Job Description

Job's Peak Vet Hospital Kennel Help 30 hours per week Saturdays required. Will train! 

Kennel assistants, also known as kennel attendants, are entry-level workers who provide basic animal care in environments where animals are caged. A love of animals and the ability to anticipate their needs is necessary for this job. Hours can be irregular, and the position can be emotionally and physically draining. There are typically no formal education requirements for this position though employers may prefer candidates who have previous experience working with animals.

Duties of a Kennel Assistant:

In addition to caring for dogs and cats, kennel assistants may also find themselves in contact with other pets, such as birds and rodents. General duties include keeping cages clean and sanitized; walking, feeding and picking up after the animals; and reporting on the animal's condition to its owner, a veterinarian or rescue workers. Many kennel assistants are put in charge of the bathing, nail trimming and grooming of animals as well. Kennel assistants may also be expected to help with other duties, such as selling pet supplies.
