07:00PM 08:00PM Careers in Animal Welfare: Department / Organization: Career CenterUniversity Event Topic: Career DevelopmentCost: FreeLink: https://emory.joinhandshake.com/events/536948Have you ever thought about working with animals? Often, only a few career paths come to mind, including a Veterinarian. But the industry is growing, and needs so much more. This presentation provides an overview of many careers in the pet industry and animal welfare, with a focus on the various skills and volunteer/internship experiences required to work in an area you're passionate about.Join Emory College alumnus, Aaron Fisher, to learn more about Careers in Animal Welfare! He is the Founder and CEO of Atlanta Rescue Dog Cafe Inc., an educational non-profit with a unique mission: to contribute to the well-being of Atlanta’s pets and people to improve human-animal interactions, reduce the incidence of animal cruelty, and relieve the strain on local animal shelters.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Aaron taught elementary school for seven years, spent more than 12 years volunteering and working in animal welfare, and has been working with at-risk youth since the early '90s. He first came to Atlanta in 1993 to attend Emory University, and his love for the city has only grown since. The idea for this innovative project was born from these experiences - his students were often too young to volunteer with animals (but really wanted to learn more about pets); yet, no single organization was primarily dedicated to educating the community about animal welfare, how to care for pets and be safer around animals. His organization's programming now reaches nearly 500 Atlanta students a month, most of whom are in under-served communities. + Virtual Campus Events
