Find a Home for Your Pet

Find a New Home for Your Pet Through Greenhill
 We accept owner-surrendered animals by appointment. If you would like Greenhill Humane Society to help find a new home for your pet, follow these steps:
  • Step 1: Call the Receiving Department to discuss surrendering your pet.  We can be reached at (541) 689-1503 ext. 117. 
  • Step 2: Fill Out a Personality Profile for your pet and send us your pet’s veterinary records.

The Receiving Department will conduct a brief phone interview with you prior to scheduling an appointment. We will also need to review your pet’s completed Personality Profile and veterinary records before scheduling your appointment so we can determine if we are able to assist in finding your pet a new home. You can submit the Personality Profile by completing it online, or send the Profile and vet records to us via email at receiving@green-hill.org, fax to 541.689.5261, postal mail or hand delivery.

  • Step 3: Attend your scheduled appointment. At your appointment, our trained staff will evaluate your pet to ensure they are a good candidate for adoption through our shelter. If so, we will take the pet into our care and provide for any medical or behavioral needs prior to their adoption.

Receiving Fees
Greenhill Humane Society does not charge receiving fees for surrendered pets.
Please note that it costs us over $350 on average to provide care for each dog or cat during their stay at Greenhill. We will gladly accept donations to go toward the care of your pet during their stay with us.

During Your Pet’s Stay
During your pet’s time at Greenhill Humane Society, we will provide him/her with:
  • Any necessary vaccinations
  • Any necessary surgeries, including spay/neuter
  • Dental cleaning, if necessary
  • Flea control
  • Food, including a special diet (if necessary)
  • Medical and behavioral evaluations
  • Behavioral training
  • Lots of love and TLC!

Tips for Getting Your Pet Adopted
You can help your pet get adopted more quickly by having them treated for fleas and worms, having them up to date on vaccines (please bring proof with you), bathed and well-groomed, as well as having them spayed or neutered.
Will my pet get a good home?
Pets at Greenhill Humane Society receive excellent care from our trained staff and volunteers. We do not place any time limits on an animal’s stay: a pet may stay at our shelter for days, weeks, or months, until we find them a new home. Our adoption process includes an application and individual counseling to make sure we find great matches for pets in our care.
We always welcome follow up calls. You may call us at any time during your pet’s time here and we will be glad to give you an update.
Stray Animals
The Greenhill shelter location does not accept stray pets. Please contact our First Avenue Shelter location at 541-844-1777 if you have found a stray animal.
