Ten Lives Club recently hosted a “Sweetest Valentine’s Pet Photo Contest.” It said community support was overwhelming, helping to raise close to $7,000 for the nonprofit cat rescue.
The online photo contest was made possible through the generosity of Just Pizza in Amherst, Salvatore’s Hospitality and Empower Boutique, which donated grand prizes. Purina also gifted dog treats to those who entered their dogs in the contest and received votes.
Skyler the pup won the first grand prize with 710 votes; Bruce and Brody the cats won the second grand prize with 685 votes; Mello won first prize for dogs with 581 votes; Zeus won second prize for dogs with 376; Binx won first prize for cats with 520 votes; and Pipsqueak won second prize for cats with 470 votes. Each vote was worth $1 raised for the cat rescue.
Ten Lives Club thanked each and every pet owner and animal who participated.
It is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary of helping more than 35,000 cats in need. Visit www.tenlivesclub.com/donate to make a donation.
