EUGENE, Ore. – Paco arrived in Oregon from California a few days ago to start a new life.
He is one of 14 dogs transferred from an overcrowded California shelter. Because he was a stray dog, little is known about his life before arriving at Greenhill Humane Society.

Paco is a Chihuahua mix and is believed to be about 3 years old. He is a bit shy and is still adjusting to his new environment. Introductions to new people and situations will need to be slow.

His adoption fee is $185, which includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Every Tuesday, Greenhill Humane Society showcases homeless pets on KEZI 9 News Midday at 11 a.m.

If you are interested in Paco or any other animals at Greenhill Humane Society, call 541-689-1503 or click here.

To ensure a good match is made, potential adopters must go to Greenhill in person to meet with the animal and kennel staff. All family members should be present to ensure the dog is compatible with everyone in the household.
