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 adoptionsreuniting lost animals with their familiesdisaster response; crisis care boarding in situations of domestic violence, medical emergencies, and other crisis situations; spay/neuter for free roaming, un-owned community cats; a pet pantryon-site volunteer opportunities; foster care and humane education.

Last year, we had 5356 total shelter and clinic intakes. We made 2581 adoptions into loving homes and had 966 pet reunions for animals. In addition, we provided 1187 cat spay/neuter surgeries to assist cat caregivers in reducing feral cat over-population.

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.
