Calling all animal lovers: jobs with kittens and moreIf you love animals, but didn’t spend years studying biology or veterinary medicine, there’s still hope!
It’s been proven that looking at pictures of cute animals boost your mood and, if done at work, can even increase productivity. But why just look at photos of animals when you can work with them instead? If you love animals, but didn’t spend years studying biology or veterinary medicine, there’s still hope! Here are some jobs to explore if you’re looking to work with animals.
Cat Café Barista
Cat Cafes have become a craze with the first one popping up in London about five years ago and dozens following suit across the country. This isn’t your typical barista job. Yes, you’ll have to make and serve coffee, but you’ll also have to care for the cats, get to know them and introduce them to the customers. Coffee and cats? Sounds like a win-win.
Dog Daycare Assistant
Many privileged pooches spend their days at doggie daycare while their humans are off at work. If you love dogs, this is an ideal job for you – lots of time for cuddling, walking and playing fetch. But it’s not all fun and games, most dog daycares will teach you how to train dogs, read their body language and even perform doggie first-aid.
Working at the Zoo
You don’t have to be a zoologist to work at the zoo. The zoo is an organization just like any other and requires administrative, finance, customer service, marketing and other functions too. The upside? Zoo employees usually get insider perks. Search “zoo” on Jobrapido.com to see what positions are open at zoos near you.
Pet insurance officer
Many pet owners opt for pet insurance to cover costs from the vet. While you may not work with pets directly in this role, you do get to help their owners through a difficult time. Genuine care for animals and people is a requirement in this job.
