Our Story

Greenhill Humane Society has been caring for animals in Lane County since 1944. We operate the only animal shelter within the Eugene/Springfield area.  Our programs include animal adoptions;  reuniting lost animals with their familiescrisis care boarding in situations of domestic violence, medical emergencies, and other crisis situations; spay/neuter for free roaming, un-owned community cats; a pet food bankon-site volunteer opportunities; foster care and humane education.

Last year, we helped reunite or find new loving homes for 3,630 animals. In addition, we provided 1,341 cat spay/neuter surgeries to assist cat caregivers in reducing feral cat over-population.  Our humane education program reached more than 12,179 children and adults.

Greenhill is a private non-profit and relies on donations for a majority of its budget. The generosity of our local community enables us to provide a high level of care to lost, abandoned, and neglected animals while at the same time helping pet owners in need.
