In order to enrich the lives of both rescue dogs/cats and senior citizens who need a little help caring for their pets, Desert Paws is starting a Pets 4 Seniors program. Essentially rescue dogs or cats would get a great home and then senior citizens caring for them would have monthly checkups from our volunteer to ensure all is well.

We are seeking a Social Worker, Retired Social Worker or Social Worker instructor to oversee the program and follow up on monthly checkups.

The ideal candidate will have excellent people skills, animal handling skills, knowled, ge of proper care for pets, very open communication, a flexible schedule, and the ability to do checkups in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas.
