DUTIES

Please read before applying, to clearly understand your required position functions

Assignments include loading and unloading donations, general cleaning including kennels, street clean up, and yard work. You may also occasionally interact with our dogs and cats, however, the main focus will be on keeping our building and kennel spaces clean and tidy. Workers are often asked to jump from task to task as priorities shift throughout the day. Please be flexible and prepared to be busy! Work environments include an indoor climate-controlled shelter and uncovered outdoor spaces.

  • Provide proof of citation.
  • Must indicate on the application, the name of who will receive your hours, their email address, and phone number (example: probation officer, diversion program, not you or your parent).
  • If you are between 16-17 years old, a parent must accompany the minor to sign release forms when checking in on the first day.
  • Community Service workers must arrive on time, on your selected schedule day for a meeting and tour before your day begins. If you arrive more than 5 minutes late, you will be unable to earn hours that day. Please plan ahead to ensure you will be on time for your shift and report to the front office to sign in.
  • We expect you to treat animals in our care with kindness and concern for their welfare, always having their safety and best interest in mind.
  • Please represent yourself and Mostly Mutts in a professional manner and treat potential adopters, visitors, staff, volunteers, and other workers with respect.

COMMUNITY SERVICE SHIFT SCHEDULES OFFERED

Monday – Friday | 10:30 am - 4:30 pm or 5:00 pm – 9:30 pm 
Saturday and Sunday | 8:30 am – 9:30 pm (available as 3 split shifts)

On weekdays, you have flexibility in the time you leave, but not in the time you arrive. You must adhere to your designated leave time. Leaving early will count as a call-out.

There is no flexibility on weekends or evening shifts. You must work the entire duration of hours.

You will manage your shifts online. A text notification goes out immediately to your management team, informing them that you will be coming in/calling out. Please make sure that if you choose to sign-up for a shift, that you are committed to coming. Removals online count toward callouts.

Last-minute cancellations prevent us from properly scheduling help. If you call out after 8:00 PM the day before you are scheduled, we reserve the right to terminate you from the program. We only accept removals before 8:00 PM the night prior to your shift.

You must log hours by clocking in and out of our web-based portal, VicTouch. You should also use a Mostly Mutts' timesheet or your own to track your hours. Hours will only be signed off by one of our shelter managers. You are responsible for ensuring your timesheet is signed daily at the end of your shift. Mostly Mutts does not keep a record of these hours. If your timesheet is lost or VicTouch logs are inaccurate, you must perform the hours again.

DRESS CODE

A Mostly Mutts T-shirt and name tag should be worn at all times. Please do not wear excessively tight or revealing clothing. No bare midriffs or chests, please. Proper undergarments are required.

For safety reasons, we ask that workers do not wear hoop earrings or open-toed shoes (NO flip flops or sandals allowed). Also, please dress accordingly for the weather, as part of your shift may be spent outside. We also use cleaning products with bleach and sometimes get jumped on by muddy pups, so please wear practical clothes, that can withstand becoming dirty or ruined.

Thank you for considering Mostly Mutts for your Court Ordered or Prior to Court Community Service.
