Nice to help
Volunteer (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAJuly 1, 2014
Pros: working with dogs, nice people
Cons: dogs barking non stop
I was a volunteer and it felt really good to help the dogs. I would volunteer once or twice a week. Usually I would clean the dog kennels and then pick one or two dogs to bathe and groom. The woman running the bath area was really nice and gave a lot of tips. The only bad experience I had was with one of the higher ups....When I went to go get proof – more... of my hours she was VERY indignant. She made it obvious that I was a bother to her even though I was the one helping out and not even getting paid. – less

Pet Care Associate (Former Employee), Topeka, KSMarch 30, 2014
Pros: nothing its a non-profit facility
Cons: short breaks
- energetic and caring

- I learned that you can tell that a dog has heart worm by using an x ray and it will show light shadows in their heart or they give them a blood test and they use a microscope to determine if the animal has heart worm.

- Making sure every animal kennel is cleaned with a fresh clean blanket.

- My co-workers are very helpful – more... when it comes to teamwork.

- Getting the big dogs out of the cage because they are really excited to get out and roam around the building.

- playing ball with the dogs and using a mouse teaser cat toy for the cats. – less

Time passed slowly and days were filled with animals.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Walker, MIDecember 30, 2013
A typical day at the Humane Society was filled with animals and taking care of them. I learned here on cleanliness in the work environment as many of these animals had problems and thus we had to make sure that we washed our hands after caring for each one. Management usually consisted of an overseer of a particular area to make sure all the animals – more... were doing ok. My co-workers were usually spread out and thus I had little interaction with them. The hardest part of this job was that each animal had to cared for in a different way meaning I had to remember each animal's specific needs. The most enjoyable part though was in working with these animals. – less

Helping out the animals
Volunteer (Current Employee), Clarksville, TNNovember 25, 2013
What I have learned from Humane Society is that having a wide range of experience is great. Working with adolescent, children and adults is a fun and learning experience. Each experience helps me grow professionally. The hardest part of my jobs is trying to get the parents or children to understand that we are their to help them. The enjoyable part – more... of my jobs is being able to help as much people as I can. – less

Volunteer (Former Employee), Kailua-Kona, HISeptember 30, 2013
Pros: happy people to work with, nice area for breaks
Cons: no cons
My typical day at the humane society would be to sign in, put a apron on, and care for the animals. I would clean the cat area were we would work, sweep, and wipe the tables. I would clean the cat cages, play with the cats, and make then feel loved. I would also clean the dog feces, and give the dog's treats and give then a walk in the park area in – more... the humane society.
Volunteering at the humane society, I learned how to take care of the animals.
The management at the humane society was nice and friendly. If needed help, they would give it to you. They were always kind and always did what they had to do in there job,
I think that the most enjoyable part of the job was being with the animals. I love animals and I would always like to take care of them. I also liked working with the people there. they were always so nice to me and I really enjoyed my time there. – less

Productive and good place for animals.
Volunteer (Former Employee), JonesboroAugust 26, 2013
Pros: the animals and the people.
Cons: the distance
Even though I have only had less than 24 hours at the Humane Society, I want to tell you about my day there. I started out in the cat room grooming the lithe beauties for 30 minutes to an hour then I went to the kennel and saw a Corgi in bad need for grooming which I did with some help until Lunch the poor thing still was not done. After Lunch I walked – more... the dogs in the kennel until 2 in the afternoon. The co-workers were really nice always willing to help.The hardest part with being there was walking out at the end of the day without a cat or a dog. The most enjoyable part was helping those people and animals in need. – less

Worest Humane Society EVER!
Adoption Specialist (Former Employee), Bainbridge, GAAugust 19, 2013
Do not miss working there. Manager like to micro-manage everything you do so no matter what you do you are wrong. Also the building is next to the water treatment plant so it always stinks. The buildings where built as cheeply as they could have been so it is dark and wet and a lawsuit just waiting to happen.
