What we’re looking for
The Koret Shelter Medicine Program is on a mission to ensure no healthy or treatable animal is euthanized in a California animal shelter and instead receives the right care, at the right time, in the right place, to the right outcome.
To do this, we’re offering the veterinary support, leadership training, and financial resources needed to protect and promote the human-animal bond for ALL Californians through the California for All Animals (CA4AA) program. We’re looking for someone to help lead the CA4AA program and institutionalize the core initiatives that both expand access to animal care services and promote equity within shelters and through the services they provide to their communities.
Funding for change
On the surface, CA4AA is a $50M, five-year grants program with one clear objective: eliminate unnecessary euthanasia in California animal shelters. Underneath you’ll find a comprehensive program designed to meet shelters where they are and offer assistance that goes beyond financial support to address root problems that erode foundations and prevent organizations from scaling their best interventions.
In your role, you’ll be working closely with the California State Director, KSMP Outreach Team, and animal shelters to identify and remove barriers that keep animals from people and people from accessing shelters. Through expert-led online training, onsite consultations, virtual community gatherings, and financial support, you’ll connect shelter personnel to the resources they’ve identified as necessary to achieve their goals. You’ll work with organizations from application to the implementation of their vision, facilitating, documenting, overseeing and analyzing the entire funding cycle.
Is this opportunity speaking to YOU?
Are you passionate about large-scale collaboration united around a shared vision that begins at the community level?
If you have a heart and mind that is called to social services work, if you’re a born organizer, connector, elevator, advocate, communicator and general scaler of the good, we’d like to meet you and discuss how this role might benefit from your unique skill set.
We are committed to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
This position can be remote, though it is highly desired that this candidate lives in California currently or is willing to relocate to California, with a preference for those with roots and experience in California communities.
Applicants should have at least 4 years of experience in organizational operations management (non-profit, government or similar), with some significant experience in animal shelter management/operations.
