Animal Shelter - Auxiliary Opportunities 

The City of Delta is seeking enthusiastic candidates with a passion for animal care for the positions of Animal Shelter Attendant and Animal Shelter Clerk. These are auxiliary opportunities that may be required to work non-standard hours (evenings, weekends).

Animal Shelter Attendants will feed, handle, and care for impounded animals, as well as clean kennels and cages, carry out routine facility cleaning and maintenance, and perform routine clerical tasks. Forming an excellent working relationship with volunteers and the public is necessary for this role. Successful candidates may also be required to administer routine medical treatments and handle animals with a range of different temperaments. Experience working with animals is preferred, as well as coursework in veterinary assistance, animal behaviour and/or training.

Animal Shelter Clerks will provide support to Animal Shelter Attendants in the feeding, handling, and care of impounded animals while acting as the point of public contact within the Shelter. This is a clerical role that maintains Shelter records, completes correspondence, provides direction to volunteers, and handles payments made for dog licences, animal impounding, owner surrender, and adoption fees. Experience working in a clerical setting is preferred with skill in typing rapidly and accurately (minimum of 45 wpm), as is completion of a Veterinary Office Assistant certificate program.

Both roles require a valid Class 5 BC Driver’s Licence.
