Opportunity Details: Hospital Recovery Volunteer
|Adrienne Thorp, Volunteer Coordinator, Georgian Triangle Humane Society; Phone: 705-445-5204 ext 230; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The GTHS Animal Hospital contains an Operating Room, Treatment Room, Examination Room, Pharmacy and X-Ray Room and a Hospital Intake/Recovery Area, and provides spay/neuter surgeries for over 1500 homeless pets annually. Having an onsite hospital ensures animals receive timely, thorough and comprehensive care, saves dozens of daily phone calls, reduces trips back and forth to veterinary clinics, dramatically decreases the stress on GTHS animals, and leads to the additional benefit of earlier adoption availability; so these animals find their forever home quickly. The GTHS Animal Hospital also assists local pet owners in need by providing essential vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries for their pets.
Reporting to the Director of Medicine and Hospital Registered Veterinary Technician, the Hospital Recovery Volunteer will be responsible for maintaining an orderly Recovery Room, assisting with recovering patients and the movement of animals.
