Espanola Humane wants your help to save lives!

Pet Amigos Assistant

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 join the community outreach Pet Amigos team.

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.

The Pet Amigos team is adding the position of Program Assistant, who will support and grow the program operations by transporting pets for services from the community to the clinic and TNR (trap-neuter-return for feral cats). The position requires exceptionally strong interpersonal skills and the ability to forge effective relationships with a wide variety of people under a wide variety of circumstances. Demonstrating sensitivity to the community in which we serve, the team member also needs excellent time management skills, an ability to work independently with a solution-based approach.

The ideal candidate is bilingual, people orientated and committed to life-saving efforts.

Come be a part of the great work happening in Española!
