About Ten Lives Cat Rescue


Foster Based, Pawtucket, RI 02860, US

Mission Statement

Ten Lives Cat Rescue is committed to saving homeless, abused, and abandoned cats by providing veterinary care, rehabilitation services, and then placing them into loving adoptive homes. We are dedicated to giving a second chance to those who have been forgotten: seniors, the physically and emotionally scarred, the behaviorally challenged, and those who need critical medical care. Along with our immediate mission to rescue cats, Ten Lives is dedicated to educating communities about cat overpopulation and inspiring change.


Ten Lives is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit rescue that is 100% volunteer-powered. We do not have any paid staff or employees and rely on the generosity of our community to complete our life-saving mission. We are a foster-based organization and all of our adoptable cats reside in foster homes until adopted. Our program does not receive state, city, or municipal funding. All of our critical life-saving funds come from generous donors who believe in our mission statement!

Ten Lives was founded in February 2018 in an effort to reduce the homeless cat population in Rhode Island and inspire change in our community. In May 2018 we accepted the first cat into our program and since then we have provided services for over 1000 cats. At Ten Lives, we're dedicated to giving a second chance to those who have been neglected and forgotten, including cats in need of socialization and critical medical care. In response to the overwhelming need for help with both populations, we created The Forgotten Feline Program and The Lazzy Fund.

In 2020, Ten Lives launched a low cost spay and neuter voucher program in an effort to reduce the cat population in Rhode Island and inspire owners to spay or neuter their cat. To date, we have distributed nearly 300 vouchers to community members!
