No matter how you look at it, working for an animal shelter is a very challenging job. It can be both physically and emotionally demanding, but more than anything else, it can be the most rewarding career you can undertake.

When you work for Animal Aid you become part of a progressive organisation that is in the unique position to offer a diverse range of employment opportunities to a broad section of the community. Due to this diverse nature, roles range from hands on animal handling through to administration and veterinary positions.

We are passionate about advocating the adoption of companion pets, working to address the issues associated with animal overpopulation and abolishing sub-standard animal breeding practices. Animal Aid is an organisation that chooses to be great, not big! Our staff and volunteers have chosen to dedicate our time and skills to this vital and worthwhile cause.

This focus is replicated in all of our business arms as we aim to cater for the needs of every aspect of pet ownership. Our business arms include:

  • Animal Welfare Services and Pet Adoptions
  • Veterinary Clinic servicing both shelter animals and private clients
  • Dog training and socialisation
  • Boarding Kennels and Cattery
  • Professional Grooming Services
  • Community Education

Within each of these departments there are occasionally highly sought after employment opportunities. If you think that you are made of the right stuff and can enhance our dynamic team, check out our job listings here.
