What is the Ten Movement?
The Ten Movement is a nonprofit movement funded by The Joanie Bernard Foundation that exists to create a 100 percent no-kill nation for cats. People say that cats have nine lives; together, we can give them one more.
Our Partners include:
Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, Humane Society of Greater Dayton, Ohio Alleycat Resource (OAR), SPCA Cincinnati, United Coalition for Animals Nonprofit Spay and Neuter Clinic (UCAN), The League for Animal Welfare (LFAW), Save the Animals Foundation (STAF) and The Scratching Post.
Who is Scooter the Neutered Cat?
Scooter is the official mascot of the Ten Movement. Following a meteoric rise to fame in 2013, Scooter has remained an essential and memorable part of our efforts.

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. Since then, our community live-release rate has improved and is now above 90%.
