Mr. Jeff Martinez
Hiring Manager
Pets & Vets
6668 Green Pond Road
Murrells Inlet, SC 99928


Dear Mr. Martinez:

When I saw your advertisement in the Daily News for the job opening of an Animal Caretaker, I immediately decided to apply. There is no other reason for me to want to work for Pets & Vets other than the fact that I love animals and want to pursue my career helping and sheltering them.

I have been working at the same position for PAWS in Clover but had to leave the position following the move to Murrells Inlet due to a pressing family problem. Since then, I have been looking for a place where I can apply my acquired knowledge of animal care. At PAWS, I was responsible for:

– Assisting wardens with capturing animals doomed to the pound

– Maintaining animal shelters in terms of cleanliness and sanitation

– Tagging animals as they brought in, and feeding and watering them

– Observing animals for illnesses and ensuring proper medication is provided

– Performing daily health checks

My natural and instinctive love for animals is a trait that helps me work successfully in a position that caters to the needs of homeless and sick animals. I believe that someone working at this post must possess these traits to be able to do justice to it truly.

Please find my resume enclosed for your reference. I would like to meet with you to discuss this Animal Caretaker position in detail. I will call you next week to follow-up on my job application and can be reached at 999-999-999 in the interim.

Thank you for your time in looking through this letter.
