A Sweet Holiday Gift to YOU!

Homeless Animal Rescue Team is thrilled to provide future cat adopters with a sweet gift this holiday season.
Thanks to the generosity of a special friend of HART’s who will pay all the adoption costs over $50,
NOW through the end of January,
ALL cats and kittens at HART are only $50 to adopt.
 That is a savings of $75 per kittens, and $49 for cats.

Can’t adopt?  HART offers volunteer opportunities, as well as other means to lend HART a helping hand.  Please check the extensive website at hartcambria.org; call the office at: 805-927-7377; or visit HART in person at 2638 Main Street and meet some of the delightful cats and kittens waiting to be adopted into a loving home.

Be a HERO to Cats in Need of Medical Care

*We are almost halfway to our $10,000 GivingTuesday fundraising goal - will you help us get there?

The Guardian Angel (GA) Fund ensures there is money available to pay for costly medical treatments for HART’s felines. The GA program saves lives, ensures that cats and kittens are healthy and pain free, and improves their chances of finding good homes.

HART GA Fund has helped many cats in 2023, and now it's time to ensure those funds are there in 2024.
Would you consider donating to help save future cats and kittens who come through HART's door?

H.A.R.T., the Homeless Animal Rescue Team in Cambria

H.A.R.T. the Homeless Animal Rescue Team in Cambria, is located in San Luis Obispo (SLO) county on California’s beautiful central coast. Founded in 1983, H.A.R.T. is a volunteer service organization and no-kill, cage-free shelter committed to rescuing and caring for feral, stray, and relinquished cats. To fulfill our mission, our program includes active adoption, spay/neuter, and trap/neuter/release/manage (TNRM) components—and our success depends on the hard work of dedicated volunteers and the generosity of donors like you.

We have organized this site to help you learn more about our organization and the cats and kittens we shelter. Use the navigation bar to explore our website: cats and kittens available for adoption, H.A.R.T.’s latest happenings, and ways you can help are just a few of our informative pages that are only a click away.

We invite you to drop by and spend some time with our delightful felines.  Our cats and kittens eagerly await an accommodating lap-with-benefits. Yours could be the right one—and before you know it, you just might find yourself adopted.

Be sure to check out the most current HART happenings and Newsletters on our up-to-date News & Events page.
