MEET OUR STAFF!

Our staff of eight full time and part time employees works hard every day because they love what they do and want to make a difference for people and animals in our midst.
 

It is often a thankless job, but the fulfillment that comes from saving lives, completing families, enabling happy reunions and giving animals love is irreplaceable!
 

If you would like to join our team, feel free to stop by, say hello and drop off a resume.  We might contact you when needs arise!
 

This is who we are:

DALE, Weekday Kennel Attendant

I'm Dale. I'm autistic, I write weird fiction, and I really love animals.  I have three cats (Pickles, Biscuit, and Cheddar, and no, I have no idea how this theme got started). I used to have a dog named JB (stood for Jellybean), so the theme has been going for a while.  I fostered animals while I was in college (my roommate and I would have anything from cats to dogs to guinea pigs to bearded dragons, sometimes even all of those things at once), but this is the first job I've ever had that involves animals. It's pretty awesome.

DREW, Feline Specialist

Drew began working in animal care at 15 years old as a volunteer for The Nature Conservancy in Connicticut.

After moving to Minnesota, he found work with a company providing humane residential wildlife remove for

for people in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  He started at MVAS in June 2011 after moving to Montana to pursue a slightly quieter life near family, and has been with us ever since.

LESLIE, Office Assistant

As a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, the Mission Valley is where I call home.  Together my husband and I are raising three beautiful children and three adopted fur babies.  Working at MVAS and helping our four-legged friends is the most rewarding job I've ever had!

RAEVA, Shelter Manager

I was born in Casper, Wyoming.  I moved to Montana when I was ten years old and attended school in Charlo, Montana.  As a teenager I volunteered at the Mission Valley Animal Shelter and have always wanted to be part of the team here.  Now I am, and I am extremely happy to be part of this awesome organization.  I love animals, and I am proud to play a small part in helping all these deserving critters find their forever homes.
