Exciting Changes Happening!

We are thrilled to announce that effective Monday, July 1, 2019, all animals, staff, volunteers and shelter operations of 1st Avenue Shelter will move to the Greenhill Humane Society location.  Very soon, we’ll all be together, fully operational at one location, sharing our new facility with the community!

On July 1, the Greenhill shelter will be open to the public 7 days a week, 11 am to 6 pm.  In addition, we will remain open on previously closed holidays such as the 4th of July and Labor Day.  Also beginning July 1, all stray animals found in Lane County should be brought to Greenhill and owners will be able to reclaim their lost pets with ease at the Greenhill location.  All animals available for adoption will be located at Greenhill as well.  

It is truly amazing how far we’ve come since this project first broke ground just one year ago. On behalf of all the animals that will one day be helped within these new walls, we can’t thank you enough. Together, we will be able to provide better care to more animals.  We will be able to help more people because of your support during this growth.  Lives will be changed, saved, and made better, all because of you and the support you provide to Greenhill.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. We are excited to be moving into our new spaces soon and equally excited about the next phase – a state-of-the-art veterinary medical clinic. This clinic will enable us to provide critical care to animals in need. It will enable us to care for more animals and address a wider range of medical issues. This is a vital component of the life-saving work that we do for the animals and for the community as a whole.

Please, invite everyone you know to visit Greenhill and encourage them to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime project.  As a volunteer, foster, donor, or adopter, everyone plays an integral part in helping us build a more humane community! 

On behalf of the animals, thank you!
