Ways To Help


There are many ways to help. Please read through all the ways you can help H.A.R.T. and learn more by clicking any topic that interests you.
Your financial support is vital to HART. Our ability to rescue cats and kittens and place them in caring homes depends to a large extent on the generosity of patrons like you. Your contributions also help us reduce feline overpopulation through our active spay/neuter and Trap/Neuter/Return programs. By clicking one of the donate buttons below, you may donate online to one, or both, of two different HART funds.

General FundYour donation to HART’s general fund helps keep shelter’s doors open and covers the costs for intake exams, treatments, and typical medical expenses.

Guardian Angel FundThe Guardian Angel fund finances non-routine medical interventions, such as surgeries, dental work, and other costly procedures. Donations to this fund are used only for these special medical purposes.

If you would prefer to make a credit card donation by phone or in person, please call our office at 805-927-7377, drop by the shelter, or mail a check or money order to HART at 2638 Main St., Cambria, CA 93428.

Wishlist Donations

With the influx of kittens we have seen this season, our supplies have quickly been depleted. ⁣And kitten season 2020 is far from over. Please consider donating an item from our Orphan Kitten Kit wishlist on Amazon. You can choose from a selection of Orphan Kitten Kit supplies that will be delivered to H.A.R.T.

Any help, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated in these difficult times. HART has set up a Covid-19 relief Amazon Wishlist with essential supplies to keep the shelter in operation.

Thank you for helping us take care of these vulnerable kitties! We couldn't do this without our amazing HART family!

Volunteer at the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) Cambria

A Big THANK YOU to all the volunteers at HART Cambria. You make it possible for our shelter to fulfill its mission of rescuing homeless cats and kittens and finding them purrrfect homes. HART could not exist without you.
When you volunteer at HART, you can choose from a variety of activities. The online application lists many volunteer opportunities and includes their descriptions. While some of the activities involve as little as a few hours a month, others may require a time commitment of several hours a week to several hours every day. For example, Foster Home volunteers provide a vital role in preparing cats and kittens to be adopted by taking them into their own homes on a temporary basis.  Click here to learn more about Fostering. We welcome all who are willing to donate any amount of time.

If you are interested in joining our team, please fill in the volunteer application, and someone will get back to you soon. If you prefer to sign up in person, we invite you to drop by the HART office where our staff will be happy to provide you with an application and answer any questions you may have about volunteering. Note: Although we welcome young volunteers, those under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

An easy, thoughtful way to make a future donation to HART. Consider leaving a legacy gift In your will or trust.

You may never see the animals your legacy gift will help, but you can ensure that many cats and kittens will live better lives tomorrow because of your generosity and foresight today. Pet overpopulation and homeless and neglected pets will be with us for the foreseeable future. By including HART in your estate planning, you can make a significant difference in their lives.

Although it is not difficult to leave a legacy gift to a charitable organization, it is important to get professional advice regarding the details—for example, drafting a codicil to a will or adding an amendment to a living trust.
