Greenhill Humane Society partners with Lane County Animal Services and Lane Co Sherriff to Rescue over 90 Animals from Severe Neglect

EUGENE, OREGON – (June 4, 2024) Greenhill Humane Society, a leading animal welfare organization in the Eugene community, has worked with Lane County Animal Services and Lane Co Sherriff to Rescue over 90 Animals from a severe neglect situation, providing them with the care and support they desperately need.

The rescue operation took place on Monday, June 3, near Dorena, Oregon. Over 90 animals were removed, including dogs, horses, cattle, parrots, and various poultry, living in deplorable conditions without adequate food, water, or medical care. Four dogs and one cat were transported directly from the Dorena property to Greenhill to receive immediate care.

“The situation these animals were found in was heartbreaking,” said Cary Lieberman, Executive Director of Greenhill Humane Society. “The whole team worked to ensure each animal was safely removed and transported to safety, where they are now receiving the medical attention, nourishment, and compassion they need to recover.”

The cat and dogs are currently being evaluated by Greenhill’s veterinary team with the ultimate goal of finding them loving, forever homes.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support of our community and the collaboration of our partners in this rescue effort,” added Lieberman. “With the help of our dedicated staff, volunteers, and the generous support of our community, we are optimistic about the future for these companion animals.”

Greenhill Humane Society is calling on the community for assistance in this critical time. Donations are needed to cover the costs of medical treatments, food, and shelter for the rescued animals. Additionally, the organization is seeking volunteers to assist with daily care and potential foster families to provide temporary homes.
