At the Pembina Valley Humane Society, we are driven by our mission to support humane and sustainable communities for all animals through education, advocacy, respect and responsibility.
We are a primarily volunteer-run Society in Morden, Manitoba, which services more than 40 communities in the Pembina Valley, and we are looking for an Assistant Manager for a one-year term (maternity leave) to help meet the needs of our communities and manage our vast volunteer base. Here, your ideas will contribute to achieving our mission; your voice will be heard and valued. So if you have a love of animals, enjoy collaborating with a team yet are a self-starter, are compassionate and detail-oriented, and looking to gain experience to help further an animal-related career (not required), we could be perfect for each other.
The Assistant Shelter Manager leads our team of volunteers who work together to ensure our animals receive the highest level of care whilst they are waiting for their forever homes. The Assistant Shelter Manager, with the Shelter Manager, coordinates adoptions and follow-ups, as well as arranges and monitors animal foster placements. The Assistant Shelter Manager collaborates with the Shelter Manager and the Board of Directors to assess the needs of the shelter, and helps develop the best methods for achieving exceptional service, adoptions, and operational objectives.
