PAWTY IN THE USA!
On Saturday, July 2nd, it's a Pawty in the USA! CCHS will be hosting this fun event at the Shelter from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. We are celebrating 35 years of love at CCHS! We are happy to have survived the Covid pandemic and we're back in full force. We've done lots of updates to refresh the Shelter that we can't wait to share with you!
We have a great day planned with something for everybody. KamBray Food Truck and Kat's Sweet Escape will be serving yummy food. There will be a photo booth, bake sale, silent auction, garage sale, and rock painting for the kids. Enjoy live music with the Possum Creek Trio (from 11-12 and 1-2). We'll have many local crafters and vendors selling their unique gifts, soaps, home and outdoor decor, signs, gluten free treats, lotions, nail wraps, decals, cosmetics, apparel, wooden decor, jewelry, cookie jars & cookbooks, plus much more. You can click on the logos shown below for more details and to visit their Facebook pages and websites.
Of course the highlight of the event will be getting to meet the dogs and cats available for adoption. There will be special "Meet a Shelter Dog" booth where CCHS volunteers will introduce you to some awesome canines. The cats and kittens in Kitty City can't wait to entertain you, too.
We will have a big tent with tables and chairs, so we are set if it's rain or shine. Please come and enjoy our special day. Tours of the Shelter and FixaPet Clinic will also be available. It's a wonderful opportunity to learn what CCHS is all about and we always invite you to join our Shelter family!
So mark your calendars right now: July 2nd, 10:00 - 4:00 at CCHS, W3926 State Hwy 73, Neillsville. Don't miss the Pawty in the USA!
We are looking for more volunteers to help out with the cats and dogs at CCHS! It's the time of year when spring sports and school activities are kicking in, and things get pretty busy. But if you've been thinking about helping out at the Shelter, now is the perfect time! If you'd like to help out a few hours a week, one day a month, or something in-between, we'd love for you to volunteer! You can fill out the volunteer form right here on our website. You can also email April at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd be delighted to have you join the team at CCHS where you can truly make a difference for cats and dogs in need!

2021 Dog & Cat Statistics
We are very proud of our 2021 Statistics. As a true No-Kill Shelter, we believe that transparency is critical to our mission, and will always disclose factual numbers for adoptions/RTO's/transfers/deaths/euthanasias at the Shelter. (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 98.4% for dogs in 2020 and 97.0% for cats.
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 23,000 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.
