We invite you to become part of the # GivingTuesday movement.

Giving Tuesday, November 30, 2021 is a global movement day that inspires hundreds of millions of people to GIVE, COLLABORATE, and CELEBRATE GENEROSITY.

HART’s cats and kittens want you to know about a Giving Tuesday cause close to their hearts...the HART Guardian Angel Program. This program pays for expensive life-changing medical care for HART cats and kittens, beyond what is possible from the HART General Fund. 100% of your donations go directly to paying for this medical care.

Thanks to generous donations from our wonderful supporters, we have raised $3,681 to HART's Guardian Angel fund! This will provide life-changing medical care for cats and kittens in need. We've raised $3,681 towards our $10,000 goal, we're 30% there - we can't thank you all enough!

Meet HART's Cat of the Month - Moana!
This beautiful feline is just 2-years-old and eager for her forever home! Moana arrived at HART with a litter of babies, just as adorable as her. She delivered them under a family's porch here in Cambria. Because Moana is so friendly and trusting, she allowed the homeowners to take her little family to HART for safe-keeping. With her babies weaned and Moana spayed, she's ready to start the next chapter of her life. Moana is the cuddliest, most playful and loving cat you could ask for. She will do great with kids all ages and is the perfect family pet. Moana will need to be indoor-only given her primarily white fur, but she's so easy-going that harness-training or taking her out in a stroller could be fun excursions for her and the whole family!

H.A.R.T. Fall 2021 Shelter Update

H.A.R.T. is now open! We are excited to announce we no longer require an appointment to visit our shelter. For the health and safety of our staff and volunteers, we are still asking all visitors to wear a face covering. If you are interested in adopting, we ask you come between the hours of 12 - 4 pm Tuesday thru Saturday.

We are still happy to set up appointments for those interested in visiting our retail shop, interested in volunteer opportunities, or would like to spend time visiting and socializing our kitties.  You are invited to call the shelter at (805) 927-7377 for how to set up an appointment or to receive information on our available cats.  You may also email the front office at for more information on adoption, cat relinquishment, and volunteer opportunities.

Our need for fosters continues throughout 2021.  We have many kittens, seniors, and special need cats who are in need of love and affection.  These cats could benefit greatly from the care and attention they receive in a loving foster home.  To learn more about H.A.R.T.'s Foster Club

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.
