Once again, Whitehaven has found itself in need of a part-time animal caretaker to work in our boarding area!

We are looking for a hard-working, dependable individual who loves animals and would enjoy working with dogs and cats of all sizes.

All applicants must be at least 16 years of age and provide their own transportation.

Shifts will be 3+ hours long (15+ hours per week) in the evenings and on weekends.

Applicants will need to work holidays, which may include some daytime shifts.

Summer especially is our busiest time of year for boarding; so having dependable staff who is available to work a set schedule throughout the summer is a must.

In addition to working with animals, this position requires intensive cleaning skills (including scrubbing, scooping litter boxes and kennels, and picking up after dogs in the yard). The ideal applicant will demonstrate problem solving abilities, be able to work independently, and have the capacity to work outside in all kinds of weather. Our boarding staff is on their feet for their entire shift, excluding their break. Cell phone use during work hours is not permitted. This position also requires occasionally administering medications to pets (with provided training). This job is not easy but can be rewarding.

For more information, call the clinic at (563) 386.9680 and ask for Cindi.
