It was a stressful time for the board, the staff and the lack of stability was not the way they wanted to serve their clients. As a result, the clinic has been working hard to get back on track and is grateful for the support of their banker, Kyle Johansen of Frandsen Bank in Luck. They are also grateful to the public for their financial contributions and those that participate in the weekly meat raffles at the Tavern on Main.
Established in November of 2012 in Frederic, DAWC is a non-profit veterinary now located just north of Siren along the Hwy. 35/70 corridor. They are open weekdays and will include limited Saturday hours this summer.
The clinic has provided quality veterinary services to over 3,500 animals and actively serve over 1,800 clients. Also, they have helped over 125 wildlife animals in need.
