The Nine Lives Guardianship 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.
