My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Greenhill Humane Society, Eugene, OR, USA
If I could give this "shelter" less than one star I would. Greenhill tests dogs for "aggression" by throwing keys in their kennel and "testing" by seeing if the dog tears up either a dog or cat shaped stuffed animal. If the dog acts like a normal dog and plays with or tears up the cat shaped stuffed animal, Greenhill says that dog is cat aggressive. This is pure nonsense and many dogs have been labeled using this ridiculous method, that is not supported by any sane professional. Since being called on this asinine practice, Greenhill denies they do this. However, we have community members who are willing to testify this is what they were told. Volunteers know this as well. It is bizarre, unprofessional and downright deadly for the animals in Greenhill's "care"
Greenhill has stated that if the community that supports them calls in concerned about an animal, they deem that harassment. They want your money, but do not want to be bothered by questions, or be transparent or accountable.
No doubt there will be posts on here by Greenhill claiming that those who support No Kill Lane County are crazy, but we aren't the ones testing for aggression by seeing if a dog plays with a stuffed animal, are we? There are heinous abuses that go on behind the scenes at Greenhill and we can prove it.
Greenhill's Executive Director and his girlfriend the Ops Manager have been caught in lie after lie after lie, and we can prove that too! (Conflict of interest and a blatant violation of Greenhill's own policies)
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Fire all the management including the vet that withholds treatment from animals causing suffering. See Greenhill's medical records here: http://www.nokilllanecounty.org/2013/05/violation-of-state-statute-greenhills.html The Board of directors looks the other way while Greenhill's management violate their own personnel policies. They need to go.
