About the Jay Mettler Emergency Medical Fund

The Jay Mettler Emergency Medical Fund was established to provide crucial financial
assistance for emergency medical procedures required by our beloved animal residents.
Whether it’s acute illnesses or traumatic injuries, this fund ensures that no animal goes
untreated or uncared for.


In the 1970s, a compassionate local veterinarian named Jay Mettler recognized the pressing need to support the treatment of animals facing severe health challenges. He took it upon himself to initiate this fund, which has since become a lifeline for thousands of animals in need. From complex invasive surgeries to life-changing amputations, the Jay Mettler Emergency Medical Fund has played a pivotal role in nursing these animals back to health, paving the way for their happy and loving forever homes.

At the Eau Claire County Humane Association, we are dedicated to the well-being of all animals. We believe that every creature, regardless of their circumstances, deserves a chance at a healthy and fulfilling life. Thanks to the Jay Mettler Emergency Medical Fund, we can provide the critical medical care that animals require, giving them the opportunity to heal and thrive.

By supporting our organization and contributing to the Jay Mettler Emergency Medical Fund, you become a lifeline for animals in distress. Your generosity directly impacts their lives, allowing us to provide timely medical interventions that can make all the difference.

Join us in our mission to provide compassionate care and a brighter future for every animal that comes through our doors. Together, we can continue Jay Mettler’s legacy of healing and giving animals a second chance at life.
