During the year ended June 30, 2021, the Organization cared for 1,463 cats, 1,182 dogs, and 314 other animals.

Overall, the Organization’s live release rate for the year ended June 30, 2021 was 92%.

The Organization runs the Second Chance Program which receives animals from other shelters and animal welfare agencies in Oregon, California, and beyond, giving them a second chance at finding a loving home when time and resources have run out at their shelter. During the year ended June 30, 2021, 180 animals were cared for through this program.

Population(s) Served

The Organization has an on-site veterinary medical clinic that performs spay/neuter services, essential surgeries, and a trap/neuter/return program.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Greenhill Humane Society envisions a world in which all animals are treated with compassion and respect. We are working towards this vision by providing care and shelter for animals, support and resources for people, and education to promote the humane treatment of animals. Our strategic priorities over the next three years are designed to strengthen and grow our programs to meet the community's needs while at the same time strengthening our organization and team in order to ensure long-term sustainability.

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 families; 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 food bank; on-site volunteer opportunities; foster care and humane education.

Greenhill Humane Society has 45 paid staff, approximately 350 monthly volunteers, and over 100 foster families that help provide care and resources to both animals and the people who care for animals. We are a leading animal welfare organization in the Northwest and consistently voted a top-rated charity locally.

Greenhill Humane Society is a life-saving shelter in which animals are provided with any necessary medical and behavioral care as well as daily enrichment. No animals are euthanized due to space or time constraints. In 2020 we completed construction on a state-of-the-art sheltering facility and veterinary center. We are continuing to expand our programs in areas that address low-income pet care-givers in order to continue to improve the overall health of our community.
