The vision of Greenhill Humane Society, SPCA (Eugene, Oregon) <http://www.green-hill.org> is "a community in which all companion animals have loving homes and are treated with compassion and respect."
I was delighted when I discovered the connection of a high school friend to Greenhill Humane Society, and began following posts shared on social media of pets available for adoption.
A visit to Greenhill's web site revealed many of the same services offered by the humane society in my city: no time limit on how long an animal can stay at the shelter; a cadre of volunteers to help staff exercise, play with and love the animals; foster care; spay/neuter programs; partnerships with other shelters and rescue groups to find permanent homes for pets; community connections for special fundraising events, off-site adoptions; medical rehab and behavior programs; and much more. Greenhill also operates 1st Avenue Shelter in Eugene.
For the past 7 years, Greenhill has successfully saved approximately 90 percent or more of the animals who came into their care.
I'm impressed by their services and, of course, have fallen in love with many of the animal faces I've seen on their web site. So the name of this shelter goes into the doggie bowl for a chance to win a $100 donation from Quantum Canines.
