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. Only when a trusted veterinarian determines that a cat is in a state of incurable suffering, Tenth does Tenth Life relieve them of their pain through gentle and humane euthanasia. This difficult and thoughtful decision is never made in response to a lack of space, negative behaviors, or because a cat's medical needs are challenging or expensive.
