EUGENE, Ore. -- Three of the last four puppies rescued from a hoarding case in Lane County have found new homes.
On Monday, Greenhill Humane Society announced that Oliver, Mouse, Sirius and Alucard were ready to find their forever homes. Sasha Elliott with Greenhill said three of the Chihuahuas are already living with their new families. The fourth dog, Sirius, is on hold for someone hoping to adopt it on Friday.
The shelter took in 111 dogs during a hoarding case in October 2017. Some of the dogs were born after they arrived at the shelter.
Greenhill staff said it's never been more apparent they need a new dog housing facility. The current dog housing at the shelter was built in the 1950s and many of the rescued dogs were so small, they could escape from their kennels.
Elliott said by improving the housing, they'll greatly improve the type of care they provide animals. She said a new, state-of-the-art facility will create a safer, more efficient space for animals and people.
Elliott said they currently have more than 65 animals in their care at Greenhill Humane Society and First Avenue Shelter, either waiting to be adopted, reunited with their families, or receiving safe shelter as part of their Crisis Care or Foster Care programs.
