About Us

Who We Are

Nine Lives Aruba Foundation is a registered foundation in Aruba (KvK# S1631) comprised of a group of animal lovers from Aruba and the United States who have joined forces to stop the overpopulation and abuse of cats and dogs in Aruba. There are many groups and foundations on the island doing their best to help dogs.  As a result, we are focusing on cats. However, as long as we have the funds and space, we will never turn away a cat or dog that is in need. 

How We're Helping

Nine Lives Aruba is dedicated to saving the lives of cat (and dogs) in Aruba.  We promote the humane treatment of animals, the benefits of spaying and neutering your pet and strive to educate all to end pet overpopulation.  We also offer shelter and care for cats and dogs until we find new families to love them. We think the easiest/ fastest way to accomplish our vision is through education.  Our volunteers have provided information and conducted seminars about animals in classes at schools in Aruba and include:​

  • Basic information about animal care
  • Animal rights
  • How to prevent overpopulation
  • Spay and neuter and it’s benefits 
  • Animal rescue

How You Can Help

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, bringing much needed supplies with you on your next trip to Aruba or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, we at Nine Lives Aruba Thank You!  We couldn't accomplish our goals or help the cats (and dogs) of Aruba without the help of supporters like you.  


We are dedicated to improving the lives of cats (and dogs) in Aruba.  We can't continue to do what we do without the help of others.  If you would like to help with our vet bill, help buy food for the cats (and dogs) in our care or bring supplies with you on your next trip to Aruba, we THANK YOU!  If you are in Aruba and would like to help, please contact us via email, WhatsApp or phone and one of our volunteers can meet you in person.
