Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We adopt to just about anywhere. We do not ship animals and encourage you to come meet the animal you are interested in adopting. We are a small no kill shelter that runs only on donations.
About Our Shelter:Originally founded in 1958 by Gladys Schultz (and fondly known as "Schultz's), the Beverly Animal Shelter is located in Waterloo, New York. Since Glady's passing in 1991, the shelter has been owned and operated by Dallyn Jenkins. At that time the shelter was named after Jenkins own mother Beverly, an animal lover and Glady's friend.
The BAS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and no-kill facility. Only animals that are too aggressive or that are terminal and in pain are humanely euthanized. The shelter utilizes local vets for medical care and advice for its animals. We do not euthanize an animal to make space, nor do we pick or choose "optimal" animals to take in. For this reason many animals may spend their entire life at our shelter. These are the special animals that many other shelters deem un-adoptable and would put down or not accept due to their behavioral, medical or just plain quirky conditions.
For 48 years the BAS has operated entirely on generous donations from the public. The shelter takes in nearly 1000 cats and dogs each year, as well as small reptiles, ferrets, and small animals. Because space is limited and the shelter is run almost entirely on donations, a donation is appreciated when turning in an animal to the shelters care. This donation helps provide food and supplies, vet care, the spay or neuter of the animal if not already done, as well as pay for the utilities, maintenance and repair of our facility. BAS is run on an absolute shoestring! We can not take every animal brought to the shelter, but we try! Please stop by the shelter and visit our animals and see what we are all about!
