After a two-year hiatus, the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) is happy to announce the annual Wines, Pines and Felines fundraiser will return on the Saturday evening of November 6 at Cambria Pines Lodge. Tickets will include a delicious meal with wine and entertainment by Jill Knight. In addition to live auction items, there will be a large and lovely selection of silent auction items on which to bid. For more details, please contact HART at 805-927-7377.
HART was founded in 1983 by a small core of volunteers who fostered animals in their own homes. Starting with Mika (a wayward cat in a family way), HART has placed thousands of homeless animals into permanent homes through adoption and foster programs. In 2000 HART acquired its own premises by renting a former veterinarian’s office, allowing for an expansion of resources in the community. Through partnerships with educators and other rescue groups, HART has helped to develop an effective Humane Education program that has been shared with local schools and communities.
