Greenhill Humane Society in Eugene receives 35 abandoned cats
Nearly three dozen cats were found abandoned in a Eugene apartment recently. Greenhill Humane Society has received them and is seeking homes for some of the felines.
Greenhill’s Director of Operations Sasha Elliott says fifteen cats are available for adoption. The cats do have health issues, including ringworm, which Elliott said is treatable and temporary.
“Initially they’ve been pretty timid but many of them have warmed up to our team,” Elliott said. “And they’re really sweet and quite affectionate. And we think that adoptive families will be rewarded by taking in a new, wonderful companion animal."
The cats are between 1 ½ and 2 years in age and more will likely be up for adoption in the coming days.
Elliot says the shelter is rather full as it is kitten season.
Greenhill has been busy with providing shelter for animals affected by the recent wildfires. They also helped with cooling centers during the recent heat waves.
“It’s quite a busy time of year for us but we are happy to be the safety net for companion animals in Lane County that need help,” she said.
