Cat of the Month

HART’s January Cat of the Month is Jackson.   Jackson is a handsome senior ginger and white tabby with golden-green eyes.  He's a mellow boy with a loving personality.  Jackson was left at HART when his previous owner relocated and was unable to take him along.


Unfortunately, shelter life is not for Jackson; he desperately misses having a special person to call his own.  Jackson has lost significant weight since he lost his owner and he seems depressed.  While Jackson enjoys basking in the sunlight and eating kitty treats, nothing perks him up and gets his tail wagging more than one-on-one attention from a caring person.  Jackson longs to be held in someone's arms, fed, brushed loved and allowed to cuddle up at night.


The adoption fee for Jackson will be waived during the month of January!  If you think you could be Jackson's "someone special", please visit  Jackson at HART soon.  He's longing to meet you.

Cambria Christmas Market &

Raffle for Disneyland Park Hopper Tickets were a success!

HART once again hosted the Santa booth at the seventh annual Cambria Christmas Market .  The Market and light displays drew visitors from far and near.


Photos with Santa were a hit, as was the sold-out Raffle to win a 4-pack of park hopper tickets to Disneyland!  Matt Anderson of Paso Robles had winning ticket number 807. He and his wife, residents of SLO county since 1998, will be taking their two little girls to Disneyland in the new year. It will be the first time for the children to visit the Magic Kingdom. Congratulations to the Anderson family!

Photos with Santa were a fundraiser for HART and 100% of proceeds directly benefit HART’s mission of rescuing and caring for animals.
