Santa recently visited the Beverly Animal Shelter to help the residents have a Merry Christmas. The potential pets expressed their hopes to someday have their very own furever homes. To encourage the older cat adoptions, all Felines 2 years old and older have a special low-cost adoption fee of only $9.85 until January 1, 2017. Wouldn’t you like to make a wish come true for one of these lovable creatures? They are waiting for you at the Beverly Animal Shelter.
Please remember, the end of the Year brings our request for your “Happy Tail”. Have you adopted a pet featured here? Have they made your life that much better? Please send a note about your pet and a recent picture. We’d like to share your success.
Sweet as sugar, dark brown brindle Doogie has the most beautiful brown eyes to go with his wonderful personality. He is such a good boy. Estimated to be 3 years old, Doogie is very clean in his cage, excellent on a leash and not a big barker. Not only is he playful, he knows how to sit and shake. A Pit mix, Doogie is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped. He weighs approximately 70 pounds.
Estimated to be only 1 year old, beautiful dark Torti, Gisela arrived in mid-September with 3 very young kittens. She is now spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped and tested negative for Fe-Leuk. Healthy and happy now, Gisela did test positive for FIV, which is not a death sentence. Her two remaining kittens will be spayed and micro-chipped shortly. They then too, will be available for adoption.
Everybody’s favorite at the Shelter, American Pit Bull Terrier Kristy is a short, chubby girl who weighs about 45 to 50 pounds. She wears a black tuxedo with a white bib and has white toes. Estimated to be 2 years old, Kristy is smart as a whip, walks well on a leash, is clean in her cage, knows her name and knows some basic commands. She is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed and micro-chipped shortly.
LAST WEEK’S PETS – All of last week’s hopeful pets, canine Happy and felines Max and Tink, remain waiting for someone who wants them.
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 [email protected]
