What we aim to solve New!

We believe that every cat, regardless of emotional or physical limitations, deserves the chance at a fulfilling and happy life. It is our goal to ensure that they get the lives they deserve regardless of special needs and injuries which may be too challenging or expensive for other rescues to take on.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We work to end unnecessary euthanasia and cat homelessness. Tenth Life feels strongly that all pets should be spayed and neutered. An unbelievable number of companion animals are euthanized each day because there are not enough homes for them.

Tenth Life provides veterinary care, foster homes, and adoptive placement to stray cats and kittens, prioritizing those with special needs. We also do our work through educational outreach, community programs, and collaborative partnerships while providing free education and a safe space for our community to come together and learn.

With more than 150 dedicated volunteers and a large number of devoted donors, Tenth life is capable of reaching our goals. Having established our vision, mission, and by setting specific goals, we're able to measure our impact more and more each year and make changes to our tactics as needed.

We're relying on data to tell us how we are progressing. We believe we'll have been successful when we are no longer needed to rescue cats, standing only as an educational institution to maintain our successes.

This past year, we served over 2,000 individuals and have saved over 200 cats through foster placement. As we expand, we will build capacity to save more annually. We have saved over 1,500 so far.
