Application for Animal Shelter Board Member

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Animal Control Director with 8 years of experience in local government and humane society settings, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Senior Animal Control Officer at Sunnybank County Council, where I lead a team of 7 in responding to complaints about animal abuse/neglect, as well as emergency police calls. This entails setting traps, removing dead animals, euthanizing animals, and completing paperwork. I am used to dealing with uncontrolled animals, emotional owners, and members of the public. This builds upon my time as an Animal Welfare Worker at Halliwell Humane Society, where I processed incoming animals, fed them and administered medication, and oversaw the adoption process.

In addition to my experience, I hold a Level 3 Animal Welfare Officer Diploma. My performance reviews reflect my excellent communication, interpersonal, conflict resolution, and decision-making skills, as well as my ability to quickly defuse tense situations and negotiate satisfactory resolutions. 

I am eager to progress in my career by stepping into a Board position. I believe that I have the background, experience, and skills to uphold the mission, charter, and legal responsibilities of the Board, to ensure a strong link between the Board and community, to responsibly manage financial and non-financial resources, and to effectively promote the good work of the organization. 

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Amy Parker
