Greenhill’s Community Outreach staff visits public and private schools & civic groups throughout the Eugene & Springfield area to give humane education presentations. Focusing on elementary through high school, our educators give age-specific presentations on topics including safety around animals, pet care, and the importance of spaying or neutering your pet. We also highlight Greenhill programs, animal-related careers, use of service dogs, and animal welfare issues. Most importantly, our education programs strive to establish a sense of responsibility with our youngest generation in hopes of making the world a better, more humane place.

Children’s Birthday Parties
One of the benefits of having your child’s birthday party at the animal shelter is that children learn compassion for animals and responsibility for their community. Birthday parties at Greenhill last approximately 2 hours and include a 30-minute tour of the shelter for educational animal time.
You can learn more about our Birthday Party Guidelines and Birthday Party request form.
