OUR APPLICANTS MUST:
- Attach a resume and cover letter. Your resume does not have to reflect professional animal experience (but if you’ve got some, great!). You will not receive a reply unless we receive both items.
- Be 21 or older and have a smart phone with unlimited texting.
- Be tremendously dependable. If you are the kind of person who takes sick days often, has a lot of car trouble, or has to create a schedule based upon other people, this is not the job for you.
- Have a flexible schedule – but, moreover, a flexible attitude. We work with living creatures, so you never know what the day will bring!
- LOVE the outdoors, and remain unflappable in any weather condition.
- Have your own reliable car (sorry, for our service area, a bicycle is not acceptable) and proof of current insurance.
- Be not just an "animal person", but a "people person" as well.
- For Full-time work: Be available to work regular Monday-Friday hours, and some flexible evening, weekend and/or holiday hours as needed.
- For Part-time work: Have reliable, recurring availability - we can discuss options for part-time hours that work for both the company and you.
- For both FT and PT staffers, this job fits in well with your graduate studies, burgeoning art or music careers, your years between schooling, or while your kids are in school during the day.
- Have holiday availability. We operate 365 days a year, and all team members are required to work some portion of a rotation of holidays.
- Be physically capable of walking/hiking for 5+ hours a day, and able to lift at least 50 lbs.
- Be self-motivated, a frequent and open communicator, and a GREAT time-manager. Be the kind of person that always goes beyond what is expected.
- Have outstanding written communication skills and a great sense of humor.
- Live within a reasonable distance of our service area. You may drive back and forth several times a day.
- Be able to commit to a minimum of 18 months as a professional pet caregiver. We do not hire temporary nor seasonal workers.
