Last February, Just Pizza in Amherst helped the Niagara County SPCA get dogs adopted by putting them on their pizza boxes. Just Pizza hoped the idea would inspire customers to adopt a pet or share the photo from the box with their friends...and it worked.

This year, they have changed their focus to the cats of Ten Lives Club.

According to NEWS 4 (WIVB-TV), similar to last year's effort adoptable cats, this time will be featured on boxes from the Just Pizza location at 2319 Niagara Falls Blvd. The pizzeria has spiced up the offer, if you will excuse the pun,  by offering adopters a $50 gift certificate.

“I’ve always helped Ten Lives Club by donating pizza to their events so when I was looking for a way to help another organization in a positive way, the work they do for cats seemed like the ‘purrfect’ fit! I have several cats at home myself and they make the best companions,” said Amherst Just Pizza owner Mary Alloy.

Alloy, who has been battling cancer for months and undergoing chemotherapy at Roswell Park, hasn't let it deter her mission to the Ten Lives Club Public Relations Manager.

“The fact that she is still always looking for ways to give back while fighting this terrible disease is simply amazing…but that’s just what Mary is. Amazing,”  Kimberly LaRussa said.

Just Pizza will also be collecting donations for Ten Lives Club to celebrate the group’s 20th anniversary.
