Wellness Advocate (Tech)
Job Description

Open-environment kitty sanctuary seeks responsible, experienced vet tech to administer medications, vaccinations, fluids, take weights, trim nails, keep medical records, perform intake procedures, provide veterinary transport, and help with kennel work (scooping, feeding, cleaning) as necessary. This position will mostly be for felines, but there are also some exotics and two dogs to be cared for as well. Must be a team player, happy to help with kennel work and able to lift at least 50 lbs. Experience in a shelter environment is a plus, but an open mind to learn the difference from a clinical setting is key. Must be able to administer medications alone and trim nails without assistance.

Please include the word “boots” in your application so that we know you have read this description thoroughly. The ability to work under pressure and stay calm in an emergency is absolutely essential. Confidence in placing catheters or drawing blood would be awesome but is not mandatory. We look forward to meeting you and seeing if you’re a good fit to help us save lives and find the purrrfect forever homes for our family members!
