Ways to help


We always need more volunteers at The Tenth Life. Even though we have a dedicated group of volunteers who do most of the everyday care for the cats, there is always a need for more. The volunteers sweep floors, scoop litter boxes, give food and water, clean walls and furniture, and give lots of attention and love to the cats. We have divided the facility into segments which require no more than a couple of hours of your time once a week to ensure that the cats have the best living arrangements we can provide.
  • Occasional, Weekly, Monthly
  • Teens, 21+, 55+, Adults
  • Individuals
  • Physical, Indoor
  • On-site
  • Weekdays, Evenings, Weekends

How you help It takes approximately seven people each day to keep the cats’ living areas clean and give them the love that they deserve. Please consider volunteering; you would love the interaction with the cats and other cat lovers. It is truly a rewarding experience!
About us Today the facility houses over five hundred cats in four buildings. There are also three dogs in residence. Jerry and Marsha have established a trust that will allow the continuation of The Tenth Life even after they are gone. In twenty-six years, The Tenth Life has grown from a two-person operation to an organization with over sixty volunteers to provide all care (except medical) for the over 450 cats and three dogs, a full-time veterinarian, a fully equipped health care facility, and four buildings to house cats in a home environment until they are adopted. Thousands of cats have found loving homes as a result of coming to The Tenth Life for shelter, love, medical attention, and a tenth life.
