This project addresses the need to provide better care for animals in crisis. We are currently limited by our two aging, inadequate facilities. In October, we rescued 98 small dogs from a hoarding situation and our kennels could not safely contain them. The current kennels were built in the 1950's and many of the dogs are so small, they were able to maneuver themselves out of the kennels. We had to use pvc pipe and zip ties to build barriers to safely contain the dogs in our care.
State-of-the-art housing will provide a space for dogs to safely heal and relax in our care. New buildings will provide indoor kennels, extended stay rooms, indoor meet & greet rooms, an indoor behavior training yard, and multiple indoor and outdoor play yards. This new space will reduce noise levels and stress while improving care, flow, safety, and customer service. This will significantly strengthen our ability to find homes for animals and enhance our on-site veterinary capabilities.
This project is the largest in Greenhill Humane Society's history and is driven by the need to provide better behavioral and medical care for animals in crisis. Our goal is to help keep pets with their families by providing better access to veterinary care and pet care counseling, and to find new, loving homes for abandoned and surrendered animals. This new facility is going to improve the lives of animals and impact people who care about animals for generations to come.
