Pet of the Week – Eliza
We’d like to introduce you to Eliza, who arrived at Green Hills Animal Shelter in February. When Eliza first arrived at the shelter, she was very ill. She had an upper respiratory infection and an oral infection, as well as a gastrointestional issue. She was very weak and at first she could only eat wet food. Staff worried that she might be too sick to recover, but they could also see the hope and determination in her eyes. With a lot of love and care, Eliza recovered, and today she is healthy and ready for her Forever Home.
Eliza is only about 8 months old and with her white fur and perfectly placed black markings, she is quite a beautiful girl. Eliza loves people, and she is sweet and affectionate. She is also very gentle and lady-like, and she loves to vocalize and chat with shelter staff and volunteers.
Since Eliza has been through so much, her perfect home would be that of a pampered indoor-only kitty. She is still very young, so she should adapt well to other cats or pets in the home, and her sweet, gentle nature makes her a purr-fect companion who will fill your life with happiness and love.
Eliza has been spayed, de-wormed, FIV and FeLV tested, and is up to date on all her vaccinations, including rabies. The only thing she is missing is a Forever Home of her very own. Could that home be yours?
Please note that effective immediately, Green Hills Animal Shelter will be open by appointment only
until further notice. With COVID-19 cases now being confirmed in Livingston and Harrison Counties, we
have chosen to do this in order to do our part to help protect our community, staff and volunteers
during this time.
Being open by appointment only will allow us to continue to serve you, while limiting the number of
people in the building at any given time. Appointments will be offered Monday through Saturday
between the hours of 1PM and 5PM. Appointments can be made by phoning the shelter at 660-359-
Please note that the appointment only policy applies not only to adoptions, but also to surrenders,
found animals and lost animal searches and claims.
During this time, we encourage you to view our available animals and fill out your adoption applications
prior to your appointment at www.greenhillsanimalshelter.org . Adoption applications may be
completed for a specific animal, or as a general application with no individual animal specified.
We would also like to implore everyone to consider:
1. Adopting a pet during this time. Our shelter, like all shelters, has a limited number of kennels
and resources. Every pet that is adopted opens a space to help another pet in need. It breaks
our heart to have to decline an intake because our kennels are full and our resources are
stretched to the maximum. Remember: Every pet you save saves two – the one you adopted
and the one you opened a space for!
2. Making a donation. Green Hills Animal Shelter operates through adoptions, fundraisers and the
donations of our supporters (both monetary and in-kind donations). As the COVID-19 virus
continues to spread, we, like shelters across the country, are being forced one-by-one to cancel
our normal fundraisers, which we depend on for operating. We are also faced with the fact that
there may be a day in the near future when we are forced to temporarily close our doors due to
COVID-19. If that happens, is important to us to be here to serve and support both the animals
and people of our community when this crisis has passed. We know this is an uncertain time for
everyone, and any support you can offer would be appreciated.
