We’re looking for a seasoned shelter professional who is ready to roll their sleeves up and apply their years of shelter operation and animal care experience to a program that is designed to scale humane, community-centered practices to shelters of every type.
If you share our passion for supporting shelters in reaching their goals through inclusion, transparency, organizational wellness, purpose-driven innovation, and barrier-busting programs, we’d like to learn more about your experience and vision for community-based animal sheltering.
What your role would look and feel like
Each member of our outreach team has an area of interest that together allows us to offer shelters well-rounded support. You’ll be lending your operational and animal care expertise to round out a team of veterinarians specializing in data analysis, facility design, housing, behavior & enrichment, infectious disease management, free-roaming cat programming, and Capacity for Care. You’ll be visiting shelters in person, working with shelter personnel through phone, Zoom and email, and participating in our online training courses hosted in the Learniverse.
Is this opportunity speaking to YOU?
Do you love working with animals but find one of your superpowers is supporting and mentoring people? Do you know firsthand how satisfying it is to streamline processes and remove barriers for staff, animals, and the communities we assist? Are you ready to take what you’ve learned and pass it along to your California colleagues? Let’s talk about transitioning into the next chapter of your career where you’ll scale the number of animals you help by coaching, supporting, and serving the people that care for them.
We are committed to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
Remote work is an option but the candidate must live in California (preference for those with roots and experience in California) or be willing to relocate.
At least 4 years of experience in organizational operations management (non-profit, government or similar) is required, with some significant experience in animal shelter management/operations.
