Tenth Life's Mission:
Giving cats the lives they deserve.
At Tenth Life, we believe that every cat, regardless of emotional or physical limitations, deserves the chance at a fulfilling and happy life.
We provide 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.
Our policy on euthanasia is simple.
Only when our trusted veterinarians have determined that a cat is in a state of incurable suffering, does Tenth Life relieve them of that suffering through gentle and humane euthanasia. This difficult and thoughtful decision is never made in response to a lack of space or because a cat's medical or behavioral needs are challenging or costly. For exceptionally challenging behavioral issues, we take our time and contract with an industry professional.
