Animal caretakers work in a variety of settings. Although many work in kennels, others work in zoos, stables, animal shelters, pet stores, veterinary clinics, and aquariums. Mobile groomers and pet sitters typically travel to customers’ homes. Caretakers of show and sports animals travel to competitions. The work of animal caretakers may be unpleasant and emotionally distressing. For example, those who work in shelters may see abused, injured, or sick animals. Some caretakers may have to help euthanize seriously injured or unwanted animals. Depending on their work setting, they may work outdoors in all kinds of weather. Some facilities can be noisy.
