​About Nine Lives Foundation 


Our Mission 

We are a community-based non-profit 501c3 organization that rescues cats and kittens from high-kill shelters and at-risk homeless situations, providing them with a no-kill shelter and on-site medical care, and seeking their permanent loving homes. Learn more.

Nine Lives Foundation is proud to be a true no-kill shelter.  Find out what that means!

EIN # : 20-2150714

Total Adoptions in 2020: 1,318 (39% increase from 2019)



We are a community-ran organization and do not receive funding from any local, state, or government agencies. We rely solely on private donations of cash and goods via online and in-person fundraisers.


Our adoption fees and money generated from our low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics help cover some of the costs, but it's our community that makes all the work we do possible. Learn more about how you can help our kitties!
