ONCE AGAIN TLC STEPS UP TO SAVE CATS IN NEED...

Marie Edwards, President & Founder of Ten Lives Club during interview with TWC News

On Monday, November 30, 55 cats were seized from a West Seneca "rescue" called "Bob the Cat Animal Rescue". Ten Lives Club took in 26 cats one to two weeks prior to this raid by the SPCA, American Humane Association & Niagara County Health Department.

Of the 55 cats rescued, ten were so sick they had to be euthanized (NOT by Ten Lives Club). Dozens more have respiratory infections, ringworm, Feline Leukemia, and FIV.

Ten Lives Club told Time Warner Cable News that Canorrao (the owner of Bob The Cat Rescue) brought in 26 cats in the week and a half before Monday's raid.  PLUS, another 10 in the past six months prior to the raid on Monday.  That means, in TOTAL, Ten Lives Club took in at least 36 CATS from Canorrao's hording situation.


Marie Edwards, 10 Lives Club Founder and President, told Time Warner Cable News "We try to take in 20 to 25 in a week. Fifteen in one day is a lot to process. It's a lot of manpower. A lot of cages to set up." 

TLC Shelter Vet, Dr. Sharon Fisk
Small rescue groups like Ten Lives Club do so much more than many people realize when these unfortunate situations happen. Although the spotlight is always on the big rescue organizations (SPCA) that have so many more resources & money. TLC ALWAYS steps in to help however we can. TLC Shelter Vet, Dr. Sharon Fisk shown left.

NOW Ten Lives has 26 MORE to care for, provide medical attention & place in forever homes.

Please consider making a donation towards the care & medical expenses for these poor babies.

They didn't ask to be in this situation!

It costs Ten Lives Club a lot of money to rescue, treat, feed and house over 250 cats and kittens PLUS more kitties that come to TLC in situations such as this.

SPONSOR A CAT CONDO AT TEN LIVES CLUB GALLERIA!



Looking for a unique gift to give someone special this holiday season? Sponsor one of our 13 state of the art kitty condos at the new Ten Lives Galleria Mall! What a special holiday gift to give or to honor a family member, friend or beloved pet that has crossed the Rainbow Bridge!

Businesses can also sponsor cat condos for additional exposure inside the TLC Galleria location. Sponsor a display window as well as a cat condo and increase your exposure to visitors!

Ask your workplace if they would be interested in sponsoring a cat condo! Ask friends, family or co-workers to sponsor one (or more) together!

Sponsorship signs will be professionally made by Evenhouse Printing LLC. Signs measure 5" x 7". You choose what you would like your sponsorship sign to say as long as it will fit within the parameters of the signage. Condo Sponsor signs will be displayed for 2 months at a time.

They will be prominently displayed inside one of our 13 cat condos and visible to every visitor to our store. (See examples of cat condo sponsorship signs above and below).

Cat Condo Sponsorships also make great gifts for birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Anniversaries or other special occasions. You choose which months you would like to sponsor one or more of our kitty condos! 

Each condo sponsorship will be for 2 months.  $150 will include a condo sponsorship for 2 months of your choice - back to back, i.e. - March & April, or for 2 specific months (special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or holidays). 

Ten Lives Club will send a personalized card to the sponsorship honoree to let them know of your donation in their name or family's name.
 

Please help us help more kitties by becoming a sponsor for the Ten Lives Club Galleria adoption location! Think of the difference we can make for so many more homeless cats and kittens with your kind support.

SPONSOR A SHOWCASE WINDOW AT TEN LIVES GALLERIA!


Monthly sponsorships are available for Ten Lives Club showcase windows in our newest cat adoption location at the Galleria Mall.  Your meaningful, tax-deductible sponsorship will help underwrite the cost of care for  the cats or kittens that live in one of our showcase windows until they find their forever homes. 

Sponsorship signs will be professionally made by Evenhouse Printing LLC.  Signs measure 30" x 30" with your company logo or current promotion.  You choose what you would like your sponsorship sign to promote about your business as long as it will fit within the parameters of the signage. They will be prominently displayed inside one of the front showcase windows and visible to every passerby and visitor to our store.  (See the example above of a showcase sponsorship sign).


Here's the best part - Over 23 MILLION people pass through the doors of the Galleria Mall every year!  Ten Lives Club at the Galleria is located just inside the main entrance next to Lord & Taylors.  This location is in a very high traffic area of the Galleria Mall since this entrance also has a bus stop right outside.  Sponsors will have the opportunity to advertise their business  to approximately 2 MILLION shoppers EVERY MONTH!

As a showcase window sponsor, Ten Lives Club will include any flyers, brochures, coupons, business cards or other promotional materials in each of our new adoption kits.  We will also display them inside our store.  

Ten Lives Club will also promote your sponsorship in our weekly e-mail newsletter that is distributed to approximately 2,000 supporters until January 2016 and across all of our social media platforms - Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Ten Lives Club blog.  As a sponsor, your business will get additional exposure to approximately 30,000 Ten Lives Club supporters PLUS MILLIONS of Galleria Mall shoppers. 

