DCHS strives to be a welcoming, respectful and inclusive workplace. We know that working in animal welfare can be challenging at times, so DCHS and our staff make a concerted effort to support each other and have fun together. When you join our team, you’ll regularly get the chance to participate in costume competitions (for you and your pets!), bake-offs, trivia nights, and even our volleyball team, the Humaniacs! Join the Wellness Committee and you can try your hand at helping to organize the events your colleagues enjoy. DCHS staff and leadership have also created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee, open to all staff members, that is working to better serve our clients, volunteers, colleagues and all members of our community. Racism and intolerance have no place in our organization or in the more humane future we are building.

Full-time staff also enjoy a generous benefits package including health insurance, dental insurance, 403(B) plan, short-term and long-term disability insurance, and life insurance. Time off includes 2 weeks of vacation, 12 days of sick leave, and 8 paid floating holidays annually, plus 3 days of personal time after one year of employment. Part-time staff earn vacation time based on their average hours worked. We know pets are family too, so your sick leave can be used for veterinary appointments, and you’ll receive discounts on adoption fees and dog training classes. All employees receive discounts on youth day and summer camps. Pet food, medication and animal supplies from DCHS vendors can be ordered for personal use at cost + 10% admin fee.
