Cat of the Month Lucille

Lucille is a senior Tuxedo girl with a very sweet disposition. She’s sweet and loves pets, and will make you melt with her gorgeous green eyes! One of her favorite things to do is sit on the bench in her room and get some human pets. She’s great with dogs, children, and other cats. She has a few knocks against her that make it difficult for her to find her furrever home - she is 15 and FIV+. She is still healthy and can live a great life, and lavish love on her new family! Due to dental disease she had to have all of her teeth removed but that hasn't stopped her from getting her fair share of dinner. Being FIV + & having no teeth, she will need to be an inside only or at the very least have a catio or a secure yard to enjoy some outside time. If you are looking for a special girl that deserves a home, Lucille is a great candidate! Lucille has been waiting for a forever home for almost two years and we hope this month she will be able to bring some love to your home. Please help us find a home for Lucille's golden years.

As Cat of the Month for November, Lucille’s adoption fees are waived. HART is a cage-free, no-kill shelter located in lovely downtown Cambria. We love what we do - come on by to meet Lucille and all of our other available cats and kittens at 2638 Main Street in Cambria, or call us at 805-927-7377 with any questions!



We are searching for crafty volunteers to make partial cage covers for cats who are temporarily housed in HART's observation ward. Managing stress can mean the difference between a healthy cat and a sick cat. A simple, cost-effective cage curtain is part of a proper housing environment that addresses well being and promotes health among cats in our care. We are in need of both long and short curtains, please refer to the measurements and DIY instructions at the link below. You can drop off your finished product

at the front desk.  CLICK FOR DIY INSTRUCTIONS

Kittens, Kittens, Kittens!

Kittens, Kittens, Kittens! Yes, it’s Kitten Season again, and the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) could use your help to match up homeless kittens with loving, forever homes.  We hope you will come visit HART’s cage-free shelter to meet the kittens and cats soon. Click on Flyer image for larger view.


Did you know that two cats or kittens are better than one?  They play together, keep each other company while their caregivers are away and, as a result, are more likely to stay content. It’s a big plus for the kittens and for their new family. So, when you adopt one kitten at HART you will receive 50% off the adoption fee for a second kitten.


Newly adopted cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and treated with flea preventative.  In addition, the adoption package includes a free Wellness Vet exam, a collar and tag, and a starter bag of kibble.


If you have room in your home and your heart for a new kitten or two – please visit HART. Located at 2638 Main St., in Cambria, HART is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5pm. More information and cat/kitten photos can be seen online at www.slohart.org and on Facebook/Instagram @HARTCambria. Or, you can call the office at 805-927-7377.

Orphan Kittens Need Foster Homes and Supplies

Our ability to rescue kittens is highly dependent on the amount of foster homes we have available at any given time. Consider becoming a kitten hero, apply now to join our Foster Club. HART will provide all the food, supplies, medical care and support. All you need to provide is a warm home and plenty of TLC! Contact Brittany, HART Foster Coordinator at:

 foster-coordinator@slohart.org with any questions.


HART receives calls, texts and emails about kittens in need everyday throughout kitten season! We have been actively recruiting foster families and our goal is to never have to turn down a kitten in need, but in order to do that we need your help! With your support we can provide our kitten fosters with everything they need to provide life sustaining care to vulnerable kittens as well as items that will help turn them into highly adoptable pets. Please consider donating items from our Amazon wish list to help us with our life-saving efforts. Together we can save them all!
