EUGENE, Ore. – Greenhill Humane Society is getting some help caring for the dozens of dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in Lane County last month.

McKenzie Feed and Pet Supplies and Hope 107.9 radio station donated more than $1,000 in gift certificates to Greenhill to help them buy food and supplies.

This will feed each dog for three months.

"With a small animal that can't advocate for themselves, we need to educate people on how good food makes a difference for their health, nutrition and livelihood, especially with the rough start that they had,” said Dani Wright, owner of McKenzie Feed and Pet Supplies. “We'd love to be able to help the pets and the people that adopt them make a better choice for their food so they can thrive."

More than 100 dogs were rescued from a home near Walton in October. Some were sent to shelters in Salem and Portland.

Nine of the dogs were put up for adoption at Greenhill and all found loving homes. Greenhill staff said more dogs could become available soon.
