Founded on November 5, 2003 by Monica Thompson, D.V.M., the Feline Well-Care Clinic started as a veterinary hospital that occasionally rescued cats. As time went on, Dr. Thompson discovered that her passion was rescuing cats from Bay Area shelters who would otherwise be put to sleep. She eventually established the no-kill Nine Lives Foundation in December of 2004, which is a community-based not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization. Nine Lives Foundation is located at 3016 Rolison Road, Redwood City, CA. Phone: (650) 368-1365.
