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 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 cats; on-site volunteer opportunities and humane education. We envision a community in which all companion animals have loving homes and are treated with compassion and respect. Last year, we helped reunite or find new loving homes for over 3,000 animals. In addition, we provided over 1,100 free cat spay/neuter surgeries to assist cat caregivers in reducing feral cat over-population. Our humane education program reached more than 21,000 children and adults. 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.
