Cats Dumped In The Cold – Ten Lives Club Rescues!

Emery Park “Aristo” Cats

Around 2:30pm this past Thursday, January 30, a woman was in Emery Park walking her two dogs when she saw a dark colored SUV pull up close to the woods.  As she watched, the hatch opened and someone got back into the vehicle on the passenger side.  The SUV quickly drove away.  As she walked closer to where she had seen the vehicle pull over, she saw 6 cats sitting in the snow – scared, shaking with cold and confused.  One of the cats, a black kitty, was so frightened it quickly ran into the woods.

The woman called 911 who referred her to the SPCA.  The line was busy at the SPCA.  As she was desperately trying to get help for the cats, two people happened to drive by and began to help rescue the five kitties remaining.  They managed to get them loaded into their car and tried searching for the other cat who hid in the woods without success.  One of them knew a volunteer at Ten Lives Club and called our shelter explaining the urgent situation.

All five kitties were taken to our shelter in Hamburg, New York where they were thoroughly examined.  Thankfully, all of them were healthy and appeared to have been well fed and living recently in a home. The Ten Lives Club shelter vet will alter them, vaccinate, etc. to prepare them for adoption into loving forever homes.

Without the quick response and kindness of these people, five beautiful, healthy cats were saved from certain death.  The recent temperatures in our area have been in the single digits with wind chills of -25.  How long can a cat or dog – especially those who are used to living inside – survive in those conditions?  No shelter, no food or water, no way to keep from freezing to death.  A horrible and cruel way to die.

Unfortunately, the perpetrators of this unspeakable act of cruelty could not be identified.  The first witness was too far away to read the license plate number of the vehicle before it sped away.  At least she was able to get a description of the SUV and hopefully these criminals will be brought to justice.

In the meantime, the kitties – who were named after characters from the Disney movie “The Aristocats” – are in the loving care of Ten Lives Club. Their names are Duchess, Marie, Scat Cat, Tilou and Thomas O’Malley!

They will be available for adoption at our main shelter in Hamburg, New York by Friday, February 7.   They will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV & FeLuek, treated for fleas/worms and thoroughly examined by our shelter vet.  All adoptions also include a certificate for a free vet visit within 10 days of adoption from an extensive list of veterinarians in Buffalo and surrounding suburbs.

But to prepare the cats for adoption and care for them until they find their forever homes will be costly for Ten Lives Club – at least $1,000 or more.

Pull A Tab, Save A Cat!

Pull A Tab Save A Cat Ten Lives Club Program

Pull A Tab Save A Cat Ten Lives Club Program

Our “Pull A Tab, Save A Cat” is a wonderful program where Ten Lives Club turns in aluminum tabs for recycling.  We receive a donation in return!  The last load we recycled consisted of 468 pounds of aluminum tabs collected from the public!  This amounted to a $234  donation for Ten Lives Club!

KEEP SAVING THOSE TABS EVERYONE!  It really makes a difference and another way for us to raise much needed donations for the 500+ cats and kittens in our care.

In 2013, our “Pull A Tab Save A Cat” program raised $702.40 in donations!  A big Thank You to everyone doing their part for our environment by recycling and raising much needed donations for our shelter cats at the same time!  Your continued support has made this program a huge success for Ten Lives Club.

If you would like to donate and live in the vicinity of the Pet Supplies “Plus” store location in East Amherst, you can drop off donations in our cat room.  We have a large plastic container for collection right by the door!

For more information on how to donate or if you would like to display a professional looking “Pull a Tab” plastic container for your work or business, please call 716-646-5577 & mention the “Pull A Tab” program in your message.
