Residents can make Goodwill donations to benefit HART animal rescue
North Coast folks in spring-cleaning mode have an easy way to dispose of some usable but unwanted stuff: The Goodwill donations trailer will be at H.A.R.T. in Cambria on Friday through Sunday, May 3 through 5.
Goodwill pays The Homeless Animal Rescue Team about $1,000 for the donations, and all funds raised go toward the care and housing of the animals. Donate from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. For early drop-off, call the H.A.R.T. office at 805927-7377.
H.A.R.T. is a no-kill, cage-free shelter for rescued, relinquished or feral cats. H.A.R.T. services include active adoptions, spay/neuter services and trap/neuter/release of feral animals. For details about the volunteer service organization, go to slohart.org.
