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and if not already, will be micro-chipped before adoption.
Author’s note: In May, someone indicated they would adopt Sarg but needed a bit of time. Sarg was then put “on hold”. Months went by until late July when the potential adoption was cancelled. Sarg was again placed on the available list. Knowing what a wonderful dog he was, Sarg was featured 3 more times on FL1 and the FL Times.
September 2016 – Sarg description update: …Please be the family he needs. It has been a while, but Sarg is still a happy boy waiting to brighten your day. He arrived full of youthful exuberance. During his stay, Sarg has mellowed. Now 15 months old, he has hopes of someday being a couch potato. Couch potato or not, remember all dogs need regular walks. 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, 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.
SARG now known as COOPER:
“When I first adopted Cooper in September I was preparing myself for the worst with rescuing my first dog. Little did I know Cooper would turn out to be the most lovable, well-trained dog I could ask for. He was already housebroken and extremely friendly with everyone. Cooper loves to cuddle and thinks he is a big lap dog. I found out very quickly that he loves water when he jumped in the shower with me! Cooper loves the hot tub, playing with the hose or simply running around in the snow. He is learning new tricks and making new friends easily. He also makes a great heater on these chilly nights. I will definitely be coming back when we are ready to rescue a friend for Cooper.” Sierra, Cooper & Brent
MAGGIE & HANNAH 10-7-16
A petite, dark Torti purr-machine, Maggie is just about 4 months old. With yellow-green eyes and silky fur, she’s a cuddly little girl. Golden-eyed Hannah is a fine-boned sweetie. She is thought to be 3½ months old. They are up to date on their kitten vaccinations and will be spayed, micro-chipped and tested for FIV and Fe-Leuk shortly.
MAGGIE & HANNAH now with LITTLE GIRL
We adopted Maggie & Hannah as companions for our 4-year-old cat, Little Girl. Little Girl was a quiet girl who was ignored by our now 18 year old cat. When Little Girl lost her companion and playmate, Mischief, to an accident, Little Girl did not know what to do. She waited for Mischief to return to their favorite spot outdoors. Little Girl was so depressed. However, within one month of Maggie and Hannah’s arrival, Little Girl was playing and sleeping with them. We have our happy family back! Maggie is a sweetie but she does have a small streak of stubborn “Torti-tude”. Hannah is very loving and gentle. I know you will see us again. We were very impressed. Sincerely & Affectionately, Tony and Janet
Surrendered due to unfortunate circumstances, Cashes is 2½ years old. He is a clean in his cage, good on a leash and not a big barker. A black, brindle Pit with white toes, bib and a white spot on top of his nose and the tip of his tail, Cashes is estimated to weigh 65 to 70 pounds. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations and if not already, Cashes will be micro-chipped before adoption.
CASHES now known as JONNY CASH with SAIGE
We went and met a lot of dogs but everyone agreed this little man was meant to be with us. His name is now Jonny Cash and he has brought much joy to our home in the short time he has been here. Thank you Beverly Animal Shelter for your patience and time to help us make the RIGHT choice. But you do have to agree Saige and Jonny were the ones who made their choice together. Mike & Lou S. Phelps
LAST WEEK’S PETS – All of last week’s pets still waiting for their furever home, felines Sadie and Mavis and canine Ashley, remain waiting at the Beverly Animal Shelter.
From now, until January 1, 2017, there’s an adoption special … all cats 2 years and older will be only $9.85!
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…
Winter 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 10:00AM 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.
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.
