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 (1,577 cats in 2016 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!

As a Friend of Nine Lives, your donation will directly support our Trap-Neuter-Return programme, which is vital for the permanent reduction of the stray cat population and the improvement of everyday quality of life of adult cats.

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 Athens.

We offer rewards for each level of ‘Friendship’ as listed below. Just choose the level you’d like from the drop down box under ‘Monthly Giving Options’ or click the Donate button to submit a one time donation.
