  • Assist Clinic Manager in serving as a leader for all clinic staff and volunteers- leading by example and holding whole team accountable for doing the best job possible.
  • Encourage, recruit, help orient/train, and empower volunteers to be an integral part of the clinic operation.
  • Ensure positive adoption experiences for Big Sky Ranch/CATNIP animals and their new owners.
  • Support the foundation of work that has already been established by working within set policies and procedures, and abiding by the mission that no animal will be turned away or euthanized because of space and time constraints while managing resources tightly.
  • Participate in outreach events to deliver low- and no-cost care to those who can't visit us.
  • Work with CEO, Clinic Manager and other staff to set new procedures, evaluate and improve old procedures, and keep Big Sky Ranch/CATNIP Foundation on the cutting edge of low-cost treatment.
