(US TX) Job opportunity: Sanctuary Animal Caregiver/Maintenance July 31, 2005 4:24 PM

Here is a wonderful opportunity for animal lovers in Texas. *_Job Opportunity_*/ / Job available immediately Position: Sanctuary Animal Caregiver/Maintenance Role: Primarily to provide animal care to over 400 non-human primates, including Japanese snow monkeys, baboons and vervets, at the Animal Protection Institute's Primate Sanctuary in Southwest Texas. Grounds and enclosure maintenance work is also expected. Compensation: $12,000-14,000 per year; on-site accommodation may be available; insurance and other ancillary benefits after probationary period. Closing date: 15th August 2005 or when suitable candidate is found. Personal Specifications: We require a committed, reliable, and hard-working individual who is willing to work outdoors under all weather conditions. Although the work is physically demanding, it is spiritually rewarding. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who has a strong interest in working directly with non-human primates. Our Sanctuary is unique in that most of our residents live freely in large, natural enclosures. For those primates who have been rescued from appalling conditions, watching their rehabilitation and re-socialization, although a challenge, is particularly gratifying. * A responsible, conscientious person committed to the well-being of nonhuman animals. * Experience working with nonhuman animals is preferred. * Experience with small engine machinery (such as mowers, trimmers), basic carpentry or similar work requiring manual dexterity and skills is preferred. * An ability to work on own initiative as well as being part of a team. * The individual must have a US driving license or must obtain one, in order to drive Sanctuary vehicles for job-related functions. The Sanctuary is located in a relatively remote part of Texas. The individual must be self-reliant and prepared to work and live in a fairly isolated location with high heat and humidity for much of the year. How to apply: Send the following: 1) Résumé 2) Three references of people who can vouch for your experience, work ethic and skills (one of whom should be your current or most recent employer). Please include E-mail addresses and phone numbers, if available. Where to send (E-mail is preferred): Nedim C. Buyukmihci, V.M.D. Co-director If you do not have access to E-mail: Animal Protection Institute’s Primate Sanctuary PO Box 25 Dilley TX 78017 / / /*/*/ /**_Memorable Quote_* "Another cat? Perhaps. For love there is also a season; its seeds must be resown. But a family cat is not replaceable like a worn-out coat or a set of tires. Each new kitten becomes [her] own cat, and none is repeated. I am four cats old, measuring out my life in friends that have succeeded but not replaced each other." ~ Irving Townsend «¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤» Susan Roghair - Animal Rights Online, President Established 1997 -=Animal RightsOnline=- In memory of my Sam - In memory of my Molly Girl - «¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤» ["Reprint permission granted by Animal Rights Online ( Animal Rights Online is an animal advocacy group that publishes Animal Writes, a free internet newsletter.
