About THE HUMANE SOCIETY FOR GREATER SAVANNAH: The Humane Society for Greater Savannah(HSGS) is a tax -exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization, founded in 1962. Unlike government-supported animal shelters, like Chatham County Animal Services, the Humane Society for Greater Savannah cares for owned animals, those living as pets in homes in Chatham, Effingham, and Bryan counties. With county shelters struggling to manage their overcrowded facilities, we actively work with animal welfare organizations across our state to bring animals into our care to find them loving homes here in Savannah. Our mission is to better the lives of pets and people. Do you love working with people as much as you love animals? Do you want your work to be more than just a paycheck; you want to make a difference for people and their pets? Are you are a great communicator who can give directions to places you’ve never visited? Do you enjoy a fast-pace and thinking on your feet (even when sitting down)? Do you celebrate cleanliness and order? Then come work for the Humane Society for Greater Savannah – we’d love to have you join our team! Learn more about us at http://www.humanesocietysav.org/.
