Animal Care & Adoptions Associate (Full-time, Exempt)
NCAL’s Animal Care and Adoption (ACA) associates are responsible for two distinct but related sets of tasks – the daily care and cleaning of animals and their enclosures and professional customer care of clients relinquishing animals, prospective adopters and daily visitors. On average, there are 45 animals to care for each day, each having arrived under different, and often stressful circumstances. NCAL’s staff strives to provide a 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 protocols to keep themselves, the animals, fellow staff members, visitors, and volunteers safe. ACA staff routinely work with cleaning agents such as disinfectant, bleach, and other cleaners, and must be able to lift at least 50 lbs. repeatedly throughout the course of a day.
ACA staff are responsible for providing an excellent customer experience; assisting customers with the intake process, greeting and working with prospective adopters through the matchmaking process which includes conveying information about animal care and completing all required forms, correctly entering data into NCAL’s animal database (PetPoint) and conducting post-adoption follow-up calls.
We are looking for someone with compassion for animals and human beings, and a commitment to the mission, values, and goals of NCAL. The position requires mature customer service skills, teamwork, and attention to detail.
Email resume, cover letter and three references to email@example.com. No phone calls please. We regret that the number of applicants allows us to respond only to those candidates who we are interviewing.
North Country Animal League is an equal opportunity employer, committed to values of diversity and inclusion.
