Hey cat lovers (and isn't that everyone?), during this unusual time some of our partner shelters may have services disrupted. Please call ahead if you're planning a visit, and follow us on social media for updates.
This is the percentage of cats that enter Cincinnati shelters and are NOT euthanized.
What is the Ten Movement?
The Ten Movement was founded in 2013 to create a 100 percent no-kill nation for cats. Most people have heard that cats have nine lives. Together, we can give them one more.
Ten is a nonprofit movement funded by The Joanie Bernard Foundation. It includes our partners: United Coalition for Animals Nonprofit Spay and Neuter Clinic (UCAN), Ohio Alleycat Resource (OAR), The League for Animal Welfare, Pets in Need, The Scratching Post, The Foundation Against Companion-Animal Euthanasia (FACE) and Shelter Outreach Services of Ohio.
In 2012, the live-release rate (LRR) of shelter cats in Cincinnati was an unsettling 37 percent. That means only one out of three cats that entered a shelter would survive to adoption. Thanks to our partners and friends, we’ve seen the live-release rate grow and grow.
