And then everything changed

Veterinary Medical Hub
Veterinary Medical Hub

The last report we sent out through GlobalGiving about our building project was in early February. At that time we announced "the Veterinary Medical Hub is nearing completion." And then, just a few weeks later, normal life as we knew it came to a grinding halt as the world turned its attention to stopping a global pandemic.

Through it all, Greenhill continued caring for the animals. We quickly implemented increased cleaning and physical distancing protocols, and I'm happy to report that there was never a moment in which there was a gap in our critical services.

We continue to shelter and provide care for animals in need - those that are lost, abandoned, abused, or suffering through a crisis with a human family member. We continue to find new, loving homes for animals without families. And we've increased our pet food and supply bank for families with pets who are struggling financially. Thanks to donors and partner organizations, we were able to distribute over six tons of food throughout Lane County over the past two months.

And, yes, the Veterinary Medical Hub is now operational. Our veterinary team is able to perform spay / neuter and other critical surgeries in the new facility. We still have a few more finishing touches to put into place, but we are now working with the essential pieces. Thank you for helping us get here.

Over the next few months and into the coming years we anticipate an increase in the work that we do on behalf of the animals and the people connected to them. We know from past experience that challenging economic times bring hardships for both people and their pets. We also know how important pets are to us all. Pets are a comfort to us when we are scared or alone; pets are calming during stressful times; and pets teach us about the importance of compassion, caring, and love.

With your support, Greenhill will be able to provide care for pets and people in need, even as those needs increase.

Greenhill's building project that you helped support is the foundation upon which we can enter into this new phase. This project has given us greater capacity to meet the needs of this new reality, whatever the future may hold.

If you are able, please consider another gift. If you need our services, please call and know that we are here for you.

The veterinary medical hub is nearing completion.

New dog housing

In June of 2018, we broke ground on Greenhill's new animal care and shelter facilities. Thanks to you and supporters like you, that was the first step towards a new era of improved care and well-being for animals and the people connected to them. 

So far, over 1,950 individual donors have supported this vision, and I've had the pleasure of personally showing many of you what you have helped build. The animals that we care for have new, clean, open, and stress reducing spaces. Each housing area has tons of natural light and a variety of enrichment options. The animals feel calmer and are adopted to new, loving families much quicker. For animals that are brought to us to heal, we now have safe, clean, enriching housing. Animals that come to us because of abuse, neglect, or because of a crisis are treated to a calming and caring environment. Thanks to you, the physical environment now compliments the high level of compassion and care that has been provided by our staff and volunteers.

I am excited to share that the next phase is nearly complete! By April, with your continued help, we will complete construction of the state-of-the-art veterinary medical hub. 

The new veterinary medical hub will house our new surgery center that expands our surgery and recovery spaces. It will provide us with the capability to perform a wider range of surgeries including dental procedures.The hub will also add dedicated treatment and exam areas as well as separate intensive care spaces for dogs and cats. 

In short, this new medical hub will enable us to provide critical care to animals in need. It is a vital component of the life-saving work that we do for the animals and for the community as a whole. 

While the project is nearly complete, we still need financial support. Please, if you are able, consider making a donation at this time, and please spread the word to others who may be able to help.

Gifts of any size will help, and gifts of $2,500 or more can help in the following ways:

$2,500 can help us purchase a surgery table

$5,000 can help us purchase a treatment table, treatment light, or autoclave

$7,500 can help us purchase a dental system

$10,000 can help us purchase a dental x-ray system

$25,000 can help us purchase surgery lights

$75,000 can help us purchase a full-body x-ray system

On behalf of the animals, thank you.

Greenhill continues to expand

Thanks to you and supporters like you, on July 1st of this year, we entered a new era of improved care and well-being for animals and the people connected to them. On that day, we were able to welcome all of our community's homeless, abused, neglected, and lost pets into the new shelter and care facility that you helped build.

The animals that we care for have new, clean, open, and stress reducing spaces. Each housing area has tons of natural light and a variety of enrichment options. This has resulted in animals feeling calmer and being adopted to new, loving families much quicker. For animals that are brought to us to heal, we now have safe, clean, enriching housing. Animals that come to us because of abuse, neglect, or because of a crisis are treated to a calming and caring environment. Thanks to you, the physical environment can now compliment the high level of compassion and care that has been provided by our staff and volunteers.

Thank you so much for helping get us here. Each day I see the impact your support has made on the animals in our care. I hope that you, too, can come out and see the impact for yourself.

In the months ahead, we hope to reach the next level by completing construction of a state-of-the-art veterinary medical clinic. This clinic will enable us to provide critical care to animals in need. It will enable us to care for more animals and address a wider range of medical issues.

This is a vital component of the life-saving work that we do for the animals and for the community as a whole. Please, if you are able, consider supporting the next phase of this building project. This is a perfect time to make a donation that will have a lasting impact for decades.

Gifts of any size will help, and gifts of $2,500 or more can help in the following ways:
