Last year Just Pizza in Amherst owner Mary Alloy partnered with a local shelter to put adoptable dogs on her pizza boxes. Her Pizza + Pups campaign was an international sensation and a huge reason why so many dogs were adopted in a short period of time. Now Mary has decided…it’s time to help the cats!

Just Pizza is now partnering with Ten Lives Club to feature adoptable cats on all of their pizza boxes and offering adopters a $50 gift certificate to enjoy a nice dinner to celebrate their new best friend!


“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 Alloy.

Ten Lives Club says they are incredibly grateful for the opportunity and they look forward to working with Mary and her kindhearted and selfless family.


“Mary has been battling a rare cancer for months and going through chemotherapy at Roswell. 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,” said Ten Lives Club Public Relations Manager Kimberly LaRussa.

In addition to putting adoptable cats on pizza boxes, Just Pizza will be collecting donations for Ten Lives Club in honor of the rescue’s 20th anniversary. Learn more about the effort here, and grab a pizza here!
