Nine Lives Legacy

Learn More

Nine Lives Legacy

The Nine Lives Legacy Program allows Cat Care Society to serve as temporary caregiver for your cats should they outlive you. This is a key benefit of the Nine Lives Legacy Society.

The program is available for your cats, whether or not they were adopted from our shelter.

Your cat will be brought to our shelter by one of our compassionate staff members or volunteers. It will then be given a physical exam by our caring on-site veterinarian. Depending on the situation, your cat will be placed in one of our loving foster homes or kept at the shelter for better exposure to adopting families.

Rest assured that your cat will receive the best care and affection from our experienced staff and volunteers during its stay. Cats will also receive ongoing medical care from our veterinary staff to ensure their continued good health.

How to Enroll

The first step is to make a provision for a gift to the Cat Care Society in your estate plan. Then let us know so we can add you to our roster of the Nine Lives Legacy Society members.

You will receive the following:

1) Estate Planning Notification form (to be returned to us).
2) Personality profile form for each cat you wish to enroll (to be returned to us).
3) Informational magnet to place on your refrigerator.
4) Wallet ID card to alert others to the plans you have made for your pets.

You may submit additional pet profiles to enroll cats you adopt in the future. It is important that the personality profile be filled out completely and thoroughly and submitted to CCS for each cat you want included in the program. Attaching a picture of your cat is critical! This profile not only helps the staff at CCS, but it will also help your cat’s future new family.

When enrolling more than one cat, it is recommended that Cat Care Society be notified during the process so that we can plan accordingly.

Nibbles ‘n’ Kibbles


Nibbles 'n' Kibbles

Nibbles ‘n’ Kibbles is Cat Care Society’s program to offer free cat food and cat litter to people who are experiencing temporary financial challenges. This helps them continue to care for their cats, who may be one of their few comforts during this time. It also helps prevent them from turning the cats loose on the streets, neglecting them, or taking them to a shelter.

You can help by offering donations of dry and canned cat food and cat litter.  Please clearly mark your donation as for Nibbles ‘n’ Kibbles, and drop them off at the shelter during shelter hours. We can provide a receipt for you for tax purposes.

The cats thank you!

Open to the public every First and Third Saturday of the month. Also available weekdays by appointment only. Contact if you need to schedule an appointment.

Temporary Care


Temporary Care

While we believe that we have an excellent shelter, and our cats are provided with the absolute best care, no animal shelter can compete with a loving home. That is why Cat Care Society is proud to offer a temporary care program for people who are unable to care for their cats temporarily due to a home foreclosure, temporary homelessness, an extended hospital stay, etc.  We provide food, shelter, and medical care for the cat(s) for up to 30 days, at which point they return to the families who love them most. This program not only keeps families together, it keeps cats out of animal shelters. Note that CCS has limited spots for temporary care cats, and participation in the program is subject to space and availability.

Please contact our shelter for more information: 303.239.9680 option 3.


Traveling Cats


Traveling Cats

The shelter isn’t the only place that you’ll run into our cats. We’ve partnered with several nursing homes and assisted living facilities and bring cats by regularly to visit the residents. Not only does this provide enrichment and a change of scenery for our cats, but it is also an occasion to look forward to for many residents who many not be able to have pets of their own. We have also partnered with select Petco locations to offer cats for adoption. Our cats never stay at the store for longer than seven days before returning to the shelter for a check up, so if you meet one you love don’t hesitate! We also take cats to offsite locations for special events such as Pride Fest, Snow Cats, and other major events throughout the year.
