Cat Adoption Special | Foster Homes Needed


Cat of the Month

Winnie is an elegant beauty with a lovely, muted calico (blue, cream, and white) color pattern. She is an indoor-only kitty, and as she is unaccustomed to living with other animals, she would prefer to be “queen of the castle.” Nine-year-old Winnie still has lots of love to give and would make an ideal companion for a mature adult. During September, the adoption fee for Winnie will be reduced by 50%.  An added bonus: Winnie is eligible for the Seniors for Seniors program, which means her adoption fee is waived for senior adopters (62+).


Kittens, Kittens, Kittens!  Adoption Special

Throughout September, adopt one kitten and get 75% off the adoption fee for a second kitten. Experience shows that two cats or kittens are better than one. They play together, keep each other company while owners are away and, as a result, are more likely to stay out of trouble. It’s a big plus for the kittens and for their new family.  See a short video from HART's Kitten Room or better yet, visit soon.


The adoption package includes 2 kittens which have been spayed/neutered, are up-to-date on 4-way and Rabies vaccinations, and have been micro-chipped.  Also included is a certificate for a free post-adoption vet wellness exam, a “welcome home” package, a collar and tag.

HART's Gift Shop for Cat Lovers

The gift shop is featuring the work of a new artist who takes photos of cats and then transfers them onto a fuzzy mink fabric.  The result is an amazing lifelike look-alike.  There are also cat "essentials" available-- need a solution to litter getting scattered outside of the litter box?  Drop by and pick up a litter mat. The Gift Shop is located at the HART Shelter, 2638 Main St., Cambria, and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5pm.

Kitten Season Underway

This is an incredibly busy and expensive time of the year for HART.  You can help by donating money or kitten supplies to help us prepare for all the little ones.  Visit our Wish List on Amazon to see the type of supplies that can really help. smile.amazon.com


Foster Homes Needed

It's Kitten Season, and HART is suddenly swimming in kittens!  A very important part of caring for the little ones is providing them with a Foster Home.    Foster Homes are a safe place for kittens to grow and be socialized prior to moving to the shelter or their forever home.   Have you ever considered becoming a Foster parent for a cat or kitten or perhaps even a momma cat with kittens?  If so, we hope you will consider fostering for HART.


Prior experience is not required, just the desire and the time to nurture. Our HART Fosters are provided with training and guidance and the cats and kittens are provided with food, litter, medical care, and supplies.   To learn more, click here or call the shelter at 805-927-7377.


HART hosts the Cambria Chamber of Commerce Mixer

HART hosted the August Cambria Chamber of Commerce Mixer.  The 30+ people in attendance enjoyed refreshments on a lovely Summer afternoon.  Many watched videos and  toured the HART shelter.  Rick Auricchio won the door prize.  Newest Chamber member, "The Spot" was in attendance.
