Attend one of our monthly orientations. Orientations typically take place once a month at our our adoption lounge which is located at 3202 Cherokee Street in St. Louis and is ADA compliant. Training usually lasts about an hour and provides an overview of Tenth Life's mission and history, current volunteer roles and opportunities, and allows time for us to get acquainted and answer your questions.
Those with social anxiety need not worry as there will be cats there to act as a buffer and we are gentle and patient as a matter of character. We look forward to meeting you! If there is some reason that you cannot attend an orientation, please let us know.
Whether you want to help out with kitty caretaking, writing, fundraising, event planning, or any one of dozens of other incredibly valuable ways to be of service, we want to start by getting to know you. That’s why we ask that all new volunteers begin their journey with Tenth Life by spending some time with us at our adoption center on Cherokee Street, working alongside other volunteers and Tenth Life leadership. Initially, we request a commitment of at least once per month, for a minimum of three shifts at our storefront, before being trained to volunteer in other exciting ways. Please don’t let this commitment scare you away, as we are incredibly flexible and have many volunteer positions that might be exactly what you’re looking for! We just don’t like to hand them out to strangers so let’s be friends! If there is some reason that you cannot volunteer at our adoption center, please let us know.
