Calling All Crafty Volunteers | A Home for the Holidays | Kittens, Kittens, Kittens!


Cat of the Month George

At five years young, George is hilarious, spunky and super personable. With his bright green eyes and soft, fluffy tail, George is a handsome representative of his species—but that’s not all. At HART, this indoor-only kitty is admired as a comically entertaining fellow, and we have a sneaking suspicion that George will become even more appealing with age. He’s a bit shy with strangers, but he is a natural-born charmer who will make a fine companion for his lucky adopter. He has always been an indoor-only kitty, so that’s where he feels most comfortable and safe. However, he loves our catio here at HART where he can watch the birds and bask in the unfiltered light, safe from predators. He has a personality that is bigger than the room he's in, exemplified by his luxurious long gray tail that wraps around your legs when he's in the mood for full body cuddles. This kitty is the cat's meow! He enjoys head scratches, playing with wand toys and lasers, and meal times. His favorite place to hang out is a cardboard box! And believe it or not... he's still available for adoption!


As Cat of the Month for December, George’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 George 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!


Home for the Holidays

The holidays are a great time for family pets to snuggle up by a warm fire, enjoy extra love and scratches from visiting family members and receive their very own gift under the Christmas tree! We believe that shelter pets deserve to experience the same joys that the holidays bring millions of families each year. That's why this holiday season Homeless Animal Rescue Team is asking you to extend a branch of kindness by giving a HART cat a Home for the Holidays.


Choose a shelter cat to foster for 2 weeks or more now through December 31st! Necessary supplies including food and litter will be provided. APPLY NOW and make sure to select Home for the Holidays! Email foster-coordinator@slohart.org for more information. Thanks for giving our deserving cats a foster home for the holidays!


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


HART Guardian Angel Certificates

Looking for a special holiday gift?  HART Guardian Angel Certificates are a Gift of Life.  The certificates are available in any amount of $20 and over.  The recipient receives a customized printed certificate stating that you have made a donation, in their name, to the HART Guardian Angel Fund.  Your gift will help provide life-changing medical care for a cat or kitten in need.



Guardian Angel Certificates can be purchased at the HART office or by phone by calling HART at 805-927-7377.


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.
