July 4 fireworks are known for scaring pups. If you lose your dog or find a stray this week the Greenhill/Lane County Animal Services transition may have you confused. Greenhill Humane Society started running the LCAS shelter as of July 1, and it appears that lost and found animals will be on the Greenhill website.
The city of Eugene has posted a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on its website. Head’s up it’s a pdf.
Eugene Police Department tells us you can call the animal services’ direct line 24/7 at 541-687-4060 to report: a found animal, lost pet, animal at large or animal abuse.
Lane County tells us that if you lose a pet in the city of Eugene, “Typically, people should call the City of Eugene’s hotline 541-687-4060.”A secondary source of information could be Greenhill (541-689-1503) or the Greenhill Humane Society website http://www.green-hill.org, the county says.
Similarly, people within the City of Springfield should call 541-726-3634 for Springfield’s Animal Control Office and then check Greenhill.
Lane County Animal Services will not have an animal welfare officer on duty, July 4, we are told, but Lane County tells us word is that Eugene will have two officers on duty. People will be able to leave a message on the Lane County message line at 541-682-3645. Lane County residents can also check with Greenhill to see if their animal has been admitted to the shelter.
And the Greenhill site repeats the info and gives a couple more numbers:
If you have lost or found a pet, you should also immediately contact your local animal control office to file a lost pet report.
