Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Giving cats the lives they deserve. Tenth Life provides veterinary care, foster homes, and adoptive placement to stray cats and kittens, prioritizing those with special needs. We work to end unnecessary euthanasia and cat homelessness through educational outreach, community programs, and collaborative partnerships. We believe that every cat, regardless of emotional or physical limitations, deserves the chance at a fulfilling and happy life. If a veterinarian determines that a cat is in a state of incurable suffering, Tenth Life relieves them of their pain through gentle and humane euthanasia. This decision is never made because of a lack of space, preventing negative behaviors, or because a cat's medical needs are difficult or expensive. 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. The only way to make a difference in this tragedy is education. To learn more about the importance of spaying and neutering, please read our reasons for promoting it on our website.

Target demographics: Stray cats in St. Louis and beyond and our beloved community.

Geographic areas served: St. Louis, Missouri

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.
