Animal Shelter Worker Information
February 8th, 2017

Animal shelter workers care for domesticated animals that have arrived at the shelter for a variety of reasons. Some animals have been surrendered by their owners while others may have been rescued from abusive situations. Animal shelter workers are passionate about animals with extensive knowledge of various breeds and how to care for them.

Most animal shelters have a variety of animals such as dogs, cats, bunnies, and reptiles. Caring for these animals includes feeding, grooming, exercising, training and spending time with them. Other duties include cleaning up after the animals, administering medication. For a true animal lover, this could be a dream job.

Part of the role of an animal shelter worker is to help re-home the animals in your care. This includes taking photos of each animal and writing a catchy profile on them for the purpose of posting the profile on the shelter website, in the newspaper, and on social media.

An animal shelter worker, it is important to generate interest in animal adoption throughout your community. Once there is interest in adoption, an animal shelter worker will put the potential adopter through a rigorous application and interview process. The primary goal is to ensure that the animal is going to a safe, healthy, life-long home.

Many animal shelters are heavily funded through donations, community efforts, and government. As an animal shelter worker, you will likely spend time with volunteer shelter workers. You may also have open houses for the community to meet some of the animals awaiting adoption.

To gain employment at as an animal shelter worker there is no formal post-secondary education required. A high school diploma or GED will generally be enough. A certificate in animal grooming or training, for example, could be an asset.
