Monthly Gifts

Donors who setup monthly or quarterly gifts are like that amazing friend that will help you move or take care of you when you have the flu. We cherish these donors who establish automated gifts on the schedule of their choosing — monthly, quarterly, annually! With this support, Nine Lives builds sustainability, improving our fiscal predictability so we can save more cats.
