I would like to introduce myself a little and my experience with animals. I have worked very closely with animals and medicating and rehabilitating them for years. I volunteered at the largest agriculture animal rescue in new England for 8 years but had to stop going last year because of getting a full time job. I was one of the main people that was in charge of medicating all the new animals when they come in and getting them healthy to adopt them out to their forever homes. There was three other people and myself that was in charge of cleaning up after 20+ puppies/ kittens AM and PM such as, cleaning up their kennels, feeding, medicating, socializing, then repeat at lunch and dinner times. We had a lot of puppies come in sick such as parvo virus and we would medicate them and use all quarantine processes to keep all of our other animals healthy. I know how to clips nails, give vaccines, saline IV, microchip dogs and cats, retrain animals, check for fleas, bathe animals, and other small stuff. I also cared for 60+ horses. Some horses needed medication every day or they all needed to be fed morning and night. I own my own dog and three horses.
My responsibilities at the rescue was to take care of the horses, dogs, cats, goats, sheep, pigs and any other animal we rescued and cared for. My typical day started at 8:30 AM to 6 PM and usually later, until all the animals were fed and cleaned up after. I would get there and 3 other people that I worked with would get there and we would clean all the puppies kennels (usually about 20 puppies at a time) then feed them breakfast. Then we would take mom dogs out for their walks and feed them. We would then medicate all of the puppies and kittens that would need medication. Once that was done we would go over into the indoor where we had the special horses or new and quarantined ones that only we could care for at the time until they were rehabilitated enough to go into "general population" that's whats we called it. The rest of the farm has about 60 horses. At lunch and dinner we would do the whole processes over again. I was there at least 6 days a week and I lived about an hour away from there and was only a volunteer. I would microchip, vaccinate, give medication, saline IV check for fleas, bathe, trim nails, clean up after, feed, etc. I dealt a lot with sick animals, the main sickness was parvo in the puppies. I learned so much at Live and let live farm. I went on a lot of rescues and have seen a lot of sad cases but we would take that sad helpless animal and show them that there is more to life and its amazing to see how fast they realize there safe now. I also helped in adopting out the animals and matching families with a puppy or a kitten that I felt that would match each other. It was very rewarding seeing that animal get adopted and going home forever with their new family.
This is a seasonal job that I worked 3 seasons now. The first season I worked with the ponies and did pony rides all day. The next two seasons I worked in the kitchen making donuts and baked goods. I learned a lot of costumer service there. I would either being bagging donuts or stocking the store and talking with costumers.
My responsibilities are to let boarding dogs out first thing in the morning at 7:30 AM and then check daycare dogs in and get them into the daycare room. Once all the daycare dogs get to the kennel I will make groups for them the play in during the day. You have to know every dog because a lot of them do not get along and you can not put them together. Around 8:30 AM we all head outside and we stay out there until 11:30 and bring them back into daycare where they get put back into their own kennel. If they get lunch then I will give them all their lunches, check waters and latches. I go on my lunch and then in the afternoon same thing until about 3 PM. At 3 I will get cleaning supplies ready to clean the daycare room. What I do is scrub each kennel chain link walls, scrub the bed, mop the floor, squeegee and then put the bed back down and a new blanket and water in. Once I'm done ill put new bags in the poop buckets outside since we pick up poop all day when their outside. Then the parents start showing up and the office person will grab the owners dog and bring them out. That is the normal kennel technician responsibilities. There is always cleaning though.
