Marketing/Fundraising Coordinator

Cabot Animal Services

Cabot, Arkansas
Start Date: When Filled
Salary: $40,000

Organization

Cabot Animal Services’ (CAS) mission has been to work hard every day to change the public perception of municipal shelters and animal control. We did this through companion pet lifesaving, public education and public visibility. We made sure the citizens of our great city saw us at events, schools, fundraisers, city meetings, and anywhere else we might be able to educate just one more person on the amazing benefits of having an Animal Shelter and Animal Control that a city can be proud of.

Since embarking on this journey in 2013 CAS has reached many milestones including becoming a No Kill City through a live release rate of over 99% and being the first city in Arkansas to pass a No Kill Resolution in 2019

As a progressive shelter we are moving into a new model – the Animal Social Services Model. This model of Animal Services will focus on providing social services and support to assist in keeping animals at home with their owners rather than in the shelter. Securing this human/animal bond is fundamental to building a strong community.
