SUBMITTING YOUR TENTH LIFE ADMISSION REQUEST
As a reminder, we prioritize strays in our service area as well as cats with special needs and injuries as well as those in high-risk situations and shelters. If you're seeking placement for a stray cat, especially one with special needs or injuries, including very young or very old cats in need of extraordinary care, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. We will triage and consider and all stray and transfer requests.
Transferring from a licensed shelter or rescue?
If you are with a licensed rescue or shelter, you can fill out this form if you like or you can visit this page for more information about how to reach out more quickly.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT HAVE A VETERINARIAN ON STAFF.
We also don't have a traditional shelter. Space is very limited and new admissions usually require an available Tenth Life foster parent to sign on. For this reason, we cannot take emergency cases at our door nor can we take them without proper placement secured in advance. With injured animals we will do all we can to move mountains for them. We will do what we can to help in all cases.
