I have been volunteering with Tenth Life Cat Rescue for over a year now. Not only have I had the honor of helping dozens of cats find lives they deserve, I have also acquired a beautiful group of friends who share the same passion. Sometimes you don't know what you were missing until that thing enters your life. Well, I had no idea I was missing Tenth Life and I am thrilled to be part of the team. I started volunteering to fulfill my desire to give back to the community and I have stayed because it fulfills so much more. I had no idea that my heart could contain so much love for so many cats and people. From helping with special events, to educating the public, to teaching children how to use "gentle hands" all the way to helping potential adopters find "the one," I fall further in love with Tenth Life.
Tenth Life nurtures a community of pet lovers and is there for the adopter AFTER the papers have been signed. They provide advice and support to ensure the cats are getting the best care possible and go the extra mile to produce happy cats and happy caretakers and happy homes!
Awesomeness. Awesome cats, people and location. Come and see!
Tenth Life is a wonderful organization, which I have volunteered with in the past. Though my work schedule doesn't allow me to be as hands on as I used to be I never hesitate to spread the word about the great work they are doing to help save animals in my community and throughout our region.
Incredible and loving volunteer organization that helps even the most difficult situations. Always working with other groups who may not have the skills or resources. Tenth Life is the best!!
Everyone is so friendly at Tenth life! I started just hanging out at the storefront 4 years ago. The excitement and sincerity of the volunteers is infectious that I started volunteering too! I’ve been with them for 3 years. There’s always ways to help and many thanks to go around.
A wonderful and caring rescue! Volunteering with these amazing and dedicated people has been one of the joys of my retirement. Being able to help the otherwise hopeless cats and providing them with safety and love, and occasionally miracles, is a feeling hard to describe.
I have worked with several rescues in the St Louis area and Tenth Life has always been amazing. Together with Tenth Life, my wife and I have fostered and rescued more than 100 cats and kittens, many with special needs requiring expensive veterinary care. Without the support of Tenth Life Cat Rescue, few of these deserving creatures would have had a chance.
I cannot think of a more deserving animal rescue.
Tenth Life Cat Rescue is doing amazing things for cats in the Saint Louis area. By focusing on stray cats and kittens with injuries, illnesses, and special needs, the rescue saves hundreds of lives every year. But Tenth Life offers so much more. From a community resource helpline, to behavioral counselors, to adoption consultants who work to match adopters with the best possible cat(s) for their situation, Tenth Life really does it all.
I am a volunteer, a foster fail, and of course an adopter. I am also a fan.
Tenth Life goes above and beyond for cats in the St. Louis area, particularly those with special needs. The staff and volunteers rally when there is a cat found in a dangerous situation and they work until that cat is rescued and safe. But they also save many, many perfectly healthy cats and find them homes with a very detailed vetting process. At this time, TL relies on a devoted network of foster homes and could always use more help. I have adopted two TL cats and my life would be sad without them!
I have been a Tenth Life for over 4 years now. I found out about the organization from my friend who shared Lincoln's story with me, what really resonated with me with this organization is that they prioritize the cats with special needs. I am honored to have helped get the Cat Comapnions program off the ground, to see the joy on the nursing home residents when they get to pet a cat again is the best feeling in the world. The longer I stay the more involved I have become, not only do I volunteer at events, Cat Companions, I am also the Hissin Hustle race director, dining out night planner and most recently foster a parent. Not only do I love helping the cats I have made a lot of new human friends too.
I had known of Tenth Life but had never been directly involved. My Girl Scout Troop was in the middle of earning their Bronze Award when we visited and the girls fell in love. The volunteers were patient, kind, informative, and fun. I had the opportunity to find out even more about the organization at the trivia night event. Since then my Troop finished earning their Bronze Award by gathering donations to create adoption bags, and my daughter and I have signed up to begin volunteering.
I started as a volunteer about 2 years ago and I have been involved since. I even became a "foster" parent however, I am a foster fail. My little girl has so many health issues and has been through a lot but Tenth Life has been great at working in finding her relief from her health issues. But that is who they are and they really live up to the name of Tenth Life the cats that come into there care get the best vet care out there and they do not stop until every cat gets the chance. They really do put the cats first.
I signed up to volunteer for this agency bc I Love cats and I found a group of people who are kind and loving to cats and people! I so enjoy volunteering in several different ways and attending their Cats and Mats event where you get to do Yoga wiry the kitties. I’m so happy to be able ti spend time with these fantastic people who have a wonderful mission
I came to Tenth Life with a cat that was found abandoned and starving. I decided to foster knowing that all the shelters were so full and they might not be able to take her in. Originally I was only going to foster that one cat(Francis) and I was very up front about that and they accepted that and allowed me in anyways. In the past two years I have no regrets deciding to continue fostering with Tenth Life. I love Tenth Life adoption policies, team members, and cats.
I have volunteered with Tenth Life for about a year. This organization has a lot of love and show so much passion for needy/special cats.
When I started volunteering here a couple of years ago, I thought I would just be visiting the storefront on Cherokee maybe once a month, helping with odd projects or filling in when it was short staffed. I never expected to get so involved, but I'm so glad I did! Everyone who volunteers here is so warm and welcoming, it's like having an extended family-- one who loves cats as much as I do, which is a huge bonus since my actual family are more dog people. And it's not just the people who keep me coming back: naturally the cats are the stars of the show. Having the opportunity to love and care for these amazing creatures is just unbelievably rewarding, especially since so many of them would be homeless (or worse) without Tenth Life. It really is a win/win for everyone--where else can you give back to the community and get warm kitty snuggles at the same time? Best place ever!
I've been aware of Tenth Life for a few years now, and just started to volunteer with them this summer 2017. I am blown away by the dedication of the staff & fellow volunteers in this organization. They are kind, communicative, organized, and endlessly devoted to the well-being of the cats, especially those with special needs, in the St. Louis community. And, there are so many ways to volunteer and get involved - it's been easy to find opportunities that work for my personality and interests. I would recommend this organization to anyone who is looking to get involved in animal welfare in St. Louis, or who is looking to adopt a cat. Thank you for all you do, Tenth Life!
I adore this place! I have two cats from here. I love that I can go to the storefront and hangout with their cats. No cages. Loving people who make you feel at home. Just the best place for cats!
Tenth Life Cat Rescue is a great cat rescue as it gives those cats and kittens that really need it, a tenth life. It takes a lot of dedication from its fosters and volunteers to give those special cats the care they need, whether it be something short term, such a as a URI or a broken bone, to long term such as heart murmurs and paralyzation. No cat is ever 'put down' due to cost of care.
I have been volunteering for Tenth Life for over four years. We have a wonderful network of foster parents who love and care for our foster cats and kittens, and many wonderful volunteers helping us spread the word about our mission of giving cats the lives they deserve. It's so rewarding to see a shy or scared kitty blossom and become a trusting, loving cat and then find their adoptive home.
