Support Cat Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a cat breeder or pet store to buy a cat when you can adopt?

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
9 Lives Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which depends solely upon unpaid volunteers to operate. As we don't have a shelter, we keep our cats in foster homes until they are adopted. Thus, the number of cats we can rescue depends directly on the number of foster homes we have - the more people willing to foster, the more animals we can rescue. We are also a "no-kill" organization and will euthanize an animal only if its health is so poor that trying to keep it alive would be cruel to the animal. It is our objective to make every effort to place all animals that come into our care into appropriate loving homes. Our volunteers love and get to know each animal which enables us to match prospective adopters with an animal that will fit in their home and become a beloved member of the family.
Come Meet our Pets:
We hold adoption fairs every Saturday. Our cats are at the PetsMart on Powers throughout the week and we bring additional cats and kittens for our adoption fair every Saturday from 11:00 to 3:00. We rotate cats through PetsMart during the week. If you see a cat that you may be interested in, please contact us to set up a meeting anytime during the week.
Our Adoption Process:
We have all prospective adopters fill out an application to see if their lives and needs match with one of our pets. If approved they are required to sign a contract with us. Each cat has been tested and either spayed or neutered, and have had their shots. Adoption fees vary depending on the cat, but include the FELV/FIV test, spay or neuter and one (adults) or two (kittens) distemper shots.
