Ten Lives Club non-profit cat rescue and adoption group just celebrated fourteen years as one of the leading cat rescues in Erie and Niagara counties.
Since 2001, lives of over 20,000 felines have been saved or assisted. Our mission statement reads, “too help promote, further and enhance the lives of all cats”. We daily do this with what we take on in the communities. We want to share with you the amazing year we had in 2014. Our organization took in 1,330 cats into our program. These were surrendered cats from all over, whether being stray cats, personal pets from those needing to give them up or the 576 that we took out of the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter to help. We managed to adopt out 1,321 cats and kittens through the 50 cages we have at various pet stores and malls or through our adoption center at our shelter or events we hold. We also spayed and neutered 829 in our cat shelter. We make sure every cat that leaves our program is spayed and neutered to help stop the serious cat overpopulation problem.
TLC runs on a budget of $350,000 a year as it takes a veterinary staff, small staff and cleaners to keep our shelter running seven days a week. We are like a hospital and no matter if a holiday or a snowstorm we need the necessary staff to tend to the healthy and sick cats in our care. We have over 150+ volunteers helping us with our cause and we have 10,000 supporters from all over NYS and the US that believe in us and contribute to keep us in business.
We know you realize what a major force we are in the animal rescue and services we provide. We thank all that have helped us to get to this successful point and we ask for your support and donations so we can continue to become bigger, better and brighter for those that need our help. Ten Lives Club is there to help the friendly, adoptable cats and the communities that need this help.
Please help us help them so we can be the voice for the cats. Click here to inquire about donations, or call 716-646-5577. Like us on facebook and check us out on twitter and our blog. We are sure you will like what you see and the statistics we report!
