The Homeless Animal Rescue Team celebrates its new location with an open house and ribbon cutting from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 3, at 2638 Main St., in East Village, next door to the Creekside Inn.
The afternoon will include shelter tours, refreshments and music by Dakota Noble.
A ribbon cutting by Kim Maston, Honorary Mayor of Cambria Emeritus, and a special presentation are set for 3:30 p.m.
An animal rescue oxygen mask kit will be given to Cambria Fire Department Chief Mark Miller by Genete Bowen, founder of DogE911. The gift, made possible by the Invisible Fence distributor on the West Coast, is part of a project to help reduce the more 40,000 deaths attributed to fires in the U.S. each year.
Guiding the public to the free event will be 32 large hearts created by local artists. HART is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned cats on the North Coast, finds homes for them, and promotes spay and neuter programs.
