Española Humane is transforming the lives of dogs and cats by honoring the love people have for their pets, closing the service gap that exists for people and pets in Española. Española Humane is seeking a compassionate, outgoing, people, and pet lover to lead the community outreach Pet Amigos team.
Pet Amigos is resuming the lifesaving work that began in 2019. In the first six months of the program, Pet Amigos connected with over 200 pet owners and caretakers and provided services for over 400 pets.
The Program Manager will be responsible for restarting the program with hands-on operations. The position requires exceptionally strong interpersonal skills and the ability to forge effective relationships with a wide variety of people in a wide variety of circumstances. Demonstrating sensitivity to the community in which we serve, the manager also needs excellent time management skills and an ability to work independently with a solution-based approach. The ideal candidate is bilingual, people orientated, and committed to life-saving efforts.
The program works on the ground in Española’s neighborhoods to remove barriers to access pet wellness resources, with a focus on spay/neuter. This data-driven program directly reaches underserved areas of the city through door-to-door outreach and building positive relationships with pet owners. Using these strategies, Pet Amigos is making strides towards a community that keeps pets in their homes, reduces pet overpopulation, and empowers pet owners with the resources and information they need to make the healthiest decisions for their pets.
Come be a part of the great work happening in Española!
