ABOUT S'WOOFT

The mission of S’wooft is to offer loving, reliable, and professional pet care in far northwest Chicago and surrounding areas.We do this through:


  • Hiring the best staff, who are fully screened, qualified, and trained 

  • Offering our staff competitive pay, benefits, and a respectful work environment

  • Continually training our staff in Pet First Aid/CPR and other skills that will allow them to offer excellent service to the pets we serve

  • Offering clients consistency in coverage for all daily walks, with additional coverage for off hours needs

  • Maintaining professionalism in all communications, policies, and practices

We specialize in daily dog walking, vacation care, and cat care—all of the ways pet owners need to be able to rely on someone when it comes to the daily care of their pets. Families trust us with their fur babies and their homes, so we're careful to thoroughly screen all of our staff with a full background check, professional references, and shadowing, to see if they have the same abounding love for pets that we do. Rather than a pet service based primarily on convenience, where the quality of staff may be inconsistent, we pride ourselves on each individual who makes up this team. We also strive to build community, both within Team S’wooft and among the greater Chicago area pet community. We do this through team outings, use of an ongoing chat app (Slack), community events, and our various marketing efforts. 

S’wooft is an equal opportunity employer. This means that we select, place, train, and promote the most qualified team members based on relevant factors such as experience, work quality, attitude, and availability. We do not consider race, color, religion, age, gender identification, marital status, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, veteran status, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, genetic information, order of protection status, status as a victim or perceived victim of domestic or sexual violence, status as a qualified handicapped or disabled individual, or any other proscribed factor in our hiring, salary/wage, promotion, or termination decisions, in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. 

Please apply online if you are interested in this opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you!
