Although the new building project for the Eau Claire County Humane Association (ECCHA) is progressing, some fundraising still needs to be done.
"We were expecting to have a little bit more funding come through from the city of Eau Claire, but they were still able to gift us $250,000, which is amazing," ECCHA Marketing and Development Director Addie Erdmann says. And we are appreciative of it. But as a result, we are currently raising a little bit more money than we had anticipated by this point.
According to Erdmann, they are short by about 10% of their objective and are looking to the community for assistance. We recently distributed a mailer to numerous households in the Eau Claire region. We refer to it as our 10%. Ask everyone to increase their previous donations by 10% if they have previously contributed. merely to assist us in reaching the remaining 10% of our objective.
The new structure will provide the animals with greater room. "Our goal with the new building was not to generally help more animals, but to do it better," continues Erdman. The most important thing is to keep pets healthier, happier, and more adaptive, says Erdmann. There will be more space in our dog kennels. There will be more cat areas. For sick animals, we'll have an isolation area.
in addition to wanting to boost the number of adoptions. According to Erdmann, "We'll be able to adopt out the creatures that come in more quickly, which naturally frees up another room so another animal can come in more quickly. And as a result, we'll be able to help a lot more animals.
Additionally, according to ECCHA personnel, there are still animals in need of new homes until those new structures are finished. According to Karen Rabideaux, director of operations for ECHA, "ECCHA is now overflowing with animals, thus we are seeking adopters. We are aware that the transition back to routines brought on by school starting might be difficult. Therefore, whether it's for a few weeks or more, we're encouraging individuals to foster pets.
In the summer of 2024, construction on the new structure is anticipated to be complete. According to Erdmann, the building will be completed as per a contract with the bank, but donations are still favored and welcome.
According to Erdmann, ECCHA assists in about 1,500 adoptions annually, and all of the animals seen in the article are now looking for new homes.
