Some quotes from our employees:

My love of animals began as a child. We always had pets in our home including turtles, goldfish, hamsters, stray cats, dogs, bunnies and even a quail that we hatched in an incubator. My recent passion has been basset hounds and my current “children” are Lucy and Teddy. I have worked in several nonprofits as a fundraiser but this is a very special position for me. I am so pleased to be representing an organization with a mission that I am so passionate about. My friends and family always enjoy my stories about what happens at the shelter during a typical workday – puppy accidents in my office, Collin the office cat trying to eat my breakfast, a kitten sleeping on my lap while I’m working, and even the puppy chow I have found hidden in my purse. What a gift to be working around such laughter and love from our furry residents.”
– Sarah Shepherd, Executive Director
There is no better job than one that involves animals.  Working at the shelter is so fun, rewarding and fulfilling.  I love seeing people come in here and find that special animal to call their own.  As a huge animal lover I get to come to work and hang out with all the cats and dogs.  Working here as been the best job I have ever had.”
– Laura Stupca, Shelter Manager
I was looking for a part-time position which helped me feel like a greater part of the Camden-Rockport community, and when I heard about the employment opportunity at CRARL, I couldn’t resist. I remember that during my interview, it was noted that I may have a cat sitting on my lap while I worked, or a dog sleeping under my desk – as if it were an inconvenience. I laughed, and said that I still wanted the job.”
– Sally Russillo, Office Manager

“I started working here while in high school, and after graduation I decided that I really wanted to stay. I have adopted three animals from CRARL, and I feel that we have a great adoption program.”
