Specific duties include:
Walking dogs near Dogs All Day in SLC
Using clicker training to help them develop positive behaviors
Socializing the dogs with new people
Direct animal handling required.

Our mission is to provide a temporary safe haven for companion animals in order to keep pets and their people together in times of crisis, increase pet retention, and decrease the number of animals entering the shelter system.
Our organization provides temporary emergency fostering services for people experiencing a crisis. We board pets at both a dog boarding facility (yes, even cats!), as well as individual foster homes. As of June 2020 we have reunified over 30 families with their beloved furry family members. We also hosted Utah's first completely free drive-thru vaccination clinic. Our main focus is pet retention and keeping people with their pets.
We'll work with your schedule.
