I want to work for the SPCA or Humane Society. Can you get an actual paying job?

Or is all work through these organizations volunteer? The reason I ask is because I LOVE animals and want to work in an animal related career. I'm getting my human resource degree next year. Are there paying HR jobs at those types of organizations?
