Are you a lover of animals, and people too? Then you might just be interested in our volunteer position of Customer Service Representative! At Valley Humane Society, our customer service representatives (CSRs) embrace and exemplify our vision, our mission and our values. CSRs create a welcoming space in our facility, act as a trustworthy source to the public, present information in a non-threatening way and provide a direct, positive and personal experience to Valley Humane customers, potential adopters and community members. CSRs suspend personal judgement and give customers the benefit of the doubt.

The ideal CSR has a customer service, reception, or retail background and must be comfortable interacting with different types of people in person, over the phone, and sometimes by email. You should be professional in demeanor and flexible to roll with the unexpected. With additional training, this role can lead to the volunteer position of Adoption Counselor and you can learn how to complete adoptions on your own. Must be at least 18 years old. This position is based on an interview process.
