EUGENE, Ore. – Greenhill Humane Society has raised $62,598 in donations during the 2nd Annual KVAL Tail-A-Thon held on June 22, 2018.
The donations are dedicated to the Shelter’s building project, which will enhance the care and housing for stray, homeless, and neglected, animals as well as those animals that are in Greenhill’s crisis-care program. During the Tail-A-Thon, 22 animals were adopted from the shelter.
“We are thankful for the generosity and support of KVAL and KVAL’s viewer audience,” says Cary Lieberman, Greenhill’s Executive Director. “The reporters and entire crew did an outstanding job to help raise awareness for the building project and for the animals. We appreciate each and every one who called in, went online, or dropped by the shelter to make a donation. Everyone’s participation is making a tremendous difference in the lives of the animals that we care for.”
The 2nd Annual KVAL Tail-A-Thon’s goal was to raise $60,000 in support of Greenhill Humane Society’s building project. More information about the project can be found at http://green-hill.org/capital_campaign/.
