Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Chippewa Humane Association; also known as the Howard Gibbs Memorial Animal Shelter, seeks to relieve the suffering of homeless companion animals. By setting an example of excellence in animal care and placement, humane education, and community leadership, we can successfully emphasize their importance.
Who we serve and what we do
We serve the Chippewa County in the state of Wisconsin and its surrounding areas. The Chippewa Humane Association takes in stray cats and dogs from contracted municipalities in Chippewa County as well as surrendered companion animals.
We have cats, dogs and the occasional reptile or other domesticated small animals available for adoption at our facility and at the cat adoption center in PetSmart of Eau Claire. There are no time limits that regulate how long adoptable animals are available at our facility or adoption centers. As long as the animal remains in good health and temperament, it is available until it is adopted.
The Chippewa Humane Association works with members of the community to educate all ages about the humane treatment of animals. We work closely with national and local groups to reach our mission and strengthen the connection between people and companion animals.
The Chippewa Humane Association is a not for profit animal shelter, a registered 501(c)(3). We are licensed with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and inspected annually by the State of Wisconsin. Our Dog Seller and Dog Facility Operator License Number is: 267332-DS. We are proud to report that we passed our inspection in November of 2014 without a single violation! Being licensed with the state is one of many things we do to ensure the highest standards of animal care at our facility
