Purpose/Goals
  • To assure that the public is protected from diseases spread by animals
  • To assure that rabies does not occur in humans, dogs, cats or ferrets within Eau Claire County 
Program Description
  • Provide advice and information to the public on eliminating or controlling rodents, insects and other animals capable of causing or transmitting disease to humans.
  • Investigate and enforce state city and county rules regarding insect, rodent and animal infestation problems of public health importance. Provide consultation and other resources to address diseases spread by animals.
  • Partner with the Eau Claire City Police Department and County Humane Association to enforce city and county regulations on reported animal bites and pet quarantines. Follow-up is done for cases of animal bites to humans by requiring a 10-day quarantine of the animal or laboratory testing to rule out rabies infection.
  • Advise the public and health care professionals on appropriate measures to take when an individual is bitten by a domestic pet or a wild animal, and the appropriate preventive measures when following up on potential rabies cases.
