Collar-ful Careers Start Here!

While caring for animals in the best way possible is serious business, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun doing it! Get greeted each day with a hello from a cat. Get a warm welcome by a dog’s kiss. Laugh during the day at a co-worker’s animal story-of-the-day. Sure we want our work here to have impressive outcomes but we want it to be meaningful and rewarding, too. Our philosophy is simple: if you can have fun while working hard, our pets are better off while they are here, too.

We’re looking for passionate team members whose talent, care and compassion for people and pets will help make a difference in our community. With your help, we’ll keep our strong foundation of helping pets go home again. Join the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin where, yes, you’ll find challenging work, but also plenty of paws and people to brighten your day.
