Data Entry

Data entry involves assisting in keeping records current and updated. This can involve entering veterinary costs for each dog, records of veterinary visits, records of calls and inquiries concerning adoptions and other data that needs to be housed in our Animal Shelter Manager system. This is an important function for someone with a good attention to detail.

Data entry involves gathering data and capturing some or all of the information including gathering documents and data from various sources to put together a complete picture. This requires an attention to detail and ability to think logically. This may require following up with other team members to verify information and ensure accuracy and completeness. It also involves identifying and correcting errors and bringing them to the attention of the appropriate parties.
