Cat of the Month

Macho is HART’s Cat of the Month for April.  Although Macho is now a “senior”; at thirteen he is in great health and looks like a youngster. He is a regal looking longhair tuxedo cat.  Macho’s back leg occasionally gets into funny looking positions due to an old injury, but it does not affect his ability to move around.  Instead it adds character to this unique boy - his many hilarious expressions and poses will make you laugh! Macho will relish as many pets as you can give and will climb into your lap and purr contentedly.  Macho has been waiting a long time for his forever home, and is beyond ready to leap into his family's arms.


During April, Macho’s adoption fee will be waived.  Macho and all of the HART cats and kittens look forward to meeting you - please stop by and visit our beautiful cage-free shelter soon.



The Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) is having an Adoption Special during April.   All cats and kittens are available for 50% off their adoption fee.  The adoption package includes a cat or kitten who has been spayed/neutered, is up-to-date on vaccinations, and is micro-chipped.  Also included is a certificate for a free post-adoption wellness check which can be used at local veterinarians.  Visit HART soon to meet one of our beautiful cats or kittens.






The Homeless Animal Rescue Team’s (HART’s) signature fundraising event of the year, the 7th annual Wines, Pines and Felines, is being held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Come celebrate with us at this fun-filled evening which benefits the shelter (HART). The event will be held at the Cambria Pines Lodge, in Cambria.  Join us to enjoy a gourmet meal with included wine.  There will be  Raffle items, Live and silent Auction packages and Café Musique will entertain (finishing with special set of dance music). Auctions will include: shopping and dining around Cambria, featuring The Sea Chest, Madeline's and Robin's; passes to the Bay Theater and a performance at Cal Poly, custom pet photography by Elizabeth Haug, massage by Cat Rhynne, baskets of wine (including magnums) and other goodies,  Dennis Curry's "Samburu  Leopard" signed lithograph  and many other offerings, plus door prizes


The cost for the evening is $95 per person.  Tickets are on sale at the shelter through April 9th.

HART's Gift Shop for Cat Lovers

The gift shop is celebrating Spring!  It's a fantastic place to shop for everything from pet supplies to jewelry.  You will find quality gifts for the cat lovers, cats and dogs in your life.  This month the shop has lots of bunnies and chicks and cats masquerading as bunnies.  New soft goods include towels, purses, and eye glass cases (made by our volunteers).  And of course there are always toys and treats for all of your pets.  We hope you will come visit and see for yourself!


The Gift Shop is located at the HART Shelter, 2638 Main St., Cambria, and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5pm.

Kittens need Foster Homes and supplies

Kitten season 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
