A Truly No-Kill Shelter
We follow the following criteria in order to meet this classification:
Nine Lives never uses euthanasia on a cat or kitten, except for a humane reason such as pain and suffering or when a cat has severe medical problems with a poor prognosis. We will do everything possible to treat a cat regardless of expense.
Nine Lives will never transfer a cat to another shelter or facility that uses euthanasia on animals for any other reason than those mentioned above.
Nine Lives does not euthanize cats deemed anti-social or that have severe behavioral problems. It is our experience that cats labeled as anti-social or having a temperamental defect which we have rescued from other shelters exhibited no problems in our care. Many of these otherwise unadopt-able cats have found new loving homes through the Nine Lives Foundation.
