  • Eau Claire Humane Association Honors our Life Saving Volunteers

    May 17, 2018

    Eau Claire Humane Association Honors our Life Saving Volunteers

    Like other non- profit organizations, volunteers are the backbone of the Eau Claire County Humane Association.  Volunteers provide many services that help us fulfill our mission and enrich the lives of the animals we care for yearly.  A total of 450 volunteers contributed over 12,000 hours of service in 2017. 

    We honored all of our volunteers on April 24th during our Annual Volunteer Banquet and Meeting and recognized a few that have gone above and beyond for animal welfare. The evening was hosted by the Best Western Plus with a delicious meal. Our guest speaker was Eau Claire Police Officer and Handler Ian O'Connell with K-9 Officer Jake who performed a few demonstrations as well. 

    We are thankful to the following contributing sponsors that provided table raffle baskets allowing ECCHA to raise $560 for pets in need:

    Chippewa Valley Growers, Lee Lee Photography, Wegners CPA, Chippewa Valley Wildlife Rehabilitation, Green Bay Packers Corporate Giving, Famous Dave's, Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association, The Joynt, Marc-On Shooting, Country Inn & Suites, Green Oasis, Cousin Subs, Imagine Art by Presleigh, and Caradori Pottery.  Volunteers, volunteer award recipients, and staff reservations were sponsored in part by Dr. Daniel and Kerry Kincaid, Christina Thrun, and Nikki Hanna
