Blasdell, N.Y. (April 13, 2021) – Ten Lives Club announced a $35,000 grant investment from the newly named, Petco Love, to support their lifesaving work for animals in Western New York.
Petco Love is a nonprofit leading change for pets nationally by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since their founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they’ve empowered organizations with nearly $300 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And, they’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations, like ours, nationwide.
“Today Petco Love announces an investment in Ten Lives Club and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only one component. This month, we will also launch the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
“We can’t begin to share how excited we are here at Ten Lives Club for this amazing news. We rely heavily on donations to continue our mission to save cats and help them find loving homes and this lifesaving grant will be used to do just that. This year alone, we’ve rescued and re-homed 700 cats. We can’t thank our partners at Petco Love enough for their generosity,” said Marie Edwards, President & Founder of Ten Lives Club.
