Their Voice Rescue, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is looking to hire for the full-time position of Manager of Operations. We are headquartered in Delaplane, VA on a beautiful 50-acre dog sanctuary.


“Let’s Speak for Those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves.”

 

Our objective at Their Voice is to save as many dogs as possible from kill shelters nationwide and place them in forever homes. We network with other shelters and rescue efforts to bring dogs into our rescue. Additionally, we aim to bring awareness to, and advance the efforts of, ending the Yulin Dog Festival and other acts of animal slaughter/cruelty stateside and around the world.

 

The Manager will work closely with the Founder of TVR in continuing to expand the scope of Their Voice Rescue. In addition the Manager will work closely with the Head of Animal Care to ensure the dogs medical and emotional needs are being met. Staff management, adoption oversight, networking, community outreach, volunteer coordination/training, fundraising and hands-on daily care of the dogs are all important aspects of the role. Clear, kind, direct communication is paramount.


Applicants should be aware that some of these dogs have not come from the best of circumstances - they will need more compassion, care and patience than dogs at the typical shelter or rescue; however, they will return the care they receive with great affection. We request that applicants have experience with multiple dogs that have not necessarily met each other before and might be extremely vocal. Though this is meant to be a warm, welcoming stop on the way to a forever home, we want the dogs to feel as though they are home. We wholeheartedly believe in positive training and reinforcement.


It could go unsaid that applicants must love dogs; they must also know, and understand, the hard work that goes into taking care of up to 30 dogs at a time.

• Excellent organization skills, with references to validate 

• Ability to multitask and prioritize tasks under pressure

• At least two years of experience working with an animal care, rescue or shelter organization

• Valid Driver's License
