Beverly Animal Shelter Pets of the Week: Newbies wary of their location

Whether they are big or small, old or young, cat or dog, when new pets arrive at the Beverly Animal Shelter they are wary of their new location. Some adjust quickly, while others may take weeks to adjust. Nevertheless, they all hope that their stay will be short. Can you help shorten the stay of this week’s pet?

GOTTI

Pit mix, Gotti was very recently surrendered due to allergies in the family. He is a playful, good boy who knows the commands of sit, stay and down. Black (or is he dark, dark brown) and white, Gotti is crate-trained, housebroken and walks well on a leash. He is up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered and micro-chipped before adoption.

POLLY

Quiet and shy, light brown, tiger girl Polly has been at BAS since mid-February after her owner passed away. She still misses her owner and would prefer a gentle home Without other Cats. Ten-year-old Polly is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped, and tested negative for both FIV and FeLeuk.

DAVE

 

You might want to call him Mr. Purrfect. Handsome Mr. Dave is a cuddly love. A recent arrival, he has longish, angora like, blackish gray fur with white feet and bib. Three-year-old Dave is declawed on his front feet. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and Fe-Leuk.

LAST WEEK’S PETS – Jazzie from last week’s pets is happy to announce her adoption. BooBoo and Shawna are waiting for their turn.

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…

Spring is here.  Kitten Season isn’t far behind. 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.
