About Greenhill Humane Society
Greenhill Humane Society is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of donors and volunteers in Eugene, Springfield, Veneta and throughout Lane County.
Your participation in Bark in the Park allows us to shelter and care for approximately 3,600 animals that come to us for help each year. With your help, we provide medical and behavioral care in order to transition homeless companion animals into new loving homes. We spay & neuter over 2,300 animals each year; many of the surgeries are provided at low or no cost to low-income caregivers. With your help, we are a resource to this community, providing humane education, fielding over 20,000 pet related calls each year, and offering volunteer and mentorship opportunities.
