EUGENE, Ore. — People upset with the Greenhill Humane Society-Lane County Animal Services merger packed Monday night’s city council meeting.
They say volunteers who work at the First Avenue Animal Shelter, formerly LCAS, get to work in the morning and find the dogs haven’t been let out all night. It’s another in a long list of complaints some residents have against Greenhill’s shelter management.
“The first free shelter has twice as many dogs and half the staff as the Greenhill shelter. It’s understaffed and they’re going to chase away volunteers by their attitude, and so it’s the animals that pay,” said Jill Winans, President of Willamette Animal Guild.
The city manager is looking into some of the accusations brought to light during the meeting.
