Beverly Animal Shelter Pets of the Week: Time to find a home

The start of 2017 brings a review of the pets that were received and became residents of the Beverly Animal Shelter during 2016. 427 cats entered the ranks. Most required vaccinations and spay or neutering. In addition, they were tested for diseases and microchipped for adoption. 275 dogs went through the ranks. They too required vaccinations and spay or neutering. For adoption, the dogs were micro-chipped. There was food, vet visits, shelter and warmth among the necessities provided. Still the homeless keep coming. Among the current residents waiting for their forever home are…

TEFFER

A beautiful girl with the softest fur, Teffer arrived on July 1, 2016. She was found abandoned in a parking lot in Waterloo after a tenant moved. Teffer is a Torbie (tri-color Tortis with Tabby cat stripes or swirls in their fur). Tortis and Calicos as well, are known to have a bit of “tude” (attitude). On the other hand, Torbies often have an easygoing attitude. They just don’t like to be picked up. However, they do love to be petted. We have Teffer, a dark Torbie. She has the face of a cat with “tude”. However, Teffer is a sweet girl who loves to be petted. She simply doesn’t like crowds. Teffer is 3 to 4 years old, spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and FeLeuk.

FRANKIE

A purebred Dachshund without papers, Frankie arrived at BAS in early October as an unclaimed stray. His Dachshund genes make him an active guy looking for adventure. Estimated to be 8 years old and weighing about 15 pounds, Frankie is looking for someone who will take him on daily walks. He is housebroken, good on a leash and not a big barker. Dark brown and black (sable?) Frankie is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and if not already, can be micro-chipped before adoption. He is available for adoption or fostering.

DEALER

Nine to ten month old Dealer has a unique black “paw print” on her right side. She arrived in early December when the strays inhabiting the Del Lago were removed. A sweet and quiet girl, young Dealer is still getting used to the activity in the Beverly Animal Shelter. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and FeLeuk. Dealer is hoping she wins her furever 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…

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 beverlyshelter@yahoo.com.

There is always the very informative Beverly Animal Shelter Online found at http://beverlyanimalshelter.com/ where most of your questions can easily be answered.
