When you donate to Ten Lives, you support a dynamic program that helps cats from Woonsocket to Westerly. The cats in our program come from various backgrounds, but have one thing in common; they need our help. Since May 2018, Ten Lives has provided life-changing services to over 1,700 unowned and owned cats and facilitated over 1,200 adoptions.
We are proud to say that the cats we help receive the highest level of care, including spay & neuter, vaccinations, flea & parasite treatment, microchipping, and when needed, blood work, dentals, speciality and urgent care. On average, Ten Lives spends $245 to prepare a healthy cat for adoption. Unfortunately, many of the cats who enter our program require additional services well above routine vet care.
Your support enables us to help cats in our community and to provide the high-quality care they deserve. As an organization that does not receive state, city, or municipal funding, we rely on the generosity of folks like you to help cats like Squiggy (pictured). In 2021, 340 cats entered our Foster Program and 102 cats received help through our Community Cats program. Your donation can help change the landscape for cats in Rhode Island.
