Update as of 3/14/20:

In response to the increasing concern regarding COVID-19, Humane Society Silicon Valley is temporarily making changes to some of our services and suspending some of our public programs. These proactive measures are being taken in an effort to keep our staff, volunteers, and customers safe, follow the recommendations of public health officials, and focus our team and resources to maximize lifesaving impact.

The following services will be modified or suspended until further notice:

Adoptions

  • Milpitas Animal Community Center: We are remaining open and have adjusted our adoptions process to ensure we can maintain safe distances between parties at all times. Visitors will be asked to sign in to the kiosks at the front of our building and wait outside or in their cars until they are texted and asked to enter the building. Please note that wait times may be longer than usual. To view all adoptable animals ahead of your visit, please visit hssv.org/adopt.
  • Neighborhood Adoptions Centers at Petco West San Jose and Petco Sunnyvale: are temporarily closed.

Services

  • Spay/neuter, vaccinations, and TNR services are temporarily suspended.
  • End of Life Services: Our end of life/euthanasia services continue as usual. Visitors may be asked to wait outside to limit the number of people in our lobby at a time. Please follow signs near our intake lobby for more information.
  • Lost and Found Animals: Our lost and found services continue as usual. Visitors may be asked to wait outside to limit the number of people in our lobby at a time. Please follow signs near our intake lobby for more information.
  • Education Programs: Birthday parties, Scout programs, Center Tours, and Kind Kids Field Trips are temporarily suspended.
  • Training and Puppy Socials: Training classes continue as usual. All puppy socials are temporarily suspended.

We are closely monitoring the situation and making real-time adjustments as needed. Please check back here for updates or sign up for email to receive updates to your inbox.

Please note that despite changes to our programs, we will continue to maintain the high standards of animal care we always provide. We have staff, volunteers, and foster families providing for our animals’ needs around the clock.

Thank you for your support,

Kurt Krukenberg
HSSV President

  1. Are you still accepting donations? I have a bunch of freshly laundered towels that I was hoping you could use. Let me know, happy to drop them to you.
    Best,
    Lisa

    1. Hi Lisa, while we do appreciate you thinking of us, right now we’d like to limit the traffic into our facility only to essential visitors. This is for the safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors.

      Thanks again!

    2. Hi Lisa,

      I have an update on item donations! We are taking limited donations – linens (towels and blankets) and unopened pet food can be dropped off in the bins outside our intake lobby.

  2. I currently lost my job due to COVID19 and would like to use my time to volunteer! Are you still accepting new volunteers at this time?

  3. Hi Alexandra,

    Do you still need foster homes? I’m able to foster 1-2 house trained dogs in my home w/ fenced-in yard in Sunnyvale. Thank you for all that you do!

    1. Hi Nikki! We will update everyone with our current needs and how to help as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and support!

  4. Is there a pressing need for volunteers at this time? Are y’all short-staffed , volunteer-wise?

    1. Hi Hal, thanks for checking in. We do not currently have a pressing need for volunteers, but if you’d like to fill out our volunteer interest form we can contact you when new volunteers are needed. You can find that form at To be put on our list for future volunteer needs, please fill out our volunteer interest form at https://www.hssv.org/volunteer/#volunteerform

    1. Hi Karen,

      Our pet surrender services are temporarily suspended. Sorry for any inconvenience.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  7. Hi, I notice most responses are to be advised “as soon as possible” which is understandable as things are changing by the day. How will be advised of any updates? Is there a site we can plug in our email address or do we keep checking back on this website? Thank you Alexandra (and team) for keeping us updated 😀🐾🙏

    1. Hi there! We will post on this page (you can bookmark it if you’d like, but we’ll also keep a link to it on our homepage for now) as well as on our social media platforms and via email. If you’d like to follow us on social, you can do so on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. To sign up for email, fill out the form at https://www.hssv.org/#newssignuphome.

    1. Hi Jenna,

      If you have an emergency medical surrender, please reach out to our intake team at 408-262-2133 x110. Thanks!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  8. I just filled out your foster application and it looked like you only were looking for fosters for dogs and cats. I submitted information letting you know that I am available to foster domesticated rats that you may have for adoption. I put more information on my application.

