Welcome to 9 Lives Lanzarote

Lanzarote is one of the most popular European sunshine and beach holiday destinations. But for animal lovers, and specifically cat lovers, visiting this beautiful island, a holiday can be tainted very quickly by seeing the abuse and neglect that is suffered by many of the feral cats that live here…

9 Lives Lanzarote are a registered charity to help these cats. We aim to raise the living standards of the cat colonies living on tourist complexes, and via our spay/neuter programme cut down the number of unwanted kittens born every year – kittens that would either be dumped in a plastic bag, poisoned, drowned or otherwise cruelly killed by the staff of some holiday complexes.

Based on the same principles that the Twinkle Trust on the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura employs, our main goals are as follows:

  • Spaying & Neutering: working with a team of qualified vets and nurses to trap, neuter/spay, health check and, if necessary, treat cats, before releasing them back into their previous surroundings, and afterwards following up on them and looking after their welfare.
  • Communal Feeding Stations: setting up “Cat Cafés” on tourist complexes, i.e. communal feeding grounds for all cats that live there, including putting up signs to inform holiday makers not to feed the cats anywhere else on the complex.
  • Education: visiting holiday complexes that house feral cat colonies, and educating owners and staff about spaying and neutering.

If you want to get involved helping 9 Lives Lanzarote in any way, go and check out our “How you can help” page – we are looking for anything from clothes and bric-á-brac for jumble sales to raise funds, to veterinary assistance or services donations such as poster printing, for example.

Since we are privately funded and receive no grants or monies from the Spanish government or any other official body, we rely heavily on donations from individuals or businesses, that help us to continue our work.
