Veterinary Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 4, 2018
Overall I loved the Humane Society, I wish I was still working there but sadly I believed after I was hired the metaphorical ball was drop with their training. The person I originally interviewed with left soon after I was hired so there was a new superveiser who I did not have immediate contact with & could not rely on to help me with my short comings in a timely & appropriate manner to learn from. I am in no way blaming HSI, they are absolutely amazing I just wish all the kinks could’ve been worked out & also there was more communication with supervisors.
Paid time for lunch, volunteer presents, Pto, guaranteed 40 hours a week, discounts, pet care, etc.

Humane Society of East Tennessee is a great animal shelter to volunteer at. Helping the community through volunteering at this organization really makes an impact through helping the animals get off the streets and into nice homes.
Caretaker (Former Employee) – Lancaster, OH – February 22, 2018
I love taking care of the animals that we had, never had any troubles at work and I did everything I was suppose to when they told me to do it and I got along with everyone that worked there like I do every job I have had but it was only volunteer work so I wasn't getting paid.
Animal Care Technician (Former Employee) – Chestertown, MD – February 15, 2018
Everyone who walks through the door always is surprised. It’s not all puppies and kittens. It’s a very demanding job not just on your body but also emotionally. You have to be prepared to walk dogs who most of the time have no idea what a leash is. Be ready when a cat decides he or she isn’t happy but scared and ready to attack. You need to learn how to read animals body language or you can and most likely come out the door on a daily basis with scratches. But in the end to see those animals find a loving family is the best thing in the world.
Manager (Former Employee) – Geneseo, IL – February 4, 2018
The work here might not have been much and the hours weren't the best but it was still a great place to work. I felt very comfortable here, everyone was like a part of a big family. I absolutely loved this job and working with the animals.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – February 1, 2018
I was a volunteer as a Camp Counselor over the summer. The training I was given was exceptional and even though it was one of my first experiences working around children I was able to adapt to the environment quickly. I learned responsibility and workplace communication as well as regularly making sure the area was clean. It was a very good experience
Volunteer Student Employee (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – January 22, 2018
It was a blast working with them. They mad sure to help you when needed and they are very kind people. The work was simple and they made sure to give you the information you needed. The animals were well kept and the sweetest they could be. I really enjoyed Volunteering for them.

You would have to get up early to help with the cleaning. Overall it is really fun and enjoyable. You get to help animals find their homes with families. Most morning there are so many people to help clean, that all you have to do is play and cuddle with the animals.
Kennel Assistant (Former Employee) – Tega Cay, SC – January 13, 2018
I loved working with all of the animals at the humane society and the people weren't bad either. I only ever had one issue and it was when an employee brought their kids to work but other than that it was great
