The Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) on Sunday is asking San Luis Obispo County community members to consider fostering an adult or senior cat in need from its feline shelter in Cambria.

According to an email from the HART foster coordinator, the organization rescues adult and senior cats who are failing to thrive in caged shelters, cats in poor conditions such as hoarding situations and stray or community cats that are looking for a family.

HART also takes in adult and senior cats whose owners were no longer able to keep them due to financial hardship, cats who require hospice care or cats whose family member has died and has nowhere to go, said the email.

The foster coordinator said no experience is required to foster a cat and HART will provide all of the supplies, veterinary care and support.

To apply to foster a cat from HART, complete the HART Foster Club Application. Questions can be emailed to the foster coordinator, Brittany Donecho, at

HART staff added they are using curbside pickup for any foster that arrives to pick up a shelter cat. All staff members will have a face mask and freshly washed hands.
