Do you see yourself working at a rescue and adoption agency like Tails Humane Society in DeKalb, Illinois? Started in 1999, Tails Humane Society provides “a safe haven for over 3,350 animals each year,” conducts community outreach programs, and offers low-cost spay and neuter services.1 This is where Stautzenberger College graduate Peyton McAllister began serving animals. We are proud of Peyton for graduating from our animal welfare administration program and starting the career of her dreams. 

What You Learn in an Animal Welfare Administration Program

For each graduate of a program, we highlight three different courses. During the program, Peyton took courses such as: Animal Medical Terminology, Anatomy, and Physiology; Animal Facility Management; and Exotics and Pocket Pets.

In these courses, she learned about:

  • The basic structure and function of animal cells and tissues, the organization of the body, basic animal medical terminology, and systemic anatomy and physiology
  • The basics of animal care facility location, design, management and operation, including the health and safety of workers and animals in the facility
  • The unique husbandry, handling, and medical needs of various exotic species, rodents, and rabbits often kept as pets and laboratory animals

These and other courses prepared Peyton for her career at Tails Humane Society.
