Cat of the Month Starlet

Who’s got silky black fur, piercing golden-green eyes, and a bright personality with tons of love to give? That’s Starlet! Starlet is a 5 year old, long-haired female eagerly awaiting her forever home. She was relinquished to Hart over a year ago when her previous family was no longer allowed to have pets in their apartment. She has been an indoor/outdoor kitty but primarily indoors, and considering her long, luxurious fur, she’ll do best as an indoor-only cat. Starlet is a joy to be around as she’s always eager to play, be brushed, or sit on your lap and purr the day away. Starlet will do well as an only cat or with a play mate; she’s very easy going. This sweet and spunky girl will make the perfect addition to any family or a loyal friend till the end to a special someone. If you are looking for love in the New Year, look no further than Starlet!


As Cat of the Month for January, Starlet’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 Starlet 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!


Cat Pawsitive

We are very excited to announce that Homeless Animal Rescue Team has been selected to participate in the Jackson Galaxy Cat Pawsitive program in 2020. This program will provide our dedicated team of staff and volunteers with supplies and training that will help enrich the lives of our shelter residents using positive reinforcement and clicker training. These methods will improve their confidence and encourage them to put their best paw forward on the adoption floor.


Thank you to Greater Good Organization, the Petco Foundation and the Jackson Galaxy Project for this wonderful opportunity! We hope to help many cats find and maintain their mojo.




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! We still have many kittens 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.

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.
