Beverly Shelter Pets of the Week: Remnants of Kitten Season Round 1

September brings hurricanes and the remnants of Kitten Season Round I. Mother cats who were found in someone’s garage or under a porch. The babes have moved on or are still waiting for their spay or neutering. These Moms and kittens need to find homes. Round II is in progress right now.

Be sure to watch for the Cat & Kitten adoption event Saturday & Sunday, September 9 & 10, at Petco in Auburn from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days.

PEANUT

A gentle girl with enchanting green eyes.   Estimated to be 3 years old, Peanut arrived in early June. She is more than ready for a loving home of her own. The question is… Can this muted/dilute, tortoise shell patterned, feline with white paws be really considered a calico patterned cat? The debate is endless. Peanut is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FIV and Fe-Leuk

CHIP

Just about 4 months old, Miss Chip is a silver grey and white tiger with white feet. Like the other kittens in waiting, she is a playful little girl who likes to be cuddled. Chip is spayed, up to date on her kitten vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for FIV and Fe-Leuk.

DIVIA

A delicate green-eyed Torbie (Tortie with Tabby stripes), Divia has an orange dot on her forehead to certify her Tortie/Torbie status. Estimated to be just one year old, she is a sweet, gentle girl who also arrived in early June with kittens in tow. Now spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped, and testing negative for both FIV and Fe-Leuk, Divia is ready for a caring forever home.

LAST WEEK’S PETS – Poe from last week’s kittens is happy to announce his adoption. His sisters, tiger Connie and black Dipsy, remain ready and waiting for their home. Red brothers, Phil and Dill, are hoping to be on Friday’s (9/8) neutering schedule. The petite baby girls, Sophia and Alena, remain waiting for their turn.

SHELTER NEWS

As a service to the community, the Beverly Animal Shelter has added a crematory for animal cremation, both individual and group. Call the Shelter at (315)539-9357 for more information.

Once again, the Beverly Animal Shelter will have a subsidized Spay & Neuter program for low-income pet owners. This is made possible by a generous Grant from the ASPCA. The Beverly Animal Shelter extends an appreciative “Thank You” to the ASPCA for their consideration.

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 –

Seneca Falls has had a limit of only 3 dogs allowed for decades. The Town of Tyre has also 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…

Summer is here. Kitten Season (round two) is in full swing! BAS needs your help! 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.
