Help Wanted: Adoption and Admissions Counselors

Do you enjoy working with both animals and humans? Are you looking for a gratifying part-time gig? If so, Animal Friends is looking for you! We’re recruiting dedicated people to join our staff as Adoption and Admission Counselors.

Both our homeless residents and visitors seeking pets depend on Adoption and Admission Counselors, who admit homeless pets to the shelter, and serve as matchmakers with potential adopters to help them find new best friends.

The ideal staffer will be ready to serve as the public face of Animal Friends. You’ll have great customer service skills, an ability to work with cats, dogs, and rabbits, and the patience and enthusiasm to place our animals in permanent, loving homes.

If you’re a student, this position is a great opportunity for marketing, public relations or psychology majors to gain some real-world experience and develop your skills. More experienced job-seekers can work part-time in a busy, lively atmosphere that offers the opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of animals. And semi-retired folks can find a way to become involved in the important work that takes place every day at Animal Friends.

Think about it – if this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Or if an animal-loving friend is looking to work part-time, pass it along.