  9. Hi,
    We stopped by the Petco in Sunnyvale yesterday to meet a cat (I think his name was Dmitri), but there was a note that all of the pet are not at HSSV. We will be happy to foster him or any other cat if there is a need (I submitted a form too).
    Looking forward to hearing from you!
    Best,
    Valeriya

    1. Hi there,

      Yes, all our locations are currently closed for adoption. Thanks for submitting the form!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  10. Do you need foster homes for pets that are to be displaced? Since we”re home for the next few months (I’m a teacher) we could care for pets and would enjoy the company.

    Tom

    1. Hi there, thanks for reaching out! Yes, you can fill out the foster interest form in this post if you’re interested in fostering. Thanks!

    1. Hi Peter,

      Our vaccine clinics are currently closed to the public. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  11. Hello there!
    We got your phone message that our cats neuter appointment has been suspended & to go to your site to be put on the waiting list. Can you tell us where the waiting list is? Thank you!

  12. Hi! I would love to foster a kitten during this time! I live alone and am pretty lonely during this time. I have grown up with kittens and cats my entire life and would love to foster a kitten. Let me know if any are available!

  13. Would you consider adding “sponsor a pet guardian” as an alternative to people surrendering their pets for financial reasons during the Covid 19 outbreak? I know people who would be interested in helping pet guardians financially so that pets can stay with their families.

  14. I have lost my lease, have reduced income and new landlord won’t allow pets.
    Sadly, we are forced to surrender our 2 dogs! 4 year old catahoula mix and 5 year old border collie mix. Both spayed females, house and kennel trained. Can someone help by fostering them until the humane society can accept them?

    1. Hi Alejandro, we are so sorry to hear about your situation. If you need help with more options, please reach out to us at 408-262-2133 x110.

  15. Is the pet pantry still open? I usually go towards the end of the month to pick up food for my feral colony. I can’t afford to buy them food, but can’t let them go hungry either.

    1. Hi there,

      Yes, Pet Pantry is still open. If you’d like to reach out to someone directly, please contact our intake department at 408-262-2133 x110.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  16. I submitted my name to foster through the Humane Society if they’re willing to help match folks up for you. I had 2 border collie mixes myself so I know the high energy well.

    1. Hi there,

      We are Humane Society Silicon Valley, so if you submitted your info through this form: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5508265/New-Foster-Interest, that’s us. 🙂

      We are currently in the process of reviewing the more than 1,000 submissions we received and getting back to people. This process may take us some time, so thank you for your patience and support!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  17. Hello!
    I would really love to foster a dog/puppy that gets along with small dogs (I currently have two of my own). I filled out the survey to be put on the foster interest list, but I was wondering if I had to attend the Canine Foster Onboarding Event, as well.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi there,

      We are not currently holding onboarding sessions, so filling out the form is enough. We have received over 1,000 submissions to our foster interest list this week, so it will take us some time to process and respond to everyone. Thanks for your patience and support!

    1. Hi Leslie,

      We are so sorry to hear about your dog. Unfortunately our end-of-life services are temporarily suspended. I am so sorry that we’re unable to help at this time.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

    1. Sorry for your loss. Our beloved dog, Kibouunki, recently passed away before the Shelter in Place. Our vet referred us to Animal Memorial Service in Gilroy. We had a private memorial for him, and were able to say our goodbyes. We opted for water cremation and a customized earn.

  18. Hi Alejandro, Have you found a new home or foster home for your two dogs? Let me know if you are still looking. Would love to help if we can. We have a dog and cat at home, but were looking into foster opportunities to help right now.

  19. Hello,

    I just wanted to check to see if you are still in need of clean towels and blankets, and if it is ok to drop them off at your location still?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi there, thanks so much for thinking of us! Towels and blankets can be dropped off in the bins outside our intake lobby (building to the far left) at our Milpitas Animal Community Center. Thank you!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  20. We have been trying to reach out so we can foster a dog during the shut down. Is that possible?

