Short staffed so management makes you work late and past your pay grade a lot without helping. When it's better staffed it's good to work there but it's otherwise very stressful constantly and it's minimum wage for hard labor.

Communication used to be great…. Now upstairs doesn’t communicate with the downstairs people at all. And pay doesn’t compare with other vets In the area

I worked at LHS for several years. Overall, I enjoyed my job there. I started on animal welfare team, became cross-trained in client care, advanced my skills to work with the more difficult dogs, learned the retail store, and eventually became more than proficient in every aspect I was asked. My criticism with employment at LHS isn't the job its self. No, it was not all sunshine and rainbows, it is stressful, emotionally taxing, but for me for many years, the benefits outweighed the down-side. My criticism is with LHS's upper management. From day one of my employment, there was tangible disconnect between the "upstairs" staff, and animal welfare team. When I was hired on, I was promised that there were yearly raises each year you showed loyalty with the organization. Yes, there were, but only in the form of state-mandated minimum wage raises. I was also promised a pay bump for the more skills you possessed within the department (ie: being cross trained kennels & desks), that never happened either. The upper management seemed to have little interest in the goings on with the downstairs. There ended up being some serious safety concerns (ceiling panels falling on 2 employees leading to concussions) and the lack of proper equipment to get the job being asked of us in a time efficient manner to ensure the job was done correctly. When these concerns were brought to the DO & CEO, they were brushed off. The lack of leadership and support from those upstairs lead to a rapid turn over of animal welfare team.

Longmont Humane Society has a lot of problems that have been “hushed”. Yes, it is non profit - not everyone is going to get paid well. Although, other shelters in Colorado are offering more than LHS had to offer for the hard labor that the staff does. Many of the new hires will leave within training week or a few days after because they realize they’re not just handling puppies and kittens. They’re doing the heavy duty work such as cleaning kennels every morning, cleaning fecal, walking dogs 3-4x a day during all the seasons. The office people are NEVER around to help walk dogs besides 2 office staff members that reside upstairs. Otherwise most of the staff don’t even know who the rest of the “higher” ups are. Just the same old 3 supervisors. It’s not just LHS that has issues with staffing - their clinic has a lot of trouble getting new technicians and receptionist on board. It’s like they just get thrown into the clinic without any proper training. I would expect a manager to know how to properly train new hires - I wouldn’t want to bring my animals in to someone who can’t properly medically treat them. Other than that, the animals get taken care of on the shelter and they do eventually find their forever homes. The employees are just treated badly and the office people don’t even know the animals that live there besides kennel staff. They ask for information on a certain animal that they’re going to post onto Social media.

If you are looking for a place to help you get your foot in the door, this is the shelter you want to be at. The team has become such a family. Everyone honestly just wants to help each other anywhere they can. The supervisors are the best. I have never had bosses that actually work..HARD before! If you are entry level, come here. If you have experience come here! You can experience what a real shelter is like. With staff that care and go out of there way to show it.
