Be Smitten with a Kitten at HART

Kitten Season at the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) has arrived.  Plenty of adorable (vaccinated and spayed/neutered) little kitties are available at HART.  Stop by the no-kill cat shelter located at 2638 Main Street to adopt a fur baby.

     These kittens have been lovingly fostered by a network of caring and compassionate volunteer cat lovers who socialize these kitties to make them very adoptable.  Many sweet, friendly, and healthy adult cats are waiting to be adopted or fostered as well.    

     HART is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon until 5:00 p.m.  Please come visit during the hours of operation to adopt or foster one of these special animals or sign up for any of the many volunteer opportunities available at HART.  For more information, visit the website at:
