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.

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.

It all started last summer when Tim Larkin’s best friend’s daughter needed someone to accompany her while volunteering. Tim stepped in and since joining the volunteer team at Greenhill he has dog walked, picked up donations around town and helped at Ducks Love Dogs, the Greenhill Open House and hours of behind-the-scenes work gearing up for Art for Animals, in addition to his day-of shift.
“I really enjoy helping the animals, working and meeting people at events and meeting and working with my fellow volunteers,” he said. “One of the things I have learned while helping at Greenhill is how much compassion the employees and volunteers of 1st Avenue and Greenhill have for all the animals and the support of the two locations and what they stand for in our community.”
From the Rotary Club, Eugene/Springfield Oregon Club, Duck Athletic Fund Drive, Seniors on Patrol with the Eugene Police, and more Tim is no stranger to altruistic pursuits. Thankfully Greenhill has now joined the list to receive some of his time and energy.
“It has been such an honor to be a volunteer at Greenhill. One of the best things I have done since retiring in 2011. My goal now that I am retired is to support our community and Greenhill is an awesome way to do that as the animals need our help.”
Tim grew up in Oregon, was drafted into the army for two years and retired from Bigfoot Beverages after 33 years of work. His wife, Laura, is still employed with the company. Together they have 4 children, a cat (adopted from Greenhill) and a dog. He enjoys golfing and travel, home projects and spoiling his grandkids and animals.
