Adhering to the Five Freedoms ensures we are giving the companion animals in our care everything they need to live a healthy and happy life.

Enrichment Program Help us keep our pets happy! ​ Here at HSoP we strive to ensure our animals receive the highest level of care possible. This includes physical, mental, and emotional stimulation while they stay with us. We do our best to make sure each animal in our facility receives all preventative and necessary medical attention, as well as enrichment in their kennels to keep them entertained. Did you know animals can go stir crazy when they are confined in a small space for periods of time with no distractions? This is a common issue for animal shelters nationwide, and we are determined to limit that likelihood as much as possible for the animals here at HSoP. The staff here at HSoP are dedicated to making sure each animal has plenty of stimulation both physical and mental, to keep them from getting bored. Our wonderful volunteers help with this by taking the animals out of their kennels for some free time in a different area. ​ ​ ​ ​ Our dogs enjoy going to their outside kennels and side yard to play fetch, stretch their legs, and change their scenery! Our cats love to get out of their kennels and go into our adoption room so they can stretch their legs, chase some toys, and get some extra special cuddles! Thank you Nylabone for donating roughly 250 Chews! We want our animals to have a great experience here while they wait for their new homes, so we are starting an Enrichment Program. This program will be dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to keep our furry friends busy and happy in their kennels! To achieve this goal of ours, we need your help! We have created a Wishlist on our amazon of all the items we think could be of great use for this program. We hope you will take a moment to browse through our list and pick a few things you would like to donate to our furry friends here at HSoP!… Donations can be mailed to 2019 E.

With donations and grants like this, we can continue to give our animals the highest quality of care possible.

  • Trap-Neuter-Return | HSoP

    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Free-roaming cats (feral and stray) are the biggest source of homeless kittens every year. HSoP takes in nearly 250 kittens per summer, and 1/2 of those kittens come in without a mom. Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) will prevent unwanted cat births, reduce the feline infectious diseases in our area, and lower the number of unowned, homeless pets in our county. The Humane Society of the Palouse does not accept feral cats into our shelter. TNR Application TNR Agreement Be a life-saver and donate to our TNR fund today! Donate HSoP has created a TNR program to assist the residents of Latah County with feral cats on their property. Our TNR program will provide feral caregivers in our community the ability to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and ear-tip their feral cats at participating veterinary clinics. This program is free to all Latah County residents, but a suggested $20.00 donation is appreciated. Our newly created TNR program is dedicated to our feral felines here in Latah County. Feral cats are wild and not domesticated, meaning they are not suited to be a house pet. Feral cats do not want to be around people, and are better fit for sheds, barns, and garages. For more information on feral cats click here. HSoP can loan out live-traps for you catch your feral cat(s) safely and humanely. We do require a $50.00 cash or check deposit that will be returned to you when the trap is brought back to us. TNR Process: Apply for the TNR program through HSoP. You must submit the TNR Application and the TNR Agreement to HSoP.​ Forms can be emailed to: or mailed to HSoP: ​​2019 E. White Ave. Moscow, ID 83843. HSoP will review your application, and send you the coupon when you are approved. ​Once you receive your TNR coupon from us, call the participating veterinary clinic to schedule your surgery drop-off time. Cedar Veterinary Hospital (208)882-1772​ North Palouse Veterinary Clinic (208)875-1096 Set your live-trap For tips and tricks on trapping, click here. ​ Transport your feral cat(s) to the veterinary clinic at your scheduled time.​ Bring TNR coupon(s) along to the veterinary clinic at your scheduled time. HSoP will not reimburse for past procedures. ​ Pick up your feral cat(s) from the veterinary clinic at your scheduled time. Return your feral cat(s) back to your property and release them, following any recommendations the veterinarian gave you. Why should you return the cat(s) back to your property? If a feral cat showed up on your property and won't leave, it is there for a reason. It may have found good shelter in your barn, or a good source of food like rodents. If the feral cat feels like it has everything it needs, it will stay. If you remove that cat, another cat will move in for the same reasons the first cat did. By keeping your feral cat on your property after it has been through our TNR, you will have one cat who will protect your property and will be less likely to allow another cat to enter.

    WE'RE EXPECTING! It's a, it's a girl...wait...IT'S KITTENS! We are throwing ourselves a kitten shower to help us prepare for kitten season! Due to Covid-19, we are going to have this virtual event! What is Kitten Season? As the weather warms, hundreds of kittens begin to arrive at HSoP. Beginning as soon as the nights are no longer freezing or below in the spring and lasting until when freezing begins again during the fall. Kitten Season usually begins in April, and can last until October. Due to the warmer weather, more cats are freely roaming outdoors. 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. ​ What is a kitten shower? A kitten shower is much like a baby shower, but instead of planning for one new baby to care for and feed...we are planning for over 250! Prior to Covid, HSoP would host a kitten shower event at the 1912 center in Moscow. We would host games, kitten snuggling, contests, and foster information booths. This year, we are hosting this virtually! HSoP will be using our website and Facebook to post videos and infographics about kitten season. ​ When is the kitten shower? We will begin our week-long virtual kitten shower at the end of April! HSoP will be posting videos and infographics about kitten season on our social media and our website. During this time we will be informing our community about kitten season, how they can assist HSoP in our life-saving efforts, discussing our foster program, and asking for donations. ​ How can you help? HSoP relies heavily on monetary donations, and donated supplies. Each litter of kittens at HSoP can cost roughly $600.00 (this includes their care, housing, food, vaccinations, parasite treatment, and spay/neuter). Many times HSoP will receive kittens needing extraordinary medical attention, so we need the communities help to offer these homeless kittens a second chance at life! Monetary donations can mailed to: 2019 E. White Ave. Moscow, ID 83843 or through PayPal at: PayPal Donated supplies can be dropped off or shipped to: 2019 E.
