TENTH LIFE COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER & ADOPTION LOUNGE

Sure, our adoption lounge is a fun and comfy place to kick back and hang out with cats while enjoying some coffee and free wifi. But did you know that we are also a valuable community resource center? 

We believe we can save more pets and decrease pet homelessness by equipping our community to be a part of the solution through empathic individual and group education. That's why our doors are open to the public weekly. You do not have to be looking to adopt a pet in order to visit our adoption lounge and resource center and there is no charge to visit and no time limit other than our open hours.

We exist to help pets and work hard to keep people and pets together. 
We're here to connect you with the resources you need. Have questions? Need advice? Stop in and speak with a volunteer or staff member. 

We believe judgment is separation and we know that we can accomplish more together if we're kind and respectful of one another. When you enter our space, you are entering a judgment free zone. Please come as you are and ask any questions. All are welcome here. 



WHAT ARE WE DOING?

We take pride in the fact that we have helped 450+ individuals and families restore peace to their homes through our free behavior team, serving our community locally and as far away as France, Norway, South Africa, Abu Dhabi, and Saudi Arabia. Wherever you are, our volunteers want to help.

In 2018 we served 122 individuals via our free behavior line and fielded 966 community phone calls. We're committed to educational outreach both in our home base and by visiting schools and other organizations to provide humane education where it is needed. We do all of this while being a mostly volunteer-operated rescue that is continually providing excellent veterinary care, foster homes, and adoptive placement to stray cats and kittens, prioritizing those with special needs and injuries. In 2018, thanks to our generous supporters, we rescued 163 cats and are on track to help 40% more this year with the addition of a brand new isolation space for increased intake.


Since 2016 we've fielded more than 4,000 requests for help through our community resource line alone. We also welcome approximately 2,000 visitors annually at our brick and mortar location on Cherokee Street in Saint Louis, Missouri which has been open to the public since 2013.
