I am glad I was not the first to notice this paltry salary. This can be a dangerous job. It's not all about rescuing stray kitties from trees or chasing down someone's lost dog. You get called out to trap raccoons and other rabid animals. Also, you get the lovely job of removing dead deer and other animals from the road. And, you need to be on call. With that salary, you won;t even be able to afford a cage in an animal shelter.
