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!
As a member of the community I dream of a world where all companion animals have a loving, safe home and where pet over-population is prevented through spay/neuter. As an individual I used to wonder - how can I contribute to making this a reality? I adopted from Greenhill and became a volunteer board member because I saw that Greenhill staff, volunteers, and supporters are a collective group working to achieve this vision. I continue to support Greenhill because I believe they are succeeding in making a difference!
Greenhill Humane Society is a fantastic organization that works tirelessly to improve the lives of animals in Lane County. On noting but dedication and effort, Greenhill has been able to put animals first and improve the lives of many cats, dogs, and other small animals in the area. Even when the economy is down, Greenhill has found a way to keep its adoption rate high and provide great on-site care for the shelter animals still looking for their forever home.
Greenhill Humane is an organization that has quietly lead a change in our community to improve the welfare of our companion and outdoor animals. It is all about the animals, whether in Greenhill's care or elsewhere, for the staff at GHS. Keep up the good work!
Greenhill is a fantastic organization, which is why I adopted my dog, Simon, from the shelter nearly 4 years ago. Since that time, I've joined the board and volunteer LOTS of my time to this wonderful organization. They are dedicated to increasing spay/neuter rates in the area, helping to reduce animal overpopulation in the area. They have hired a full-time staff vet, who serves as an invaluable resource to Greenhill shelter animals as well as the animal welfare community in general. They have incredibly high "live release rates," meaning nearly all of the animals who come through the shelter find homes. They are organized and always striving to improve. I am proud to serve on the board of this fantastic organization.
As a board member and volunteer with Greenhill for the last several years, I have seen first hand the committment Greenhill's staff and its voluteers have to serving this community and its animals. Greenhill is constantly striving to improve itself and have a greater positive impact on animal welfare in the community.
As a Board Member, I see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make the most of the budget and continue to improve the organization, and I have been continually impressed with the passion for animal welfare shown by everyone involved. The staff and volunteers at Greenhill are incredibly dedicated to making the lives of the animals in their care as pleasant as possible before they find their forever homes. Greenhill's administration is committed to expanding and improving its services by improving medical care and updating their facilities when their budget allows to better serve the animals. Greenhill's management works very hard to try to coordinate services with other animal care organizations in our region to care for the animal population as efficiently and effectively as possible. They also frequently take animals in from "high kill" shelters - even as far away as Los Angeles, to save the animals from being euthanized. Greenhill is generally regarded as a fantastic asset to Lane County. I am proud to represent Greenhill in our community and I love all the positive feedback I hear when I mention the shelter. Unfortunately, there are some people with serious misconceptions about Greenhill, who are committed to trying to damage its reputation. This negativity helps no one - least of all the animals we are trying to save. I encourage anyone interested in Greenhill to visit the shelter and see its great work firsthand!
