CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments


Because shelter work is difficult and sometimes unpleasant and because we are unable to pay our staff the wages we all believe they deserve, we have a fairly high staff turnover. We have addressed this by instituting annual bonuses to better compensate our staff and providing for paid time off after six months of employment. Each member of our staff is entitled to adopt a pet from us with the adoption fee being waived. We added other 'perks' such as an occasional staff lunch, and we have made efforts to include staff in such areas of our work as attending conferences, writing appeal letters and attending remote adoptions to have the staff feel they are a part of the total operation.