    1. Hi there! The link for our foster interest form is at the top of this post (and here: https://www.hssv.org/new-foster-questionnaire/). Please note that we have received over 2,000 submissions since the beginning of shelter in place, and it will take us time to process the submissions and get back to everyone. Thanks for your patience and support!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  21. Hi, is there any way for us to adopt dogs still or is that completely suspended? For those of us working from home, this is the best time to bring home a pet and give them our undivided attention as they acclimate to their new home.

    1. Hi there, our adoptions program is temporarily suspended. When that changes, we’ll provide updates on this page. Thanks!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  22. I have a very ill dog who is 16.5 yrs old with chronic bronchitis and sadly needs to be put at rest. Are the euthanasia services open while the shelter in place mandate is on?

    1. Hi Mary Jane, we are so so sorry to hear about your dog. Unfortunately our euthanasia services are temporarily suspended. It looks like Malley (comment below) has a suggestion for at-home euthanasia that you might be able to look into. Sorry we couldn’t be of more help!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  23. Hello, with the virtual adoption setup, do we get to physically meet the furball we are interested in adopting or does it all have to be done over a video chat? Thanks!

    1. Hi Izzy,

      Most of the process is done through video chat. We are allowing a brief, socially distant meet and greet at our Animal Community Center if you are adopting a dog, but in general our new procedures are intended to keep both staff and adopters safe during pick up. Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  24. Hi Alexandra,

    Thanks for your quick response. Could you please expand on “brief, socially distant meet and greet”? Does this mean, we will not be allowed to touch or pet the animal we are interested in adopting? My husband has not had pets before and I really wanted him to interact with the dog before we brought him/her home to make sure that the dog and my husband are comfortable with each other. Thanks!

    1. Hi Izzy,

      If the dog is an adult, we’ll let you into one of our outdoor dog pods and you’ll have a few minutes to interact with the dog. You will be allowed to pet the dog, etc. I hope that makes more sense!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

    1. We unfortunately do not currently have a safe area for puppy meet and greets, so puppies are handed off safely using a crate.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

    1. Hi Tiya,

      We’re so sorry for the wait. We’re still trying to match up foster families and their preferences with our current needs and the needs of our rescue partners, and will be providing an update as soon as we can.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  25. Hi Alexandra,

    We filled out the foster care form 2-3 weeks back. I understand that you received many applications and that it takes time to process it. Are you able to tell us how far are you in terms of processing the forms (by date)? My daughter can not wait, she is very eager to hear back (she can really use a companion animal right now, and we have extra time to care for the dog). Many Thanks!

    1. Hi there,

      We’re sorry you’ve been waiting so long. We’ve been matching new fosters with animals based on their preferences and whether they match our current needs, not going by date submitted. Sorry about that!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  26. Our friends lost their dog today. Do you have any recommendations for support services during these unprecedented times? Especially for grieving?

  27. Hi Alexandra,

    I wanted to create a fundraiser and donate all proceeds to Humane Society Silicon Valley’s COVID-19 relief. But I wanted to make sure the money raised would go directly to the local Silicon Valley’s COVID-19 relief. Please contact me so we could discuss any further steps that need to be taken. I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Rya,

      That’s amazing, thank you so much! If you’re looking for an easy way to hold an online fundraiser, Facebook is a great place to start – there are no processing fees for Facebook fundraisers held on behalf of nonprofits, so we’ll receive the total amount. If you have any other questions or need further assistance, please reach out to our donor team! You can email them at donations@hssv.org.

      Thank you again, we so appreciate your support, especially now.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

    1. Hi there, apologies for my delay in response!

      We don’t have a specific COVID relief fund. Donations made right now will help us 1) offset the significant revenue we’ve lost as a result of COVID (donations, cancellation of our major annual fundraising event, program fees) and 2) adapt to the changing times and sustain our work. We’ve had to make a couple major shifts in our operations in response to COVID. One is that we’re taking in many more animals with medical issues, and another is that we’ve moved some of our programs (like our adoptions program) to virtual processes.

      Your fundraiser will help us ensure that we can continue to care for the animals that need us most and make the necessary shifts in our processes that will allow us to continue that work.

      Thank you so much!

    1. We do! You can drop them off in the bins outside our Intake lobby (building to the far left). Thank you so much!

      Yes, TNR is still temporarily suspended. We will provide an update as soon as we are able to.

