Sponsor a stray cat spay today

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 (1,600 cats in 2018 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.

Planing your next holiday in Greece? Join our Athens Cat Feeding Tour! The approximately one-hour tour takes place in the historic centre of Athens, where we feed over 150 spayed/neutered colony cats every day. Get to know the cats and their stories, enjoy a stroll through the picturesque heart of the city, and have the chance to purchase our exclusive Nine Lives merchandise, knowing that every cent you spend directly benefits these very cats through vet care and food.

February 26th 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.


At this very moment there are 280 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!
