Come visit us on Easter Sunday! We will be open from 12-6 pm.
Thursdays 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sundays 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Adoptions are completed in person after visiting the cats. You can complete the online application ahead of your visit to save time; however, please note that submitting an application for a particular cat does not "reserve" that cat.
We apologize that we cannot adopt cats to those who have not visited the adoption center to meet the cats in person.
Adoption Fees are $125 per cat under 10 years old and $50 for senior (10+ years old) and barn cats.
Adoption Fees include:
Spay / neuter surgery
FeLV / FIV test
Age-appropriate vaccines (FVRCP & Rabies)*
Senior cats & FIV positive cats may receive age-appropriate labwork & dental cleanings
* Additional vaccines required for kittens following adoption are the responsibility of the adopters
Nine Lives Foundation strives to make your adoption experience fun and enjoyable! Our population of adoptable cats is diverse and changes weekly, so you may need to return several times before selecting the perfect cat or kittens.
We love FIV+ cats! Click here to learn more about this misunderstood disease, and why you should consider adopting a cat with FIV!
We are looking for permanent homes for our healthy FeLV+ kittens and cats. Click here to learn more!
These kitties are happy to trade their mousing skills for shelter and regular meals. Ideal homes are farms, stables, rural homes with some land or even just a large garden. Ask about our Barn Cat Program today!
Adoption Policies and Requirements
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age with a valid ID/CDL.
Applicants under 18 must have application completed by parent or guardian living in residence where cat will reside.
If renting a home or apartment, we will require landlord telephone contact or lease agreement information.
For information about renting with pets, visit the Humane Society of the United States website: Information for Renters with Pets
If adopting to a household with children, we recommend that they be present when making the final selection.
We will always take back cats or kittens adopted from Nine Lives Foundation. If you should need to surrender your adopted cat or kittens back to us, we ask whenever possible that you notify us in advance by phone. If you have medical records, we would appreciate a copy to add to the cat's file for future adopters.
The cats available on this page are updated in real time. Cats in portals like Petfinder are updated overnight. We apologize for any inconvenience any delays in status updates may cause.
