How Do I Use the Site?

Have fun and learn. Perhaps you are considering a career working with animals or would like to advance in your own pet-related career. Perhaps you want to become more involved with animal justice as a volunteer or employee--seeing that those who abuse animals are punished commensurate with their actions. This site will give you ideas and ways to build your resume and cover letter.


The site is not a substitute for legal, medical and other expertise. Recommendations, advice, etc. may not apply in your situation. Do your due diligence. We try our best to avoid, but cannot be responsible for, errors.

I've Never Had a Job With Animals. Where Do I Start?

If you don't know what you would like to do, start by looking over the lists of jobs. Write down any that seem interesting and learn more about them. If you have a sense of what you want to do, use the site to develop a targeted resume that reflects your skills and passions.
