It is a proven fact that the actual size and capacity of the job market are usually hidden from job seekers. That being said, several vacancies get filled every day without being advertised.
If you are planning to conduct a proactive search to get an Animal internship, to hunt down not yet advertised vacancies, you need a specially designed cover letter for the same.
Always begin a cover letter by introducing yourself and giving a brief background regarding your qualifications.
Since a future openings letter is cold contact, it is very important that you demonstrate some knowledge regarding the employer. This will instill some warmth in your cover letter and also reflects your seriousness to get an internship.

July 29, 2023
Mr. Dave Benedict
67 Yellow Stone Ave
Newark, DE 46112
Dear Mr. Benedict:
I am writing to state my genuine interest in any prospective openings for an animal internship at VCA. Currently, I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in animal care at City College, Delaware, and am expected to complete my bachelor’s degree in August 2024.
The reason I want to join VCA as an intern is twofold. Firstly I’d be honored to gain firsthand experience in animal care at a highly valued and internationally recognized institute such as VCA. Secondly, I want to put my acquired skills to use for the success of VCA.
Having stated my goals, please allow me to highlight some of my qualifications that would interest you:
- Food preparation and animal feeding
- Exercising and walking various animals
- Cleaning animal habitats, kennels, and the like
- Ensuring timely vaccinations
- Monitoring general animal health with the ability to identify any signs of illness promptly
- Administering medicine to sick animals
I would like to meet with you and discuss my knowledge and skills further in relevance to any future animal care-related internship opportunities at VCA. I will contact you next week to implore the possibility of an interview.
Thank you for taking out the time to read my letter.
