I am honored to say that I have been a foster parent for cats at the Greenhill Humane Society for a little more than 2 years. During that time, I have gotten to know many members of the Greenhill staff. I have also had the pleasure of caring for several cats that have been exposed to Feline Leukemia. Normally, these cats would have to be "put down", even though they test negetive for this disease. However, Greenhill finds these cats foster homes for a 3 month quarantine period. During this time, the cats are given a monthly blood test and other care. If the cats test negative for the Feline Leukemia at the end of the quarantine period, they are then put up for adoption. In my case, all of my foster cats have passed their quarantine period and have been quickly and successfully adopted. I can testify that all of the staff members at the Greenhill Humane Society always put the best interests of their animal charges ahead of all else. I can honestly say that "at the Greenhill Humane Society, ...... WE CARE!"

I really can't think of anything that I would do to change it. Greenhill is well organized and if anything, its services should be expanded.

I am so impressed with the absolute dedication by all the people involved with Greenhill Humane Society, both staff and volunteers, toward bettering the welfare of homeless dogs, cats and small animals. As for my personal experience as a volunteer at Greenhill, I have always been treated with great warmth and appreciation for my help.

The staff is a wonderful, caring group that is determined to help people find the perfect pet for them. They won't stop until every pet that comes in through the door has a loving home. They helped me find my two fantastic cats.

Greenhill Humane Society, in Eugene, Oregon, is great non-profit humane organization providing shelter, fostering, adoption, and neuter-spaying services. We have had the great pleasure with working with the highly committed staff of both employees and volunteers when we foster kittens until they are ready to be put up for adoption. We can not overstate our appreciation and admiration for the kind, humane, and compassionate services Greenhill provides for our local community and the animals they rescue and provide loving homes for.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build larger living spaces for the animals it shelters, allowing more animals to be rescued and adopted. Also more education of the importance of getting people to spay/neuter.

Greenhill does so much with so little. The website is easy to navigate, so lots of people get engaged and stay connected. Their events are fun for 4-leggeds and their 2-leggeds.

Upon first volunteering at Greenhill Humane Society, I was suprised by the love of animals that drove each employee and volunteer. Everyone was filled with this intense care for the lives of the animals that was really inspiring. Greenhill is a great place, and it leaves a great impression on me every time I leave it!

Greenhill Humane Society is a wonderful nonprofit organization. They help many animals find good homes. They also help to stop animal overpopulation by spaying and neutering all of their animals. What I have said about Greenhill may sound like any ordinary humane society, but Greenhill is no ordinary humane society. All of the animals there are very happy. Greenhill's staff and volunteers are very friendly and helpful. I think Greenhill is a great humane society. If you are looking for a new pet, come to Greenhill and see why it is a truly wonderful organization.

I was so surprised by how much Greenhill does. In addition to people who come to adopt pets, there are so many phone calls and people with questions about how to help their animals. Everyone at the shelter really cares about the animals and the people who call or come in with questions.

I have always been an animal lover but couldn't always donate as much financially as I would've liked. I see being a Board Member as another way to contribute. While I've always heard great things about Greenhill, never could I have imagined how wonderfully managed this facility would be. Everyone involved (staff, volunteers, board members, etc.) is top notch. I couldn't imagine a better non-profit to be a part of. Greenhill provides such a valuable community service and they do it incredibly. Kudos to Greenhill!

I began fostering for Greenhill in 2004. The goal is to save lives and to match animal to adopting parent or parents. I have had extensive contact with the category staff and somewhat less contact with the veterinarian. Everyone is knowledgeable and committed to the health and welfare of the animal, and staff are visibly upset at those infrequent times when the cat has to be euthanized because the cat tested positive for feline leukemia (for examples). I fostered one cat that was in the late stages of kidney failure. The staff allowed me to continue fostering him as long as possible, and then provided a quick and peaceful end to his life when the time came. For the 6 or so months the cat was in my care, Greenhill provided veterinary services and medicines, even though they knew the cat would never be adopted and that he would eventually be euthanized. I have also cared for an amputee (who was happily adopted) plus a cat that was so afraid of humans that he hid from me for the first 4 weeks he was in my care (and has since been adopted!). In both cases, Greenhill provided all of the medical care and provided all of the medical supplies required. I only had to provide the housing and food (although Greenhill will provide special foods as needed). Recently I have begun fostering cats that come from domestic-violence homes. This is an invaluable service to the community, one I very much like participating in. Foster parents are encouraged to observe and report any problems the animal seems to have as soon as possible, and are given 24/7 access to staff, including the staff veterinarian. The back-up provided to a foster parent is tremendous. Greenhill is 100 percent supported by community donations. This alone makes it clear how much the community values its contributions. It has been in operation since 1944, and, during the time I have been working with Greenhill, it has continued to look for ways to enhance its services and to do as much as it can for the animals that come into its care.
