EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) - About twenty new dogs will soon be looking for new homes.
The pups arrived Thursday at Greenhill Humane Society as a part of their "second chance" program.
The dogs came from a high kill shelter in Southern California. Greenhill told NewsSource 16 they will likely find homes within a week of their adoption availability, which is Friday, March 16th.
"They're all smaller, healthy dogs, about a year old," Denise Brittain, Community Outreach Coordinator from Greenhill said.
They have a lot of work to do, though, before the dogs are put up for adoption.
"Every one of them needs to be seen by a veterinarian, make sure they're healthy, make sure they have all their shots. We temperament test them all to make sure we know and understand their behaviors. Then we will spay and neuter all of them before they go home," she explained.
Greenhill is also promoting a special event where some adoptable pets will be discounted for Saint "Paw"-trics Day.
