The 9 Lives Cat Rescue is a small, welcoming group for cats and the people who love them. Since its foundation in 2006, it has provided care and compassion to stray and surrendered cats in Oxford and Lafayette County MS. The 9 Lives Cat Rescue Group is a volunteer only based 501(C)3 non-profit group. We can take in a limited number of animals (all ages) depending on available foster homes. We offer low and free spay/neuter surgeries for cats (and the occasional dog). We help with transporting animals to/from the veterinarians on surgery days for owners that are unable to do so (no vehicle, cannot afford gas, working hrs, other). We give advice to people to help them keeping their animals to prevent them from being surrendered to 9LCR or to high kill shelters. We practice TNR since 2006 and have managed that way cat populations on several locations in town. Trapped feral cats are not tested for FelV/Fiv as a standard procedure, only if they appear sickly and veterinarian suspects they may be positive. 9LCR is helping with injured (feral) cats and provides trapping of those and consequent medical care. 9LCR has bottle-fed orphans, cared for sick and injured cats/kittens. We do as much as possible to avoid euthanasia. Euthanasia is only considered if a veterinarian recommends it and there is no other hope for recovery.
