Welcome to 9 Lives Lanzarote
9 Lives Lanzarote are a registered charity in the Canary Islands (under the name “Asociación Sobre Animales 9 Lives Lanzarote” Licenced Charity No: G1/S1/20820-15/L) to help the feral cats of Lanzarote.
Via our spay/neuter programme, we aim to control 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 – and thus raising the living standards of our local cat colonies.
Based on the same principles that the Twinkle Trust on the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura employs, our work includes the following:
|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 would like 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.
