PETS IN NEED OF LOVE – Mid August means only one thing at the Beverly Animal Shelter… Round II of the 2016 Kitten Season is here. But wait, there are many kittens from Round I ready and waiting for adoption! It is time to move them out! There are caring canines waiting too! Don’t let the heat slow you down. There is still time for the wanted new family member.
KITTENS! – Just a small sample, at approximately 14 weeks old, these active babes are ready for play and are in training for mousing! They are up to date on their kitten vaccinations. If not already, they will be spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and tested for FIV and FeLeuk before adoption. Why not take 2?
SAGE – Did you ever see such a sad looking dog? First introduced in July, Sage is an example of a fallen through adoption. A very large puppy girl, she was found in July running on RT 96. Although estimated to be a year and a half, Sage plays and cuddles like a pup – a pup who weighs 100 pounds. She is clean in her cage and good on a leash. A beautiful St. Bernard, Sage is up to date on her vaccinations, spayed and micro-chipped. St Bernards are gentle, friendly and tolerant of children. They are obedient and willing to please. However, because of their size, they must be socialized and taught to heel. Daily walks are a mental and physical necessity. If you are ready to give Sage what she needs, you will be rewarded with a devoted family member.
JEETER – A Blue Tick Coonhound mix, Jeeter was first adopted as a puppy from BAS. Now at 11 months of age and weighing about 50 pounds, Jeeter is back. His owners could no longer keep him. Although crate trained, Coonhounds are working dogs who need daily vigorous walks. They need a well-fenced yard, as they tend to follow their hound noses. They are passionate hunters. If you have the job for him, Jeeter is the man for you. Jeeter is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – All of last week’s felines rescued from the streets, Shelly, Fooey, and Sangria, remain waiting for their purrfect human.
Special Thanks go out this week to 5 special young ladies, Grace, Isabella, Alex, Ellie and Lulu, whose Lemonade stand on Clinton Street in Seneca Falls raised more than $100.00 for the Beverly Animal Shelter!! All of the residents of BAS say, “Thank You so Very Much!”
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.

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 10:00 am to 4:00 pm 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.
