Volunteers between the ages of 12-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to volunteer on-site but can find lots of fun ways to help our animals by visiting our Cub's Corner page.

Greenhill's Volunteer and Foster Newsletter
Jeannie has been volunteering at the 1st Avenue Shelter in the front office since 2014 and is a dedicated and valuable volunteer, doing her part to reunite owners and their furry friends. “My duties in this position are mainly answering the phone and I am always on Craigslist looking for families who may be looking for their lost pet. It is always very rewarding when we can reunite families with their lost/beloved pets!” said Jeannie.
Jeannie moved to Oregon in 1986 and has two daughters as well as 2 dogs, a lab and a chiweenie. She enjoys gardening, reading and fly fishing. Although Jeannie does not currently volunteer for any other organizations in town due to her busy schedule, she seizes opportunities to be of service to animals in the community on her own time. Jeannie said that she carries a big box of zip lock bags filled with dog food and bottled water in her car to give to homeless people who have dogs.
When asked, Jeannie said that her favorite aspect of volunteering at 1st Avenue is working with the wonderful staff. “Everyone there is passionate about saving animals' lives, reuniting them with their families and adopting out the animals to loving homes. You are all awesome and pure joy to work with!”
Thank you Jeannie for your wonderful service to 1st Avenue and your community!
