EUGENE, Ore. — A small group of protesters gathered late Thursday night outside the First Avenue Shelter.
They voiced their concerns over dogs they say were euthanasia candidates. They say the shelter was planning to kill them Thursday even though protesters claim a different group would assume responsibility for the dogs.
The protesters say First Avenue, which is run by Greenhill Humane Society, has stopped any plans to kill the dogs. The group plans to be back out there Thursday morning.
“If we had more presence from the community in here, it would help make everybody, everybody would be happier. We would have more accountability,” said one protester.
KEZI 9 News reached out to Greenhill administrators after hours to get their side of the story but was not able to reach anyone.
