We look forward to serving you and your pets needs

Just minutes from the Central Wisconsin Airport, Animal House is located in Kronenwetter between Wausau and Mosinee. Animal House has been a family run business for over 30 years. Recently, long time owner Mary Van Ert retired. Patti and Jesse Artz have taken ownership. Patti has worked at Animal House for over 9 years. Patti and her team have been committed to making the Animal House your pet's home away from home.

The comfort and safety of your pets is as important to us as it is to you. Our experienced staff is here to care for your pets so you can relax and enjoy your time away. But, if you need a little "pet fix", please check our Facebook page for our daily videos and pictures. Your pet may be the "star" that day.

Our facility is temperature controlled for the ultimate comfort of your pet. Our large, grassy outdoor exercise areas give your pet plenty of room to play and expend some energy. We will not turn your pets out in the same area with another visitor but they do get plenty of interaction between the fences.

Cleanliness is a top priority at Animal House. We follow a strict cleaning protocol approved by our consulting veterinarian. We encourage you to tour our building any time we are open and have all of your questions answered.
