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 opportunties 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
    
 
Tim Larkin
 
  
   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.
