Mission Statement

We are a community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the welfare of all cats and kittens by providing low cost spay/neuter, rescue, medical, and adoption services. A no-kill facility that welcomes all cats and kittens regardless of their physical, medical or behavioral conditions, and places our animals in humane, responsible and loving homes.


We follow the following criteria in order to meet this classification:

Nine Lives never uses euthanasia on a cat or kitten, except for a humane reason such as pain and suffering or when a cat has severe medical problems with a poor prognosis. We will do everything possible to treat a cat regardless of expense.

Nine Lives will never transfer a cat to another shelter or facility that uses euthanasia on animals for any other reason than those mentioned above.

Nine Lives does not euthanize cats deemed anti-social or that have severe behavioral problems. It is our experience that cats labeled as anti-social or having a temperamental defect which we have rescued from other shelters exhibited no problems in our care. Many of these otherwise unadopt-able cats have found new loving homes through the Nine Lives Foundation.

NLF is a great place where every person makes a huge difference. Together we are mighty. The people really care about the cats. They survive because of the volunteers. You can help once a week or once a month. You can also bake for events and help coordinate the events.
