Part-Time Animal Care Technician

The APF is seeking compassionate and energetic individuals to help care for our pet residents! Animal Care Technicians (ACTs) provide care, attention and positive living environments for the dogs, cats and small mammals residing in our shelter. Candidates should be ready to jump right (after training, of course!) in and to help with dog walking, socialization and enrichment of pets, feeding, and cleaning kennels among other duties! We have a great team here and want to be sure that those that join us work well as part of this team as well as have the ability to take initiative when on their own. The APF is very proud of the standards of care upheld by that Animal Welfare Team – this position will be vital in continuing this great work! The animals need care each day of the week, so weekend and holiday hours are required. We hope to hear from you soon!

High School diploma and animal handling experience required. Weekend and holiday hours required. This position is part time. A background check will be required.
