We are always looking for passionate animal lovers to join our team. Check out the numerous programs and opportunities below.


Animal Handlers

Our dog and cat handlers play a huge part in ensuring our shelter population is properly cared for. They spend countless hours exercising, training, grooming, transporting, photographing, and building lasting bonds with our furry shelter friends.
