Anderson Humane

Adoption and Resource Consultant
Anderson Humane is a progressive, limited-admission humane society with an annual intake of approximately 4,000 companion animals with a live release rate of 95%. In addition, we provide care for over 3,000 injured and orphaned wild animals annually through our wildlife center. We are a fast-paced organization dedicated to the animals in our care and the people we impact. We emphasize the importance of a flexible work-life balance for our staff and volunteers, and we work hard to create a positive work environment.

Are you passionate about animals and want to make a real difference in their lives? Are you a natural matchmaker? Anderson Humane’s North Aurora location is looking for compassionate Adoption and Resource Consultants who can help our adorable adoptable animals find their forever homes.

Why you’ll love working with us, it’s way more than just a paycheck…

  • You’ll become an integral part of our animals’ daily lives; working hands-on with cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies every day getting to know all their silly quirks and personalities.
  • You’ll play an instrumental role in bringing families and their new furry family members together.
  • Our Consultants start at $17/hour. Add another $1/hour for Spanish fluency.
  • Our Employee Adoption discount because aren’t pets like potato chips? You can’t have just one.
  • We offer a 401(k) program because your retirement only seems like a lifetime away.
  • A flexible schedule including weekdays, weekends, and holidays. North Aurora’s hours: Monday through Friday: 8 am – 7 pm; Saturday: 8 am – 6 pm; and Sunday: 9 am – 5 pm

For those who look forward to the quiet personal time of a commute, we’d love to talk to you about regularly lending a helping hand at our other locations (Bloomingdale and South Elgin)!
