THIS SWEET BOY IS TOM!
Tom is a beautiful 2 year old boy who gets along with everyone & loves to play with all the other kitties too! He is a super friendly guy who just wants to find his purrson to give him a forever home. Tom was found as a stray and surrendered to TLC. He was probably abandoned by his previous owner because he had already been neutered.
Poor Tom was scared and wounded. He had some nasty scrapes on his nose & paws that were painful and bloody when he first came to us.
Ten Lives Club shelter Vet, Dr. Fisk & her Vet assistants gently cleaned and treated his wounds. With the medical care and attention he received in our infirmary, it wasn't long before he was ready to find his new home!
Tom just wants the love and kindness he's never known during his two short years of life. We can only image what he must've endured before coming to us. Even so, he's extremely affectionate and a sweet-natured boy who has so much love to give!
Visit Tom at the Ten Lives Club Pet Supplies "Plus" adoption location at 9630 Transit Rd. in East Amherst. He will steal your heart!

TLC DONATES MUCH NEEDED FOOD TO LOCAL RESCUES
Last Thursday, Ten Lives Club arranged for a truck delivery of desperately needed canned cat and dog food to eight local rescue organizations. Pictured left: Trisha, Liz & Edie from Feral Cat Focus.
Without the generous donations of Ten Lives Club supporters, we could not have helped these other rescues who do so much for homeless cats and dogs in our local communities. TLC strongly believes in working with other rescue organizations to benefit the same mutual goal - To find homes for all homeless cats and dogs.
However, Ten Lives Club has recently lost grant funding through Maddie's Fund we have relied on for the past 5 years. At the same time, we have been growing and helping more and more homeless cats every year. We also help the Buffalo City Shelter by taking in cats from their facility due to overcrowding.
Ten Lives also recently partnered with the Niagara County SPCA in March. We've agreed to take in 20 cats and kittens each month to help with the overflowing numbers of homeless cats in their facility.
By meeting Maddie's monthly adoption quotas, Ten Lives has rescued over 8,000
cats in the past five years! Their monthly quotas weren't easy to reach and it took a lot of hard work but we did it to rescue as many cats as we possibly could. In
return, TLC was granted over 2 million dollars over the past five years
through Maddie's Fund.
Ten Lives worked hard for and depended on Maddie's funding each month. It helped us with the expenses incurred by providing for the cats in our care. With this loss, it has put our organization in a critical financial situation.
Every day we
have over 100 cats to feed, care for and medicate. Some with chronic health
issues and are harder to place. Ten Lives has 40+ cats in our care with chronic medical issues. They need daily medications, special diets and treatments. Many of these cats have been with us for a very long time. This group alone incurs a lot of expenses for their specialized care.
In addition to the 100+ cats and kittens that come to Ten Lives every month, we now help other shelters but have less financial support. We are struggling from month to month just to keep our doors open and continue our mission.
Ten Lives Club is determined to keep our efforts going strong for the welfare of all homeless cats and kittens. We have continued to grow and rescue more cats than ever before. But without the financial support of Maddie grants, it has put Ten Lives in a serious situation. We are extremely concerned and deeply saddened over the financial crisis now facing our organization.
Ten Lives Club hopes to overcome this set back. We must keep our shelter open for the benefit of all homeless cats. With so many generous supporters of Ten Lives Club, we
can continue our mission "to promote, further and enhance all cat
life". Please consider Ten Lives Club as your monthly charity of choice.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

LONG TIME SUPPORTER CROSSED RAINBOW BRIDGE
We were saddened to learn that a long time friend and supporter of Ten Lives Club, Dennis Bathurst, passed away last month and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Ten Lives Club sends his family and friends our deepest condolences. We know all of the kitties you were so kind to help over the years who have since crossed over the Rainbow Bridge were waiting to greet you with purrs and nose kisses. R.I.P. Mr. Dennis J. Bathurst. Your kindness and compassion will be greatly missed. Thank you for all that you did for the kitties in the care of Ten Lives Club.
