We are not your ordinary non-profit. We prefer to think of ourselves as an innovative and mission-driven social enterprise. If you can’t tell by now – we like to think outside of the box. And if you do too, we’ll probably be a great match. We are just regular people that have an extreme passion for pets and an idea to change the world for them.
Our marketing team is working hard to change the face of animal welfare and to get the word out about our incredible cause. (Visit our website: www.foundanimals.org to check out what they’ve done!) Collaboration is the way we work best. We believe that a multitude of creative minds working together makes all the difference. We expect you will work hard and play hard. You will interact with a lot of different people and personalities. Some of your office mates will even be walking on all fours – and we’re not talking about that one time at our office game night.

We love pets, but they aren’t the best arbiters for their own cause. Don’t worry, they’re not offended by that. They give us endless love, compassion, loyalty and cuddles. It’s our end of the bargain to give them food, shelter, protection and endless tummy rubs. That’s why it’s our mission to put pets in homes and keep them there – because all pets are meant to be with good people.
