Testimonies from our Staff
Aly, Office Specialist
I love my job! Working with animals everyday? YES. Our goal at the animal shelter is to reunite pets with their owners and seeing those moments happen it’s such warm feeling. The best feeling, however, is seeing animals go to a new loving home. That little sparkle in their eyes – you know they know they’re not alone and will be loved more so than they have ever been. Being able to help the ones without voices warms my heart, especially the most terrified ones that turn around and have complete opposite personalities from when they first came through the door. It’s incredibly rewarding. Yes, this field is an emotional roller coaster and can be stressful at times. But being in an environment where we all colleagues support each other even in their own personal lives lets you know that you are with the right people at the right place.
Stephanie, Animal Services Officer
I love that I am able to not only help animals but I get to help the city and people. I’m able to help reunite animals with their owners and make not only the person happy but the animal happy as well. But the best thing is the way I’ve been able to help educate people.
Danielle, Animal Services Officer
I love that I am the voice for the voiceless and being that voice for the suffering animals give me purpose. Seeing an animal come into the shelter scared and unknowing of human affection and see in their eyes the moment they know the true kindness is a feeling that I will always remember.
