Productive work place with a great message.
Kennel Technician (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – October 14, 2016
The staff members are great and very passionate about the animals and what we do there. The motivation stems from the determination that is showcased by the manager, supervisor, and board members. You can go into work and work hard; but still have fun and know that when you leave, you're making a difference in the life of an animal.
The hardest part of the job would have to be the work. At the start of the day, kennels have to be cleaned well and in a timely fashion. All dogs must be rotated three times a day and that's where the time management really comes in. When you aren't cleaning kennels, you are feeding animals, working with customers, washing dishes, doing laundry, and assisting other coworkers when need the extra help.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the animals. The shelter gets many animals who are sick, injured, scared, and sometimes the animal could be experiencing all of those examples. Workers get to be the ones who make a change for the better in that animals life. The most awarding thing is to see how the animal changes and getting to watch that animal go to a loving home. That alone is worth all the hard work and sweat that goes into the job.
Friendly staff, work with animals, special events
