Learned a lot about dealing with animals and how many unwanted animals there are.
Kennel Associate (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYJanuary 31, 2013
Enjoyed working here a lot,basically just took care of animals,reported any illness to vet techs or supervisor.Also dealt with geneal public,people coming in looking for their lost pets or potential adoptions.Tha hardest part,by far, was watching how many animlas were euthanized daily and wanting to take them all home.This was one of the nicest places I worked as regards co-workers and management, everybody was treated really well and they did a lot for their employees with a very limited budget.
Pros
good learning experience.
Cons
being non- profit, the pay wasn't much and only limited full- time jobs.

Sworn Animal Control Officer (Former Employee) –  Lexington,KyMay 11, 2012
I learned a lot about how to handle myself with aggressive dogs as well as aggressive people who own aggressive dogs. I loved everything about the job except the immediate management team. The Chief was knowledgeable, but was used by his sister who also worked there. She was the "woman behind the man" so to say. What ever she asked of brother, or even told brother, you could consider it to be done. Bit they would not allow any one else to have family members get a job there?? Odd..I would still be there if not for those 2..I enjoyed the job itself,
Pros
getting out on the road alone, connected by a radio to dispatch
Cons
management. chief and his sister..
