International Cat Day is a celebration that takes place annually on August 8. It was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare as a day to raise public awareness for cats and learn about ways to help and protect them. For 24 hours, cats get the recognition and veneration they deserve as one of humanity’s oldest and most beloved partner animals. The day promotes the wants and needs of cats and encourages owners to find ways to improve their bond with their pets.
Not every cat has the good fortune to have a good home. Stray cats are subjected to cruelty and injuries due to car accidents, encounters with other animals, or harmful human interactions. This is where the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) comes in. In need a feline companion in your life? At Cambria’s no-kill cat shelter, one can find a fabulous feline fur-ever friend to adopt.
HART is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon until 5:00 p.m. and is located at 2638 Main Street. Not only are wonderful adult cats available to foster or adopt, but many kittens are now also available for adoption. HART encourages visitors to socialize with the cats in the shelter. In the HART gift shop a gift can be found for every cat-loving friend. Stop by HART today.
