About Us


 Qualified, Experienced Team of Caring Professionals

Conveniently located approximately four miles east of Chetek and central to Rice Lake and Eau Claire, WI.   We are easily accessible for clients from the St Paul and Minneapolis area with close proximity to Hwy 8 and Hwy 53.  NCC sits on a picturesque 69 acres divided by Moose Ear Creek. 

We are a small family owned & operated facility; grateful for the lifestyle and for the trust our clients put in us!

Because our days are filled with activities revolving around the needs of the animals, we require and appreciate appointments.
