Help us care for nearly 200 homeless kittens!
As Kitten Season continues to progress here on the Palouse, we want to be prepared for all the orphaned kittens who need our help. HSoP takes in many kittens between April and October, and we often receive kittens who are sick, injured, and in desperate need of care. With your assistance, we can be ready to care for all of the tiny kittens who need us!
To help make sure we have enough of the necessary supplies to last through Kitten Season, we're throwing ourselves a Kitten Shower! If you're wondering what a Kitten Shower is, it looks and functions a lot like a baby shower. The goal is to collect plenty of donated supplies that will help to carry us through to the end of this year's kitten season. The best part of all this? You're invited to join the fun! Our annual Kitten Shower will take place on Sunday, June 4th from 1:00-4:00pm at the 1912 Center Great Room in Moscow.
We will have fun kitten-themed games, adorable coloring pages, educational information, and lovable baby kittens from HSoP. You'll get to watch as neonatal kittens are bottle-fed, observe the funny interactions between kitten siblings, and see first-hand how your contribution makes a difference for our small and furry friends. Please consider joining us at our annual Kitten Shower! For entrance, we ask for a $5 donation or an item from our kitten supply wish list. Our 2023 Kitten Shower has been generously sponsored by our friends at Moscow Realty. Thank you, Moscow Realty, for ensuring that 100% of proceeds will get to benefit our pets! We would also like to thank our local Jimmy John's and Rosauers, for ensuring that we can have delicious refreshments available during the Kitten Shower!

What is Kitten Season?
As the weather warms, dozens of kittens begin to arrive at HSoP. This typically starts when nights are no longer below freezing, and will continue until it is freezing at night again. Kitten Season tends to begin in April and can last until October or November. Due to the warmer weather, more cats roam freely outside. Many outdoor cats are not spayed/neutered, so they are looking for mates. Cats are seasonally polyestrous, meaning they can have multiple heat cycles during their breeding season. Breeding season for cats is during warmer weather and longer daylight hours. All of these factors combine to create Kitten Season each year.
How can you help?
HSoP relies heavily on monetary donations, and donated supplies. It costs HSoP roughly $600 to provide care for a single litter of kittens. This figure includes daily care, housing, food, vaccinations, parasite treatment, and spay/neuter procedures. Many times, HSoP will receive kittens needing extraordinary medical attention. In these situations, we call upon our community to help us bridge the gap in providing a second chance at life.
Monetary donations can be mailed to 2019 E. White Ave. Moscow, ID 83843 or made online via PayPal
Donated supplies can be dropped off or shipped to 2019 E. White Ave. Moscow, ID 83843
