Your Talent Can Help Us Save Lives!
Greenhill Humane Society announces “Art for Animals”, a live and silent art auction to support lost and homeless pets in our community.

Please consider donating an original work of art to Greenhill Humane Society’s 10th Annual Art for Animals Silent and Live Auction, presented by Ninkasi Brewing Company on Friday, November 10th, at Ninkasi’s Administrative Building, located at 155 Blair Blvd.

All mediums are welcome, including but not limited to painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, glass, jewelry and fiber arts. Artwork is enjoyed and purchased by a diverse group of collectors, art enthusiasts and animal supporters. Funds raised at the auction ensure that Greenhill can continue to provide safe shelter, medical care, healthy food, behavior training and adoption services for thousands of pets in need each year.

Preview Exhibit
Prior to the November 10th Art for Animals auction, we will feature selected art in an “AFA Preview Exhibit” at the Ninkasi Tasting Room starting September 28th and the Oregon Wine L.A.B. starting October 1st. This exposure will provide increased publicity to donating artists and an additional opportunity for community members to enjoy the diverse collection of art generously donated by talented local artists. Please note: Art displayed during the preview exhibit will be available for purchase during the November 10th Art for Animals Auction.

If the donation is not collected by that date, Greenhill Humane Society may use the artwork for future events. Greenhill cannot cover shipping expenses, but if requested, will assist in making shipping arrangements.  Greenhill Humane Society staff and volunteers will handle all artwork professionally, with respect to care; however, Greenhill will not be responsible for breakage, theft or loss.

Artists are asked to provide Greenhill with an estimated fair market value for each donated piece.  Greenhill will not have the artwork appraised, but may ask an artist to provide documentation of value for similar work sold.

Jurors will use specific criteria when voting, including originality, imagination, invention, marketability, audience appeal and transportability.

About Greenhill
Located in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the place to heal and nurture homeless, neglected or abused animals is at Greenhill Humane Society. Greenhill operates two shelters in Eugene, Oregon. 1st Avenue Shelter cares for stray and abandoned animals, reunites lost pets with their families, and provides adoption services for pets who need new families. Greenhill’s shelter cares for owner-surrendered pets and animals transferred from over-crowded shelters along the West Coast. In both locations, animals are lovingly provided with safe shelter, high quality food, medical care, behavior training and lots of TLC. Greenhill has been caring for homeless animals for over 70 years and is largely funded through individual donations, both monetary and in-kind. Thanks to the caring support of donors and artists like you, we provide a number of vital programs and services, not only for pets, but also to benefit the people who love them. Greenhill serves approximately 3,000 animals each year and never puts a time limit on how long an animal can stay in our care.
