Cedar Bend Humane Society is looking for a energetic and outgoing passionate animal advocate to join our part-time Adoption Counselor team! Adoption Counselors are the smiling faces that match adoptable pets with new families. You must be capable of handling large dogs and a variety of breeds, have strong customer service skills, and work as a team member.

Kennel Attendant 

Let's get real. Working in the kennels department is hard work. You'll spend most of your day scooping poop, washing dishes, and doing laundry.
But in-between those tasks are the moments that make the sweaty, dirty job all worth it. Those moments are when a nervous dog wags their tail at you for the first time, when a cat crawls into your arms and just wants to held, when you get puppy and kitty kisses for giving them yummy food, and so many more. 

Like we mentioned, it is hard work! Kennel attendants must be able to lift 50 pounds (boxes of litter are HEAVY!) and be comfortable working with both dogs and cats. Duties include, but not limited to: feeding animals, cleaning kennels, cleaning litter boxes, laundry, and keeping indoor and outdoor exercise kennels clean. This job can be fast-paced and physically challenging and will include indoor and outdoor work. Individuals should be self-motivated and dependable.

Apply today to help us with the dirty work but stay for the homeless pets. To apply, please send your resume or letter of intent to Caitlin at cbhskennelsupervisor@gmail.com. We look forward to having you on the team!
