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.

Found an Animal?

What to do if you find an animal.

  • Handle with caution! A frightened, sick or injured animal can act unpredictably and bite or claw out of fear. If possible, use a live trap, slip leash, or very thick gloves to capture it. Once it is contained, try not to handle the animal anymore.
  • Call the Eau Claire Communications Center at 715-839-4972, and tell them where you found the animal. They will be able to dispatch the proper person to be notified of the stray. The ECCHA cannot accept animals from the public if they were found in certain townships/municipalities; instead, they must go through that municipality’s appointed personnel.
  • While waiting for an animal control officer/on-call personnel, handle the animal as little as possible to avoid contracting or spreading disease or getting injured. Keep all stray animals away from children and other pets.
