WCHS is seeking animal lovers to work in our kennel and animal viewing areas. Your responsibilities will include the daily care, feeding, and medicating of the animals in our care, from large dogs down to small rodents. Experienced animal handling is a plus. In addition, you will be expected to keep the many areas of the shelter sanitized, clean, organized and working properly. Attention to detail and good communication skills are absolutely vital. You should be comfortable lifting both heavy dogs and large bags of dog food (50+ lbs), and be in good physical condition. You also must have excellent customer service skills as you will deal with the public daily. This is a fast paced, quick thinking environment and being a mature, responsible team player is essential. Applicants must be 18 years or older with a valid drivers license, a good driving record, and a high school diploma or GED. The Full-time position requires you to have an after-hours pager rotation once every 4-5 weeks.
*Full-time employees will work 4 full days and 1 half day per week. You will also be required to work 1, occasionally 2, Saturdays and Sunday’s per month.
(Sunday’s ending hours are in approximation only. It is possible that some days you may leave earlier or later than the listed hours. You may not leave until all of the duties are completed.)
Part-time employees will have one weekend off a month.
Do you have a barn or out building where you need a little rodent control? Or perhaps you’d just like to have some feline friends on your property? Look no further, WCHS is looking for OUTDOOR cat homes for our feral (unfriendly) cats that others unfortunately can’t put back on their property.
The qualifications to “adopt” are:
All cats put through our TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program get spayed/neutered, a left ear tip, which signifies they are part of an outdoor community that is cared for and have been fixed, and a rabies shot (depended on age/weight). All of this comes at no cost to you if you are in Washington County!
Interested? Call WCHS at 262-677-4388 and ask for Jessie or Tina for more details!
