*Must be 18 years or older.
Looking for a job you really like and feel good about? Want to work in a compassionate and friendly environment? If you enjoy working with animals and people, this could be the job for you! If you are a college student, TCHS participates in most local work-study programs and has flexible scheduling as your class schedule changes.
Full time positions have a benefit package that contains vacation, sick leave, wellness time, personal days, health insurance, and much more. The biggest benefit of all is knowing you have made a difference in the lives of many animals and people at the end of your work day. Who can put a price on that?
We continually collect applications for the basic part time shelter worker position and only contact people when there is a job opening.
*Must be 14 years or older to volunteer on your own, or as young as 10 years to volunteer with an adult.
Volunteers are essential to everything we do. Shelter volunteers provide hands-on animal care such as grooming, exercising, socializing and keeping the animals company while they wait for their new homes. In addition, volunteers assist with kennel cleaning, general housekeeping and assisting customers. Other volunteer opportunities include off-site adoption events, animal photography, office work/data entry, yard work, building maintenance, newsletter mailings, fundraising events, humane education and pet visits at schools and daycares, senior care pet therapy visits, veterinary medicine, and the Board of Directors. Wherever your talents lie, TCHS welcomes you!
FOSTER CARE OPPORTUNITIES

Please consider opening up your hearts and homes to animals in need this year.
