CAUTION PLEASE CONSIDER FIRST:
Thank you for your interest in Dragonfly Exotic Pet Boarding, However; we have found that in the past, many applicants have had an unrealistic view of what working in a pet kennel/daycare involves.
Please Read Carefully Before Applying for Employment:
First, understand the primary purpose of this facility is to care for other people’s pets when they go to work or on vacation. This means, during summer and all holidays are our busiest times. THERE WILL NOT BE TIME OFF DURING THESE PERIODS! Consider this important fact. If you need to spend CHRISTMAS or other Major Holidays with your family, this may not be the job for you. In addition, this business is seasonal in nature, you can expect work hours and days to vary according to facility needs. The pets must be cared for 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, so weekend work and evening work is a probability. We realize working under these conditions can be pretty difficult for some people, but that is the nature of the business and your DEPENDABILITY in this area is critical. If you don’t think you can be flexible, you should reconsider employment in an animal care facility.
You must have a genuine love for animals, but keep in mind that we are seeking people who are mature and understand the responsibilities we will place on them. You will NOT be paid to sit around and play with puppies and kittens all day. You will be responsible for cleaning up after them, feeding them, administering medications and seeing to their comfort and security. This requires a lot of hard work, maturity and dedication.
When working around animals you will be exposed to: filth, loud noises, cleaning chemicals, a variety of parasites and zoonoses (medical ailments that people can acquire from animals) and the ever present risk of being bitten, scratched or mauled. These are the potential hazards you face and accept when working with animals.
You should also consider--with very few exceptions--there are NO specialists at Dragonfly Boarding. You will be expected to perform any task required of you. We will try to make the best use of your skills and experience, but don’t expect to be exempt from the more mundane and unpleasant chores that need to be performed. Floors need to be mopped, cages cleaned, trash cans emptied, and feces picked up. If you feel ill at the thought of cleaning up diarrhea or vomit, then animal care is not for you. You may be asked to lift a 50 pound bag of animal food by yourself, if this is a problem for you, please reconsider applying for employment. If you are allergic to animal hair or dander, are sensitive to chemicals, now is the time to reconsider submitting an application.
We are looking for mature, patient, reliable, intelligent, responsible and capable of independent action individuals.
We take this profession of animal care very serious, if you wish to work with Dragonfly Exotic Pet Boarding, then you must too. When you are ready to make this commitment, then please proceed by downloading this further instructions will be enclosed.
