About Us

Adopting A Friend

The Nine Lives Foundation strives to make your adoption experience fun and enjoyable! The adoption center is open 7 days a week beginning at noon. Our population of adoptable cats is both large and diverse so you may need to return several times before selecting the perfect cat or kittens!

Young kittens (under 3 or 4 moths of age) are often housed in foster homes to protect their delicate immune systems. We recommend that you visit the shelter first to see the kittens that are available. We will put you in touch with the foster coordinator to show you kittens in foster care that may also be available but too small to be shown in the shelter.

Kittens under 5 months of age must go in pairs!

Exceptions are made if you currently have a kitten of similar age in your home & you can bring it in to match with a compatible partner!

Adoption Fees include:

Spay/neuter surgery, FeLV/FIV testing, Home Again microchip, deworming, age appropriate vaccines (FVRCP & Rabies), vet exam, nail trim and complimentary dose of Advantage Multi/Advantage II. Senior cats may receive age appropriate labwork & dental cleanings.

Who We Are

The Nine Lives Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit community-based organization dedicated to rescuing cats and kittens from high-kill shelters and at-risk situations throughout Northern California and placing them in permanent, loving homes.  In addition to saving cats from senseless euthanasia, Nine Lives Foundation focuses on providing low cost spay/neuter surgeries for the community and other cat rescue organizations.  We also support TNR (trap-neuter-return) of ferals and strays to reduce the number of unwanted cats and kittens born in our neighboring communities and consequently entering the Bay Area's overcrowded shelters.
