Shelter hiring

December 19, 2016

The HUMANE SOCIETY of CHEROKEE COUNTY is seeking Animal Caretakers to feed and water dogs and cats, clean dog pens and cat rooms, etc.

To be considered, applicants must have at least a GED or high school diploma, be able to lift and carry 50 pounds, and have reliable transportation and a working cell phone.

This is a MANUAL LABOR type job.

Animal Caretakers are expected to work during inclement weather such as heavy rain or snow/ice storms and be able to withstand the HEAT in the summer and COLD in the winter.


Instead, email with your name, a working phone number, and a resume.

Thank you.

Featured Rescue: Danke

Meet Danke!


Labrador Retriever Mix • Adult • Female • Large

Danke (pronounced don-ka) is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She’s great with kids, loves people and is outgoing. Her breed is best guess, possibly some Boxer. She is getting along well with her kennel mate, Wilbur. She has 4 white ‘socks’! You can come and visit her if you like, or take her for a walk, while she waits for her permanent home.
Besides standard shots, dogs are de-wormed, vaccinated for bordetella, heartworm tested, and microchipped!

Apply to adopt Danke.

Featured Rescue: Lucky

Meet Lucky!


Terrier Mix • Young • Male • Medium

Lucky is a very lucky dog because he was rescued! He’s friendly and playful and can’t you just see him romping with a child or two, or another pooch? Lucky is guesstimated to have been born around April 2014. His favorite place to be scratched is his belly and he’ll melt to the ground for that love.
Besides standard shots, rescues are de-wormed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped.


Apply to adopt Lucky.
