Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass deactivated his social media accounts after getting online hate for missing a game-tying field goal, and now fans are raising money in his honor for a cat shelter.

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass has received death threats in the wake of his missed field goal in Sunday’s Bills-Kansas City Chiefs game.

Ten Lives Club, a no-kill cat rescue and shelter in Erie County, N.Y. has raised more than $100,000 in his honor.

The missed field goal had Bills fans flashing back to 1991, when an errant kick cost the club a Super Bowl title.

Buffalo Bills fans are determined to make it right, after kicker Tyler Bass missed a game-tying field goal and online bullying led him to deactivate his social media accounts.

Following Sunday’s game in which the NFL player missed a 44-yard field goal that would have brought the Bills even with the Kansas City Chiefs with less than 2 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Bass started getting hateful threats. And after the 27-24 loss was final, the 26-year-old turned off his X and Instagram accounts.

But Ten Lives Club, a no-kill cat rescue and shelter in Erie County, N.Y., is determined to support the athlete. In the last two days, the organization has raised more than $100,000 in Bass’s honor, they say.

“Everyone at our cat shelter has been a big fan of his, so to see the negativity and hate that was coming his way hurt our hearts,” Kimberly LaRussa, public relations manager of the shelter, tells PEOPLE. “We have a huge photo of Tyler and one of our kittens framed in our shelter lobby so everyone can see it as soon as they walk into the shelter. We just wanted everyone to know what a great guy he is.”

The “wide right” field goal had Bills fans flashing on another devastating moment in franchise history.

In 1991, Bills kicker Scott Norwood missed a 47-yarder with the same unfortunate trajectory — which cost the club a championship in Super Bowl XXV
