COVID-19 Update
March 26, 2020

To our valued supporters and community:


HSoP would like to update you all on required changes in our current operations.  In cooperation with the 21 day stay-at-home-order issued by Idaho Governor Little:

  • We have confirmed with the City of Moscow that HSoP staff are considered essential workers, and we will be able to continue providing care to the companion animals in our charge.

  • Volunteers: All volunteer shifts are suspended until further notice.

  • Adoptions: HSoP will be closed to adoptions during the 21-day period

  • Intake of owned animals: HSoP will be unable to take in any owner-surrendered pets during this time.

  • Lost and Found Services:  HSoP staff will still be at the shelter during the stay-at-home-order.

  • Should you find a lost pet, or have your pet go missing, please contact us at 208-883-1166.

  • Stray cats who are injured or ill will be our priority. We ask that if you see a roaming cat that is healthy, please call HSoP to leave a found report with us. 


If you have a lost or found pet, we also encourage you to use the following Facebook community groups:


Pick-up and drop-off of lost/found animals must be done by appointment only.  Please contact HSoP at 208-883-1166 or to arrange these essential services with staff.  In case of an emergency, please contact your local law enforcement.  For City of Moscow residents, contact 208-882-2677.  


        Please Donate!   During this pandemic, our revenue stream will be affected.  We will not be able to hold our normal fundraising events, which will greatly affect our financial situation.  If you are able, please consider making a monetary donation to help ensure the wellbeing of HSoP. We ask that you mail donations to: HSoP, P.O. Box 8847, Moscow, ID 83843. We ask that donations not be made in person at this time. Please visit here to donate online.


         Supplies Needed:  We are continuing our pet pantry program by appointment during this time.  Please consider purchasing an extra bag of pet food when ordering online, and shipping to: HSoP, 2019 E. White Ave, Moscow ID 83843.  


Please contact HSoP with any questions you may have at 208-883-1166 or email  We thank you for your understanding and assistance.
