Who is the attendant: adoption reception?

The attendant is someone who enjoys working directly with the community and gets a thrill from finding an animal their perfect forever home.

The attendant is someone who thrives on helping others, whether that’s helping a family find the perfect pet, helping new adopters navigate the first few weeks with their new pets, or helping their team stay organized.

The attendant is someone who likes learning new things almost as much as they like sharing what they’ve learned with others.
