Do you have love to spare?
All of our volunteers share three things:
We have exciting volunteer opportunties available at both of our shelter locations 7-days a week. To learn more about available volunteer positions, please click here.
In order to provide the best possible care for our animals, volunteers are asked to commit to volunteering for one 2-hour shift per week for a minimum of 3 or 6 months. 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.
To get started as a Greenhill volunteer, please complete our online volunteer application by clicking here. Once we have received your application, we will contact you to schedule you for an upcoming New Volunteer Meeting & Orientation Session (please check your e-mail for more information on signing up for a session). Please complete a separate application for all individuals who will be volunteering.

Since volunteer Carol Carver can’t have pets right now, the 1st Avenue Cattery is the next best thing.
“Volunteering at 1st Avenue gives me my cat fix. I also want to support the wonderful work that is being done at the shelter. I enjoy working with the staff and other volunteers,” she said.
A regular cattery cleaner, Carol takes her duties pretty seriously - and it’s not just the cleaning she knows is important. She also considers it her job “dispensing encouragement and attention” to the cats.
“I am learning how much work and dedication it takes to care for and keep healthy all the animals that do not have loving homes,” she said.
When not cheering up her feline friends at 1st Avenue, Carol also volunteers as a trail guide at Mt. Pisgah Arboretum. She loves to garden and grows as much of her own food as she possibly can. She is learning to play bridge and also sings with the Women’s Choral Society.
“Anything to keep the brain active,” she said.
Originally from back East, Carol moved to Eugene to be close to family. Despite the cloud cover, she is enjoying the area thanks to the friends and activities she has taken on since relocating. Being close to her son isn’t a bad thing either!
