Let's save cats' lives... together! Nine Lives Foundation is a community-based non-profit, no-kill shelter devoted exclusively to helping cats and kittens in the Bay Area. We strive to rescue the “unadoptable”—the sick, the injured, the imperfect, those with FIV and FeLV, the old, the young and the abandoned. This year alone, we’ve adopted out almost 1,300 cats and kittens—over 300 more than last year. With you on our team, we’ve shown that each and every one is adoptable in their own way!

But... we can't do it alone! With the approaching year-end retirement of our founder, Dr. Monica Rudiger, we need your help more than ever to keep the mission of Nine Lives going strong. We’re building a new team of veterinarians to meet our mission of providing low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination services, as well as medical and surgical care for cats at our Adoption Center and in our foster program. And we remain in the business of finding them their forever homes!

You make what WE do possible! Every dollar donated, every hour volunteered, every cat or kitten fostered, every case of canned food, flat of baby food, bag of cat food or litter donated helps us save another life that would have otherwise been lost. We’re asking you to open your hearts to the cats and kittens who rely on Nine Lives—we can’t do it without you! Make a tax-deductible donation today.
