Jordan Craig is the Manager III over shelter operations at Dallas Animal Services (DAS). With more than 34,000 animals entering the shelter annually, she is working with her team to improve programs and execute new strategies to safely and responsibly place as many animals as possible.
Prior to joining the DAS team, Jordan started her career in animal welfare in the non-profit sector, working in wildlife rehabilitation and then domestic animal sheltering. She became a part of Austin Animal Services in 2010, starting out cleaning kennels during the overnight shift. For the next eight years she worked closely with her colleagues to create innovative strategies to not only maintain a 90% live outcome rate, but to strive to always improve.
In her leadership roles, she has endeavored to improve the quality of life for both animals and employees. Jordan has also had the privilege of speaking at regional animal welfare conferences to help other agencies learn about programs and strategies to help improve processes and break through barriers in the field of animal welfare.
At the end of this session, attendees will understand how to apply for and start a leadership job at a municipal animal shelter.
