105.7 The X is proud to have teamed up with the local animal shelter TAPS, to bring you a pet that is looking for its forever home! The Tazewell Animal Protective Society (TAPS) Animal Adoption Center and Shelter is a no-kill shelter that gives dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens a home until permanent homes can be found. They are located in Pekin just outside of Peoria. This week instead of introducing to one of their pets, Executive Director Holly Crotty wanted me to spread the word that they are trying to fill some job openings. If you’re an animal lover and meet the qualifications then this just might be the place for you!
Here’s what TAPS has available:
Volunteer Coordinator position Will work to recruit, coordinate, and mange volunteers, will oversee our weekly Bingo fundraiser as well as coordinate and manage our off-site adoption events, will be responsible for some public relations and fundraising responsibilities as well as administrative duties. It will be necessary for candidate to work evening and weekend hours.
Part-time Vet Tech We currently have an opening for a vet tech to work 3 days per week including every Sunday and Monday as well as one additional day per week. Previous vet tech experience is required. Please no phone calls or in person submissions.
