More than 200 cats and kittens are in need of adoption. The Nine Lives Foundation, a no-kill cat and kitten shelter based in Redwood City, will have its lease terminated at the end of June, and all the animals at the shelter will have to be relocated by the end of May.
Liliana Martinez, who works at the foundation, offered assurance that all of the cats and kittens will be going somewhere, since volunteers have stepped up to foster them on a temporary basis.
The foundation is seeking people who are interested in adopting or fostering cats or kittens. Cats that are not a good fit can be brought back, she said. Cats over 1 year old can be adopted for $20.
The foundation is not able to accept new animals, she said. Nearby shelters are also at capacity.
The last day for adoptions is May 31. Nine Lives will continue to host spay and neuter clinics, and is searching for donations and a new location.
