Current Job Openings
We are always seeking diverse and talented people for animal shelter jobs
with Best Friends to further our mission. Staff frequently comment on
how meaningful it is to work with animals, especially when compared with
their old corporate lifestyle. They talk about what a joy it was to
trade in their heels or loafers for sandals and hiking boots. It's
casual Friday here every day.
With the help of dedicated employees, we can save even more lives. Enjoy this brief introduction to Best Friends that gives you the highlights of our work.
Working with animals at the Sanctuary
Friends is as much a community for its staff as it is a sanctuary for
animals. It's a unique place. Our staff come from many different parts
of the country and many walks of life. Many of us have little or no
family in the area, so we come to rely on each other. Of course, there
is an automatic bond among us because of our common purpose and love of
What else is unique about Best Friends? Well, there
aren't many office environments where dogs and cats can come to work.
The rule at Best Friends is that as long as your pets get along with
everyone else's pets, they are welcome.
A unique pet career in a unique environment
lots of companies have a variety of departments, but how many can boast
that they have a place for old dogs (Old Friends), a room for
special-needs cats (the Incontinental Suite), and a haven for horses and
other farm animals (Horse Haven)? Plus, these and many other
departments are spread throughout a scenic desert setting called Angel
Canyon, hallowed ground to many who visit here. You can hike, explore
Anasazi ruins, sit by the underground lake and contemplate the meaning
of life, or just run with your dogs, all near where you work and live.
