The mission of The Washington County Humane Society is to protect animals from suffering and cruelty, to provide care for animals afflicted by neglect and abandonment, and to enhance the lives of animals and people through education, adoption and compassion.
Celebrating our 60th is only the beginning of what we have planned for 2020. In February, we will begin rebuilding our training and office wards. But we need your help to raise the final $1million to remodel the adoption wards. To move us toward that goal, Jim and Barb Heiligenstein will match up to $60,000 to individuals who donate or pledge to the WCHS capital campaign anytime before May 1. Help us care for the animals and provide services to the community well into the future.
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.
(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.
**Please note: your donation will be going to The Washington County Humane Society in WISCONSIN.**
