President & CEO — Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) (Phoenix)

August 2, 2020
Position Description:

ABOUT THE ARIZONA ANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE (AAWL): The Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. Since it was founded in 1971, AAWL, located in Phoenix, has been carrying out its mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs and cats that have been surrendered, abandoned, abused, and neglected. As the community's leading source for pet adoptions, AAWL also offers affordable veterinary care and dog training to the public, to support the community and reduce animal surrenders. It also focuses on educating the next generation of animal advocates while teaching compassion for all living things to people of all ages.

AAWL'S MISSION: Serve as a resource to the community to promote the rescue, re-homing, and compassionate care of companion animals through all stages of their life. 

AAWL'S VISION STATEMENT: To be the community's leading source for pet adoptions, affordable veterinary services, volunteer opportunities, humane education and expertise in animal welfare.

AAWL'S SERVICES & PROGRAMSOver the past 49 years, AAWL has grown from adopting out a handful of animals each year to finding forever homes for more than 4,000 dogs and cats each year from our main shelter, our Chandler Mall location and several PetSmart stores. We are a full-service animal welfare organization and leader in innovative behavior training, medical care, adoption, education, and community outreach. Today, our shelter has an onsite veterinary clinic, kennels with a separate cattery, a training center, and a freestanding infirmary.  Almost one-third of our adoptions take place in a high-end mall where we replaced a former retail pet store.   We also have a foster parent network of approximately 100 families who provide care and shelter in their homes for animals that are too young to be adopted and those that are recovering from medical procedures or that need socialization before adoption.

At AAWL, we pride ourselves on treating each animal as an individual and ensuring that they receive the best care, including specialized medical treatments and procedures, often referring them to specialists when necessary.  We have funding in our "Medical Miracle" fund to help support this "above and beyond" medical treatment.  We also have an "AAWL Cares" program which helps subsidize low-income clients who require low-cost veterinary care for their pets.

ABOUT THE PRESIDENT & CEO POSITION: AAWL's President and CEO is the key management leader of AAWL, leading a staff of 100 people to carry out its mission and managing an annual budget of more than $5 million. 

AAWL consists of a shelter that houses more than 250 dogs and cats; a full veterinary clinic for the care of shelter animals, a low-cost veterinary practice that is open to the public; a robust volunteer program with over 600 active volunteers and foster families; an education department that provides programs to kids and teens, and a marketing department that manages all PR and marketing activities. 

AAWL was a pioneer in developing relationships with more than 30 rural rescue partners across Arizona, which not only allows more animals to find their forever homes, but also brings resources like food, supplies, and education to underserved areas.  Known as our "Rural Rescue" program, our intake team travels throughout the state of Arizona to help those smaller, rural organizations that have little or no resources.  The animals we help would typically be euthanized without our assistance.  Our staff, including our medical team, often provide expertise and consultation to these groups to help them implement better policies and practices in their organization.

We also work closely with the National Mill Dog Rescue in Colorado, and have brought in more than 200 "mill dogs" that typically need a great deal of medical and behavior care before being ready for adoption. The position reports directly to the Board of Directors and is responsible for overseeing the administration, programs and strategic plan of the organization. The CEO provides leadership to a management team consisting of seven directors serving in the following areas:  Operations, Marketing, Volunteer and Special Events, Education, Finance, Fundraising, and Medical and Community Outreach.

COMPENSATION & BENEFITS: The salary for this position is competitive and commensurate with experience. Benefits include health insurance and paid time off.  See more here: https://aawl.org/content/president-and-ceo-job-search.

 

Position Qualifications:

QUALIFICATIONS & SKILLS REQUIRED: 

  • 7-10 years of leadership experience, including building organizational culture and supervision of professional staff, with a minimum of 5 years in senior management
  • Master's degree or other advanced degree/certification preferred, ideally in non-profit, public, or business administration
  • A caring, dedicated person, committed to the AAWL mission, with demonstrated examples and/or prior related professional experience, an understanding of current animal welfare issues
  • Experience and skill in working with a Board of Directors.
  • A proven leader with the ability to support AAWL staff to both reach the organization's mission and their own professional development goals
