Donate to our pet shelter

Planned Giving

You're never too young to plan for the future. Although you may be concentrating on starting your career, growing your business, or planning for retirement, it is the perfect time to bequest the Eau Claire County Humane Association as a benefactor in your will or trust.

Several of our supporters have already acted to ensure the future of our organization by becoming a member of the ECCHA Legacy Society, an exclusive group of dedicated supporters who have made planned gifts which will help protect homeless and abused animals in our community for years to come.

Make a Donation:

help support our cause.

The Eau Claire County Humane Association (ECCHA) receives no funding from any local, state, or national organization. We rely on donations from our generous community – people just like you, who care about the well-being of the homeless, abandoned and neglected animals that arrive at our shelter every day.

Without your support we would be unable to fulfill our mission.  The staff and Board of Directors are so grateful for any level of giving on behalf of the animals in our care.

No Amount is Too Small

All donations to ECCHA are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our Tax ID Number is 39-6125537. As always, no matter the dollar amount, your contributions make a positive impact on the thousands of pets who rely on ECCHA for shelter each year.

Use our secure, online donation form to make a one-time gift or commit to a monthly, quarterly, or annual donation of your choice. Honor or memory of a beloved pet or person, make a donation today:
