Beaumont Animal Care

For the month of August, Beaumont Animal Care reports a live release rate of 81 per cent at the animal shelter. The live release rate refers to the percentage of animals that leave the shelter alive. Animals leave the shelter through being reclaimed by their owner, being adopted into a new home, being released into a trap-neuter-return program, being released into temporary foster care, or being transferred to a separate agency, such as a rescue organization. In the month of August, 353 animals were brought to the shelter and 288 animals left the shelter alive.

Beaumont Animal Care (BAC) has released their euthanasia rates for the period of January through May for 2018. 

BAC’s percentage of animals euthanized has declined from 51 percent in 2016 to 21 percent for the same time period in 2018. BAC has been working to reach the goal of 10 percent or less of animals euthanized in the shelter. To meet this goal BAC is asking the public to consider adopting a pet from them. BAC says that they have many “wonderful” dogs and cats that are all fully vaccinated, micro chipped and spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Binky the cat

This is Binkey, our sweet gal. She is a loving, kind, young, black and white female domestic house cat. Probably in human years, Binky is equivalent to a teenager. And with any teenager, Binky loves attention, toys and, of course, the ever famous “head and ear scratch.” Unlike most teenagers, she is very neat with her litter box and keeps a clean kennel. Binky gets along with other cats and would be a great companion. Binky can be seen at Beaumont Animal Care, 1884 Pine St., Beaumont. Ask for No. 31865.

Sienna the chocolate lab

Sienna is a young adult female chocolate lab and weighs about 45 pounds. Sienna has been at the shelter since late October and is such a sweet dog that we cannot believe no one has adopted her. She has a wonderful personality, loves the water and enjoys play-time. She is curious and gets along with other dogs. She is tired of the cold concrete floor and yearns for a soft bed. Sienna would be the perfect dog for a hike or camping, or long walks on the beach. If you are looking for love and a loyal companion, Sienna is waiting for you!

Rosie the terrier

Rosie is a young, black/brindle female terrier mix. She may also have a dash of Chihuahua mixed in too. Rosie is quiet, very sweet and crate trained. She loves any attention she can get and will curl up in your lap. Rosie sits in the shelter lobby each day watching and waiting and hoping the next guest will pick her. So far, no luck. This girl is going to make a darling companion to take on car rides, evening walks, and be that quiet friend to watch all of those holiday movies with!
