Raising awareness about animal welfare and working to increase donation revenue are both key elements to keeping the shelter running. From pet expos to community outreach opportunities, ECCHA always has something exciting to involve you and your pet. We host new events almost monthly and are always reaching out to our community for support. So check back often to learn more about our current needs and upcoming events.
October is ADOPT-A-DOG Month!
Wednesday, October 1 - Friday, October 31 :: 12 until 4 pm
Are you looking to adopt that perfect canine companion? Well, now is the time to do it! October is Adopt-a-Dog Month. What does that mean for you? It means a number of things:
- $25 off the cost of adoption
- $25 discount at participating vet clinics for a spay/neuter procedure
- A free vet check at a wide variety of surrounding vet clinics
- Nails trimmed/ears cleaned
- Free pet insurance for 30 days (with valid email, must opt-in)
- Checked for internal/external parasites
- Collar, leash, and tag
- Unlimited and unconditional love!
So come to the shelter to take a look at our adoptable dogs. We are really full with wonderful dogs looking for their forever home. We get new dogs in daily so there are always new faces to greet you. If you don't find the right dog for you, fill out an application anyway, we can keep applications on file for 6 months. Please consider adding a wonderful companion to your home.
Congratulations to the Treat Yourself Raffle Winners!!

Lee Fritts was the lucky winner of a $750.00 Visa prepaid card and Patrick Day won a Dreamhouse Interiors $500 gift certificate. Forty-six individuals won an assortment of additional great prizes.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Eau Claire Express and the six businesses that sponsored ECCHA night: Eau Claire Animal Hospital, embark, Northside Pet Hospital, Oakwood Hills Animal Hospital, Pet Food Plus, and Westgate Animal Hospital. The ECCHA was given the opportunity to sell raffle tickets at five separate Express games and spread the word about ECCHA's mission and showcase pets that are available for adoption.