    1. Hi Gary,

      Thanks for reaching out! We don’t currently have a timeframe for reopening our vaccine clinic. When we have more updates, we’ll post them here. Thanks!

  28. Hey! Earlier this morning we saw Peter the small crossbreed puppy (the golden one) and we are interested in adopting him! We understand that these are difficult times, and that most of your services are currently closed. But, (if you are willing to of course) we would love to work something out to give Peter a loving forever home! Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Hailey,

      Thanks for reaching out! Our dog adoption appointment form is currently paused while we work through our current list and schedule/hold appointments for those who have already signed up. We anticipate reopening the list in mid-June. Fore more information and updates, please visit hssv.org/adopt

  29. We had a feral cat give birth to 4 kittens on our property during Covid….they are about 5 or 6 weeks old. Two have died and the mother has left. One has a severe eye infection and they obviously need to be spayed/neutered. Shots etc….can anyone help us? We love in Gilroy, in the Santa Clara county, we have a trap and are going to catch them. Please call me back to see where we could go for help!

    415-999-2298 sandy Moller

  30. Sandy,
    For eye infection get terramycin on amazon and apply to eyes 3-4 times a day. You can try a vet that participate in the tnr program. Last time I paid was $25 they do spay and neuter and flea treatment too.

    1. Hi there – our spay/neuter clinic is still paused. When we reopen, we will announce it here!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  31. Is there any place where cats can get fixed and get shots? We found a cat on the streets we want to take in, which we think may be female, and need to get her spayed and vaccinated ASAP as to not affect our other cats. Is there anywhere we can go??

    1. Hi there, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately our spay/neuter and vaccine clinics are still closed. We will provide an update here as soon as we are able to.

      -Alexandra

    1. Hi David,

      Unfortunately our vaccine clinic is still temporarily closed. When we have an update, we will post it here. Sorry about that!

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  32. Regarding TNR – I’m very confused as to why veterinarians can remain open and do client contactless work, but HSSV and San Jose Animals Services cannot. And I’ve been informed by one vet clinic that the funding for the spay/neuter that they were doing in San Jose came to an end July 1st. Would be great if explanations and help/advice could be (more plainly) posted on your website, please. Or am I the only one having problem getting help for ferals?

    1. Hi there, unfortunately we don’t. As soon as we have an update, we’ll post it here.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  33. We adopted a male kitten back in May & we were trying to schedule his neutering surgery since it wasn’t an option at the time. Any updates since I thought that was part of the adoption fee?

    1. Hi there! Our team will reach out to you as soon as we have an available appointment. Thanks for your patience!

    1. Hi there, unfortunately we don’t. As soon as we have an update, we’ll post it here.

      -Alexandra
      HSSV Staff

  34. Hi,

    We were originally scheduled for neuter/spay appointment back in April. I was told humane society would open back up for these types of services in August. Is there a date when the medical center would be open this month? Appreciate all the staff for their service of the animals in your care.

  35. Hi, I have been trying to book a spray appointment for my kitten. On the website it says to check back in August, but I don’t think they are open yet. Any updates on when I should check back? Thanks!

  36. Hello, I was wondering if only the free spay/neuter service is available or if ALL your spay/neuter services are available? I tried calling but it said that the service has been suspended, however on your website it says it is available. I have a 5 month old puppy and I live in Gilroy, and don’t qualify for the free spay service.

    1. Hi there – only our free spay/neuter program is available at this time. Sorry about that! When our other services reopen, we’ll post it here.

  37. Hi,
    Any idea when the TNR program will resume? What about kittens? There is a feral family with kittens near me (Sunnyvale) and maybe the kittens can be tamed rather than released. What are the options for them? They look healthy and adorable.

  38. Hello, I want to know if you are taking appointment and/or wait list for the spay/neuter service? I know a lot of people has been asking. Just wanted to know if can provide more info at this time, and/or how the spay/neuter service will be like once it is resume?

  39. HI. Is your TNR program up and running yet? I have some ferals that need to be fixed. Would you accept stray kittens?

  40. I made an appointment on September 17th to get my kitten spayed this Wednesday, September 30th. I have not received any confirmation or information; can you confirm the surgery will still take place?
