Nine Lives Greece is a network of volunteers dedicated to the reduction of the stray cat overpopulation through trap-neuter-return programmes.


Each year we get hundreds of stray cats in Athens neutered/ spayed (1,700 cats in 2017 alone) and we help improve the quality of life of some 450 street cats through daily feeding programmes and veterinary care. We also try to find responsible homes for as many stray or abandoned cats and kittens as possible. View Cats & Kittens Available for Adoption.



Become a Friend of Nine Lives and we will spay a cat in your name!

At this very moment there are 300 cats waiting to be spayed/neutered so that they can go on to live longer, healthier lives. Visit our World Spay Day gallery to read their stories and become a Friend by sponsoring a cat today!

February 27th is World Spay Day – a campaign that spotlights the importance of spaying/neutering, a proven way to reduce stray cat populations and improve their everyday quality of life. Humane Society International has invited us and all animal welfare groups to participate and we need your help!

Friends of Nine Lives annual fee starts at €35 or just €3 /month – which is the cost to spay a single cat – and any amount you contribute will go directly into controlling the stray cat population of Greece.
