Ten Lives Cat Rescue

Meet Our Life-Saving Team

Ten Lives is a volunteer run organization. We have no paid staff or employees and rely on the generosity of our community to complete our life-saving work. Having a volunteer based program allows us to direct 100% of funds raised to cats and kittens in need!

Melissa is the co-founder and Executive Director of Ten Lives. She has been volunteering in the “rescue world” for over 5 years. She and her partner are happily owned by 4 rescue cats! Melissa was inspired to start Ten Lives Cat Rescue after fostering a cat named Slugger, a former junk yard cat, for a year. His remarkable transformation taught them so much about patience, the capacity of the human heart, and dedication. Cats like Slugger need second chances and Ten Lives is dedicated to providing just that.

  • Favorite Part about Volunteering with TLCR: It’s a tie! I love continuing to be constantly blown away by how amazing and dedicated our volunteers are (their pure acts of selflessness inspire me!)…but it’s also equally rewarding connecting with adopters and hearing (and seeing) our cats absolutely thriving in their furever homes! =^..^=
