HART – Update

As the cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue throughout San Luis Obispo county and the United States, HART has taken the following precautions. Our feline shelter in Cambria is currently limiting the number of visitors in our shelter to 1-2 parties at any one time. In consideration of public health and safety concerns, we are giving priority to those with appointments for adoption or meet-and-greets with our cats and kittens. We are also 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 with our kitties.

We also welcome those who do not have an appointment, but please be advised you may be asked to wait or to return at a later date if our shelter is currently at capacity - we apologize for this inconvenience.

We ask that all visitors wear a protective face mask/covering at all times while visiting the shelter. We also ask every visitor to use hand sanitizer immediately upon entry to the building and to wash their hands in our bathroom before visiting the cat rooms. While traveling between cat rooms, we also require the use of hand sanitizer before entering a new room. You will find hand sanitizer stations outside every door. This is in consideration of the health and safety of not only the common people, but of our feline population as well. We thank you for your respect and cooperation in this matter.

HART would like to thank everyone who is fostering, donating, and supporting Hart during this COVID-19 crisis. If you would like to help H.A.R.T. during this challenging time, please check out our Ways to Help page. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Intakes will be limited to within the Cambria area (Harmony to San Simeon) on a case by case emergency basis. Please call (805) 927-7377 or email us at warmhearts@slohart.org with any questions or to discuss a potential relinquishment. We strive to continue our mission of rescuing animals while also protecting the health of our volunteers and visitors. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
