Lost Dogs

Our Mission Statement

At the Eau Claire County Humane Association we are dedicated to making this world a better place for animals to live. We strive to help homeless animals find their new, forever loving homes. We do our very best to assist every pet that comes through our doors.

Animal education is another large aspect of our mission. By teaching our community about responsible pet ownership and assisting them with the needs of their pets, we hope to decrease the number of homeless animals in our community.

The mission of the Eau Claire County Humane Association is to be a voice for all animals by providing education, resources, and support for the community, compassionate care for homeless animals until they can be placed in forever homes, and coordination with other organizations to promote animal welfare.

Lost Your Pet?

What to do if your pet is missing.

We understand that loosing your pet is very scary, but by being organized, diligent, and following these tips, we hope to help reunite you with your beloved family member.

  1. Check your home thoroughly – it may sound strange, but sometimes (especially cats), lost pets are simply hiding in a clever spot within your house. This happens frequently if something has startled them, such as a new pet or person coming into the home.
  2. Contact all of the area shelters to see if your pet is there or has been reported as found by a citizen. ECCHA can be reached at 715-839-4747 ext 21 or by email at info@eccha.org. Always provide a picture.
  3. Call your veterinarian and other clinics in your area as well as neighbors to inform them your pet is missing.
  4. Make fliers which include the following:
    • A high-quality, close-up photo of your pet
    • Your pet's name
    • When and where you last saw him/her
    • Your contact information.
    Make sure the flier is brief and clear. Write “Lost Pet” at the top in heavy, bold lettering, and make the picture and your phone number large.
  5. Ask friends, family and neighbors to go out and help you look for your pet. Call for your pet by name in the woods and along streets.
  6. Place an ad in your local newspaper (lost ads are typically free), on your Facebook or other social media sites, craigslist.com, LostDogsOfWisconsin.org (for dogs only), and any other websites you can think of.
  7. Don't give up! Sometimes lost animals show up in shelters months after they disappear.
