Kennel Technician (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – April 6, 2016
Management was amazing and very hands on with staff which helped accomplishing goals so much easier. The facility as a whole functioned so great it; amazed me how well everyone worked together. Unfortunately, I was having to share a vehicle at the time and was late consistently and ultimately I had to quit because it was seeming too difficult to get there.

You spend the day here if your volunteering taking care of the cats and dogs here at the shelter in one of several ways. I learned about the maintenance of the cages, and the importance of animal hygiene. The fact that pets have laundry too with their blankets and bedding and that taking them for walks gives them a break from the local surroundings and confinement of the cage as well as how animals are handled when they are sick. The co-workers and other volunteers are friendly and caring, They do their best to find the pets a decent home.

Mite get stuck in the laundry room all day if assigned.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – 78752 – July 13, 2015
The real turn offs were the management not paying attention to reported issues with other workers when an issue was unresolved. They pay was awful. I don't mean awful in the sense that it was just low, I mean it was impossible to live a life of meeting one's basic need expenses. Forget having "fun money" and be ready to fore go any ideas of finances for "emergency fund, retirement or vacation funds. That was really depressing after finally finishing a BFA degree and having no real opportunity for moving upward.
Kennel Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 27, 2016
Because I have volunteered at the Humane Society in San Antonio for a few years, I have learned a great deal from everyone who worked their. We formed a tight bond that I still cherish today. They were always eager to teach me.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – February 29, 2016
I was a volunteer in the spay/neuter division. I helped monitor the animals during recovery, taking temperatures, incubating, washing and packing instruments. I helped with dipping, oral meds, weighing and holding animals for injections and blood drawing.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Stillwater, OK – February 17, 2016
I would come in and clock in and help out first wherever they needed me at the time, that could range from cleaning out dog kennels, to taking one on a walk. I learned with this experience how to deal with different dogs of all sizes. I also learned a lot about team work and how important everyones role is while working together.
VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCES (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 9, 2016
Helping animals is always a fun adventure to jump on. The day started with coming in to help feed, bath and play with the dogs and cats in the shelters. Even sometimes recusing some from horrible living conditions.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Cape Girardeau, MO – January 23, 2016
The conditions aren't always the best inside of the humane society, and it definately doesn't smell the best, but seeing the look on the dogs faces when they can finaly be free from those cages and interact with another living being makes it worth it.
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – El Centro, CA – December 23, 2015
I have loved animals my entire life. The humane society gave me a chance to interact with animals and care for them and make them feel loved. The zoo would be a perfect place for an animal lover like me. All animals deserve too have attention and too feel wanted. I learned that work is hard. It's not easy. You have too put your mind too it and anything is possible.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – February 4, 2016
Overall, being a volunteer was interesting for me because I got to work with animals. I am a huge animal lover and dog lover so I felt comfortable in that type of environment. The people I worked with were nice and I enjoyed washing the blankets for the dogs.
