Dear Ms. Linda Martin,
I have always had a passion to help animals so when I saw your ad for an adoption counselor, I could not wait to send in my resume.
I believe in making an effort to find abused and abandoned animals new loving homes where they will be cared for. For this reason, I volunteer my services with a local shelter called Arizona Humane Society where I have worked part-time for the last two years.
During this time, I have acquired hands on experience that include:
•Talking with and escorting clients to the viewing area
•Physically handling and playing with animals
•Educating clients on the responsibilities and the joys of owning a pet
•Explaining any special needs associated with each animal along with the things they like
•Assisting in the processing adoption paperwork, collecting fees and performing reference checks
I am computer literate in all MS software and have the ability to quickly learn any programs that I do not already know, including your shelter’s system database. I have a high school diploma and I am currently working on my Associate degree in business, which I feel will help in my quest to interact and reach out to prospective adopters. In addition, I have:
•Studied the different dog and cat breeds to learn their specific behaviors and needs, so I can relay this message to those wanting to adopt
•Learned how to remain calm and provide pleasant conversation even when the situation is an unpleasant or stressful one
•An understanding of the AC&C policies and the adoption process and can adhere to and enforce these policies
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to view your facility and share my knowledge and skills with you in your quest to find homes for needy animals. I can be reached at (333)-560-1436.
