Nicole Dunkley has worked in animal care at Buck Animal Hospital since 2004. Her main responsibility is to take care of the animals. Feeding and cleaning the animals as well as walking the dogs are all in a day’s work for Nicole. She cares deeply about all the animals staying at the hospital and ensures that they stay happy and comfortable. Prior to joining the team at Buck Animal Hospital, she volunteered at the KW Humane Society for two years.

All animals have a special place Nicole’s heart.  Her non human family members include -ball python Rocky, Heidi a young Collie Mix that she rescued, cat named Jonesy whom she also rescued and her newest member would be a puppy named Lucy.

Outside of work, Nicole had been involved with multiple levels of obedience training as well as tricks classes with her dogs. She is also certified in pet first aid and is a certified Veterinary Nutritional Advocate.  Nicole’s spare time now is spent raising their 2 children with her husband.



Christie McCue has worked at Bucks as an animal care personal since 2012. She was covering Nicole’s maternity leave and is once again working her evening kennel position.
Christie’s focus has always been on animal care, starting as a volunteer for over 30 years ago at various Animal Clinics and Pet Shops as well as at the Ontario Veterinary College.

Christie is always helping out animals in need and giving them a home whether 4 legged or 2 legged . It would not be an odd site to see a squirrel or a seagull being fostered and rehabilitated in the McCue household. Their permanent residences include several cats Bob, Mani, Butters and the newest member Murdock, 2 pomeranian’s – Grizzly  Zipper. A Papillon named Mowss (mouse) and a Senegal Parrot – Boggie. The house is filled with a lot of love and noise.
