Featured Cat - Gaela 


We have a very special featured cat this month.  Everyone meet Gaela.  She came to HART as a 5 month old pregnant mom from our friends at Mountain Animal Rescue in Corinna, ME on May 31st.  They rescued her after she was witnessed being thrown from a car.  The very next day after arriving to a HART foster home, she gave birth to 4 healthy kittens; Jasper, Jemma, Jinx, and June.  She is a wonderful mom who is working hard to raise her kittens.  She and her kittens are not available yet, but will be soon.  Go to our adoptable kittens page to see the kittens who are available for adoption. 

Welcome to HART!

Our Mission
To provide refuge, comfort, and medical attention to cats that have been surrendered, abandoned, injured, or abused – and to find permanent loving homes to adopt them.

HART is a mostly volunteer run organization that provides a safe refuge to hundreds of homeless cats each year. We rely on the support of individual donors to help us rescue and provide shelter for these innocent animals.


As a no-kill shelter with limited space, we must carefully balance how many cats we can accept while at the same time providing the best environment for the cats that are already in our care. We maintain an average population of about 110 cats at the shelter and have a number of cats who stay with us for months or years. We also rely on local foster homes to care for some of our cats - hundreds of kittens every year as well as a small number of senior and special needs adults.

Donate Today

HART receives no public funding of any kind. We are supported entirely by the generosity of individual donors, foundations, and businesses. Please make a tax-deductible donation today. 

Volunteer With Us

HART volunteers are an incredible group of people who are enthusiastic about cats and dedicated to their care. We are always looking for more people to join our team. Opportunities exist in a wide variety of programs both inside and outside the shelter.
