Cat of the Month Leonardo

We have a very special cat in need for the month of October - Leonardo has been living at HART since he was one month old, and he is now almost 4 1/2 yrs. old. As you can see, he's a handsome guy and he has a wonderful personality and is also good with other cats.


We guess he's been left behind all these years because of his eyelid agenesis. Eyelid agenesis sounds scarier than it actually is, it just means that he has deformed eyelids. All you need to do to help him out is to give him Liquid Tear eye drops one or two times a day. Leonardo is very good at staying still for this, so it's not too hard. It’s also important for Leonardo to stay inside because of the dust and dirt in the outdoors which could irritate his eyes.


Leonardo is a shy but affectionate boy once he comes to trust you. He enjoys sitting on a friendly lap and back scratches. Since he gets along so well with other felines, he would love to be adopted with another cat or would do well in a home with another mellow kitty. Please help us find Leonardo his forever home.


As Cat of the Month for September, Leonardo’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 Leonardo 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!


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!
