NCAL’s Animal Care (AC) associates are hands-on with the animals we care for and thus responsible for the daily care, exercise and cleaning of animals and their enclosures. On average, there are 30+ animals to care for each day, each having arrived under different, and often stressful circumstances. NCAL’s staff strives to provide a calm, healthy, comfortable space which will allow the cats, kittens, dogs and puppies to adjust to their new environment. Staff are expected to perform daily duties in accordance with shelter protocols to keep themselves, the animals, fellow staff members, visitors, and volunteers safe. AC staff routinely work with cleaning agents such as disinfectant, bleach, and other cleaners, and must be able to lift at least 50lbs. We are looking for someone who is a real team player, strong work ethic, commitment to our mission and who demonstrates compassion for animals and humans alike. The position requires customer service skills, teamwork and attention to detail. See complete job description here.
