Volunteer Opportunities

Do you have love to spare?

Volunteers are the foundation of Greenhill Humane Society, and animal enthusiasts just like you make up our volunteer force. Each month, over 350 volunteers from Lane and surrounding counties donate their time to helping the animals at our Green Hill Road and 1st Avenue Shelters. Without our volunteers, Greenhill could not provide its current high level of service to the animals and people of our community.

All of our volunteers share three things:
you can be a cattery volunteer!
1) Compassion and responsibility for all animals
2) Consistency and reliability to help us care for our animals
3) Commitment to reducing animal overpopulation  

We have exciting volunteer opportunities available at both of our shelter locations 7-days a week. Our shelters are located at:

Greenhill Humane Society - 88530 Green Hill Road, Eugene, OR 97402

1st Avenue Shelter -3970 W 1st Avenue, Eugene, OR 97402 

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. (If you would like to become a foster parent, please complete the online foster care application on the foster care page).


Individuals who are required to complete court-mandated community service hours can apply to complete their service hours at Greenhill Humane Society or the 1st Avenue Shelter through our Court-Mandated Community Service Program. Please contact 541-689-1503 ext. 114 for more information on how to apply. Individuals required to complete court-mandated community service program should not complete the online volunteer application.   For more information about volunteering with Greenhill or if you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail us at 541-689-1503 ext. 114 or volunteer@green-hill.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

Volunteer Spotlight
July 2015
Jeannie Walker

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!
