Now Hiring Animal Care Technicians

Homeward Animal Shelter is currently seeking to hire up to 3 Animal Care Technicians (ACTs). Many of our current employees are college students who will be graduating this spring and moving on to full-time careers, leaving us in need of 3 part-time employees to fill the open positions.

We are currently hiring for part-time Animal Care Technicians, 20-25 hours/week. Duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Direct care of the animals within the shelter, including feeding, kennel disinfection, medicating, etc.
  • Working with customers to help them find the pet that fits with their family, answering phones, and general customer service.
  • Driving the shelter van to drop off/pick up animals from local pounds, vet clinics and groomers.

Hours vary from mornings to afternoon/evenings, between the hours of 7am-7pm. Applicants must be willing to work at least 2-3 weekends/month, as well rotating holidays. Animal handling and care experience is preferred, but not required. Also an interest in dog training is a plus, but not a requirement.

If interested, please email resume to Anna at aschaumburg@homewardonline.org or you can pick up a job application at the shelter. Positions will be filled by late April.

Easter Hours

Easter hours

Our hours will be adjusted this Friday-Sunday because of the holiday weekend. Due to an overwhelming turnout each year at the Easter egg hunt at Yunker Farm, we have decided to be open from 4-7pm on Friday, March 25th, so that our customers have room to park. We will be open from 3-6pm on Saturday, as well, to avoid parking lot congestion during the Easter egg hunt. We will be closed on Sunday, March 27th, in observance of the Easter holiday.

Friday and Saturday volunteers are asked to report to their normal shifts. Regular Sunday volunteer shifts are cancelled, however, if you have signed up to work a holiday volunteer shift, please report at the time of the shift you signed up for.

Thank you and have a great Easter!
