Industry Jobs-Booklist

Rather than focus on a particular career, this installment in the Industry Jobs series (6 titles)
covers a range of employment opportunities in the field of animal care. An opening chapter
follows a woman named Kelsey through a day at work in an animal shelter, setting the scene for
what?s expected. Accompanied by photos of workers in action, three separate chapters examine
more jobs in thematic clusters, including jobs in animal facilities, animal health, and animal
training. In each chapter, straightforward, accessible text describes the tasks required for such
jobs as groomers, wildlife rehabilitators, zookeepers, and service dog trainers and the education
and skills needed to fulfill them. Sidebars offer perspectives to consider, like the emotional toll of
working with animals, while a concluding annotated list gives a visual recap of the jobs
mentioned throughout.
