Santa & Mrs. Claus return to CCHS!!
After a very long 3-year absence due to Covid, Santa & Mrs. Claus are finally returning to CCHS for our "Pet Pictures With Santa" event. The duo will be visiting CCHS on Saturday, December 3rd, from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to bring their pets for some very special photos with Mr. & Mrs. Claus. We are delighted that Time & Light Photography will again be providing professional photo services. No appointment is needed, and there is a $5.00 sitting fee per pet. Your choice of photos will then be available, either as prints (a variety of sizes available), digitally by email, or all those taken during your session on a flash drive. Prices are very reasonable!
It's a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the Holidays with your special pets! All pets are welcome, from cats and dogs to rats and goats! We've even heard we might have some chickens visiting us this year! Please join us for a fun afternoon and make some great Christmas memories!
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 2021 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.
