Application for the role of Animal Care Worker
I would like to apply for the role of Animal Care Worker which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I have studied (what subject) at (where) and I have always been interested in working with animals. I have had animals (what) as pets as I was growing up and always helped to take care of them and this is where my passion for this career began.
I have done some work experience in a local centre where I helped to take care of the animals coming into the centre from difficult home backgrounds or just purely unwanted pets. It is a very traumatising time for any animal to be uprooted and brought somewhere else and they may not be in the best of health. It takes some time to look after these animals and make sure they are on the correct diet, has the correct medications and are being looked after ready to be in a position to look for a new home for them. Animals that I have worked with vary from cats and dogs to more exotic pets.
I am very caring and patient, I work very hard and I am dedicated to my work. I have no commitments and can work any hours or shifts as required.
I have enclosed my CV for your interest. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
Good luck with writing your cover letter.
