My son has been working as an Animal Welfare Officer for about 7 years now. The town he works for has a shortage of officers but they are actively looking to hire more. They have this picture on their homepage and also have this on posters all around town.
My baby is the one with the big smile in the center.
Animal Welfare Officers are not "dog catchers" His daily activities rarely include picking up pets who have just gotten loose from their homes. He spends a lot of time rescuing animals that are abused by their owners.
If you are thinking about getting a pet, check out the wonderful pets that just need a loving home in your local shelter.
And like Bob Barker always said "Have your pets spayed or neutered."
