This position allows you to get down and dirty. Keeping the kennels and cages sanitary and fresh is one of our greatest needs. So, if you are willing to clean kennels, cages, bowls, and toys — this job is for you! You’ll probably get some TLC yourself, because the kennel staff will worship at your feet! You work alongside staff to maintain the healthy conditions in our animal shelter.
Hours: 3 hour shifts available Monday-Friday. 8 am until 11 am and 3 pm until 6 pm. Limited Week-end availability.
Basic Feline Socialization
Do you enjoy spending one-on-one time with cats? Help animals become more adoptable and help reduce shelter stress by providing exercise, stimulation and playtime. Holding, playing, combing and brushing the cats gives them some much needed attention. This interaction helps the animals become comfortable with human contact and much more adoptable. Cat socialization requires extra training.
Hours: 3 hour shifts available Monday-Friday. Not available on the weekend.
Customer Service Assistance
Do you like meeting and talking with people? Our Ambassadors meet and greet shelter visitors, guide them to adoption areas and answer frequently asked questions (cheat-sheet provided!). You may even be trained to help us complete vet checks and process applications. This position is vital to the adoption of our animals. Training is provided on-site and no prior experience is necessary!
Hours: 11 am until 1 pm and 1 pm until 5 pm daily.
Development /Back Office Assistance
Do you like computer work or assisting with fundraising efforts? This job helps with data entry, gift acknowledgement, alphabetizing donor records, folding/stuffing letters for mailings and other office work to thank our wonderful donors.
Hours: Shifts available Monday-Friday.
Having foster homes allows us to take in litters of puppies and kittens that might otherwise be turned away. All that is required is that you enjoy caring for little ones, love them and keep them safe. Puppies and kittens usually are kept for two weeks and we provide necessary crates, food, litter and medications (if needed). If you are interested in this position here is some more information.
Spay/Neuter Clinic Assistance
Do you enjoy a variety of activities? There is always something to do at our spay/neuter clinics. You can answer telephones in the office, complete registration forms, clean the pet cages after recovery or prepare the sterile packs for the next day surgeries. Shifts available Monday – Friday
Special Events/Fundraising Assistance
You can help in the planning and execution of our special events and fund-raisers such as our annual PetPalooza. These fun events provide a diverse range of opportunities to use your skills and creativity.
