Review for Greenhill Humane Society, Eugene, OR, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

Greenhill Humane Society is not what is generally thought of as a humane society. They do a very good job with the animals that they accept and find homes for. I have never found an instance of mistreatment or any of the other complaints people voiced here.

But it's important to know that Green Hill is an animal exchange program, not a Humane Society. Whether or not an animal can be received there depends on many factors, and it is more in fact like an exclusive school or a country club.

I was that the shelter one day when a man came in you had a pitbull in the car. The man explain to the front receptionist that he had to surrender the dog has his wife was quite ill and they could not take care of it anymore. This man had been waiting on baby pitbull wait list for a green hill and there were two people in front of him. The staff refused to take the dog to the only had five dogs total in the shelter!The man's wife was sick and it was imperative that he find a place to take this pitbull. First Avenue shelter would not take the dog as they only takes trays, Greenhill would not take it as it wasn't his turn on your list. I wonder what did happen to the dog. If you adopt from Green Hill that's great. They deserve support and help. But the sad fact is Eugene Oregon has no Humane Society, forget to use the nation tissue, there is no where that an animal needing protection can go. It is time that we in Eugene address this need and created a shelter that indeed will respond to the needs of animals, and not to the needs of people who potentially will adopty only accept animals that are owned, and only if the animals is proved to be a doctor, if they have room, and if the animal passes various tests. Green Hill is an animal Country Club, and is great at what it does. It is not a humane society in the sense of open the accepting animals in need. While I was there at one point a man brought in a pitbull that had been on there waiting list for some time. I understand that pitbulls are a problem for all shelters, and there must be included on the number of pitbulls and pitbull mixes that any shelters can accept. However at this particular time the shelter only had 5 dogs! Most of the cages were empty. The man's wife was

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make this form usable for Androids!! it will not allow corrections and the cursor will not go to the desired.. Although this is a very hard to read review in terms of spelling and punctuation, I'm going to submit it anyway because but it is important. Green Hill is an animal Country Club. We need a real Humane Society
