FixaPet is hiring! We are seeking a full-time Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT) to add to our growing staff and expanding programs! FixaPet is a HQHVSN program sponsored by the Clark County Humane Society in Neillsville, WI. Since its inception, FixaPet has performed more than 21,000 spay/neuter surgeries. And we’re just getting started!
FixaPet is now expanding to add more spay/neuter surgeries each day, provide dental services, increase wellness appointments and vaccinations, and to ensure basic veterinary care. We are excited about our future, and want you to be a part of it.
Our ideal candidate will be a team player with a positive attitude. Must be currently licensed in the State of Wisconsin. Previous CVT experience is required, as well as skills handling dogs and cats. This position will work closely with our veterinarians and other staff. Excellent oral and written communication skills are required. We are looking for professional, friendly interactions with clients, with client education always important. Attention to detail, efficiency, and organizational skills are a plus. Compassionate care for patients is of the utmost priority. Assistance with future plans to pursue Fear Free certification for the clinic is desirable.
Basic tasks for this CVT position will include performing lab procedures, surgical prep, assisting with anesthesia, monitoring patients, taking vital signs, administering medications, phlebotomy, record keeping, and other duties as assigned. Ability to stand, walk, stoop, kneel and crouch is needed, as well as ability to carry up to 50 pounds (heavier lifting will always require assistance from another staff member). As the FixaPet program also provides the care for shelter animals residing at CCHS, a great opportunity also exists for becoming involved with our Shelter Medicine program. Other duties may be defined as the FixaPet program expands. We are looking for that special CVT to grow with us. Ultimately, we are looking for a self-starter and go-getter willing to also take on responsibility for coordinating the surgical day, supervising appointments, being responsible for ordering supplies, utilizing staff to the best of their talents, and making FixaPet the best place to bring pets for their basic care. Our newest CVT will be a key part of our bright future!
At FixaPet we respect a positive work/life balance. There are no night, weekend, or emergency hours. Benefits include paid time off, health insurance, continuing education opportunities, professional stipend for license dues and professional memberships, and a beautiful working environment in Central Wisconsin. While we are searching for a full-time CVT, part-time applicants will also be considered. Beginning pay is $15-20 per hour, depending on experience and efficiency. We intend to fill this position ASAP.
Please send cover letter, resume and compensation requirements to Chuck Wegner, Executive Director, PO Box 127, Neillsville, WI, 54456, or email to email@example.com.

CCHS & Covid 19
CCHS is continuing to do adoptions by appointment only using social distancing guidelines. Our adoption floor and Kitty City are not open for general viewing at this time. Pets available for adoption may be seen on our website and applications can be submitted online as well. Volunteer Orientations, Tours, Birthday Parties and Outreach events have been discontinued until further notice.
Our CC Resale 2 store is again open on Saturdays from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. There is a ton of new merchandise on display, so you're sure to find some treasures you just have to have! Our original CC Resale Store (located at 600 Hewett St, across from the Neillsville Post Office) is open the first Friday of each month from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. On those Fridays there is a $2.00 bag sale: $2.00 for everything you can fit in a large grocery bag. What a deal!!
Our FixaPet Program is trying to catch up as best we can. We do have a waiting list for spay/neuter surgeries and priority will be given to those clients as spots become available. Appointments for vaccinations are also being scheduled once again! Appointments can be made by contacting our Appointment Coordinator Heidi at or at 715-937-7770 (please leave a message).

(Redemptions or RTO's are strays that came to the Shelter and are returned to their owners.) We are thrilled that our Live Release Rate is 99.5% for dogs in 2020 and 99.4% for cats.