Since Ten Lives Club at the Galleria opened on October 6, this location has had over ONE HUNDRED ADOPTIONS and that number is growing every day!  But we need your support in order to keep the Walden Galleria adoption location open!  Our temporary lease expires at the end of December.  The Galleria will be asking Ten Lives Club to renew our lease for an entire year.  The only way Ten Lives can afford to remain at the Galleria location will be from monthly sponsorships of our showcase windows and cat condos.   

The Ten Lives Club Galleria location has allowed us to find so many more forever homes for our kitties than ever before. We want to continue to grow and take into our care so many more homeless cats and kittens. The Galleria Mall adoption location is making this happen for us!  On a weekly basis, TLC at the Galleria is averaging over 22 adoptions EVERY WEEK.  If Ten Lives can keep this adoption location open for another year, it would enable us to find forever homes for OVER 1,000 homeless cats and kittens!

Please help us help more kitties by becoming a sponsor for the Ten Lives Club Galleria adoption location!  Think of the difference we can make for so many more homeless cats and kittens with your support. 


The cost to sponsor a showcase window at Ten Lives Club Galleria Mall is only $1,000 per month.  Hurry to become a sponsor for the holidays - we only have two showcase windows available!  If December is already booked, consider reserving a sponsorship for specific months that are most important such as Jewelry for Valentine's Day, Catering for Super Bowl Sunday, Flowers for Mother's Day, etc.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to not only show community commitment, but also get phenomenal exposure for your company at the same time!

        NEW TEN LIVES CLUB ADOPTION LOCATION AT GALLERIA MALL!


        The new Ten Lives Club Walden Galleria adoption location was previously occupied by the SPCA.  It is located just inside the main entrance next to Lord & Taylors on the ground level in the Walden Galleria Mall in Cheektowaga, New York.   

        Ten Lives recently celebrated our Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Galleria on Saturday, October 24.  Hundreds of visitors, along with dozens of TLC volunteers came out for our event!

        The very same day, we received a very generous donation from Joe Kozoil of CatLadder.com.  Joe brought us 3 beautiful handmade cat ladders for our kitties in the showcase windows Saturday morning and they LOVE them!

        CatLadder.com makes unique cat furniture pieces made to order.  Each cat ladder is individually hand crafted!  You pick the color of the stain, carpeting for the steps and how many steps/height of the cat ladder you would like for your cat(s).  Be sure to check them out at catladder.com and order one for your kitty!  THANK YOU JOE & CATLADDER.COM!
         

         TLC volunteers baked DOZENS of kitty cupcakes that were handed out to all of the visitors who stopped in to visit the kitties on Saturday.   

        THANK YOU to all of the dedicated TLC volunteers who took the time to bake & decorate these yummy cupcakes!

        We held a Theme Basket raffle and the "Whisker Wheel" was on hand for visitors to take a spin to win prizes! 
         

        Brenda Bushley, long time dedicated TLC Volunteer, had her handmade jewelry for sale with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Ten Lives Club - THANK YOU BRENDA! 

        TLC at Galleria had ELEVEN adoptions in just ONE DAY during the Grand Opening Day!
          


        Since TLC took over the SPCA store location on October 6, we've had 62 adoptions in just 28 DAYS at this location.  That is phenomenal!

        TLC is expecting well over 200 cats & kittens to find their forever homes by January 1, 2016 from the new Galleria location alone!

        CONGRATULATIONS to Kristen Peck, Ten Lives Club Galleria Store Manager, for doing such an AWESOME job!  YOU & YOUR VOLUNTEERS ROCK!  
        Be sure to stop by and visit Ten Lives Club at the Galleria Mall to find your next furry family member.   

        TLC at Galleria is also looking for volunteers.  With the upcoming Holidays, they are extending their hours through the week until 8pm.  This TLC location will also be open on Sundays from 11am to 6pm.

        Pictured right is Madison, our first volunteer to earn her t-shirt, with Little Man, our FIV+ cat that was recently adopted from the Galleria location.  Congratulations Madison!

        TEN LIVES CLUB FEATURED ON WKBW AM BUFFALO!

        http://www.wkbw.com/am-buffalo/ten-lives-club

        Channel 7 WKBW is celebrating November as Rescue a Shelter Animal month.  Linda Pellegrino from WKBW AM Buffalo invited Ten Lives Club to appear on her show Monday, November 2.  We were happy to have the opportunity!

        Marie Edwards, President & Founder of Ten Lives Club, and Valerie Underwood, Volunteer Store Coordinator, were interviewed along with 2 cats - "Super" Manny & Calypso.  Valerie was going to hold Calypso but he was being camera shy!  "Super" Manny hammed it up & was a cool cucumber during the entire interview.

        This was a wonderful opportunity for Ten Lives Club to spread the word about our organization!  Linda invited us to come back again in December to promote our "Home for the Holidays" adoption campaign on her AM Buffalo show.  We are looking forward to another opportunity to help our kitties forever homes!
