Paw Away Hunger at Festival Foods– Every dollar raised through this program is donated back to our organization through needed supplies we use every day.

Participation is simple:

Visit Festival Foods in Eau Claire.

Look for the “Paw Away Hunger” display.

Select a $5 or $10 bag from the display.

Checkout your selected bag.

Place the bag back on the display.

A unique identification number on the bag will track your “Paw Away Hunger” donation. Once a minimum has been raised, the money will be donated to the shelter to buy supplies.

  Donate used ink cartridges and cell phones – We are involved in theFundingFactory Recycling Program. Instead of throwing them away, drop off your used printer cartridges and old cell phones at ECCHA (3900 Old Town Hall Road in Eau Claire). We recycle the cartridges and cell phones through the FundingFactory to earn new technology and cash.
  Walk for a Dog – Get the App at www.WoofTrax.com and raise funds for ECCHA. When you sign up for this free app, WoofTrax.com will donate to ECCHA for every mile you walk. Hit the trails today with your own dog or volunteer at the shelter and walk one of ours.
  Lend a Paw – by joining the Fresh Step paw points program. Create an account at www.FreshStep.com, find codes on specially marked boxes of Fresh Step litter, find ECCHA in the Paw Points Cat-a-log, and donate your points. Your points will help ECCHA earn free cat products from litter to toys.
  Pop Cans for PAWS

Aluminum cans be dropped off at the shelter or directly at our partner company ProVyro Metal Recycling on 2318 Ridge Road (behind the old K-mart off Fairfax) These recycling efforts not only help our environment, but they also raise much needed funds. If you drop them off directly at ProVyro, please mention that they are for our shelter.  

RECYCLE! Aluminum can be dropped off at the shelter or directly at our partner company U-Can Recycling on 2318 Ridge Road.

Also, recycle those used ink cartridges, toner cartridges, cell phones, and small electronics at the shelter. We send these items to Funding Factory to reuse or recycle and get paid for every item. Don’t have time to drop off the items here — become a business supporter and get the needed supplies to ship them out directly from your place of business to Funding Factory on behalf of ECCHA.

These recycling efforts not only help our environment, but they also contribute to the animals.

If you drop items off directly at UCan, please mention that they are for our shelter.


NEW! Milk Moola & Donuts to Dough from Kwik Trip:

Simply collect the caps and bag tops from specially marked Milk MoolaSM products, and for each cap and bag top we redeem, Kwik Trip, Inc. will give us 5¢. For each Glazers price oval from Glazers dozen or half-dozen boxes of Glazers Donuts, Kwik Trip, Inc. will give us 10¢. Caps and ovals can be dropped off at the shelter.


Sponsor a Pet through Petfinder: 

We have so many wonderful pets up for adoption and you can help them find their forever homes faster by being a sponsor.

Visit our website at www.eccha.org and click on adopt. Click on a pet to find out more about them. When viewing their profile, you will see a green Sponsor Me link that will take you to PetFinder Foundations donation page.
Pets that are sponsored have special signs on their kennels notifying potential adopters that they have funds towards their adoption fee or towards altering (spay or neuter).


Sponsor an Elementary Classroom to receive Kind News:

Kind News teaches K-6 children kindness and respect for animals, focusing on a child’s connection to animals and nature.
Help ECCHA reach as many classrooms as possible by sponsoring your child’s or grandchild’s classroom.
Classroom sponsorships are $30 each, and ECCHA currently supplies 12 classrooms in 5 different schools with this yearly subscription. For more information on this program visit www.humanesociety.org/kindnews
