Do you love cats? Do you want to do something rewarding every day without the constraints of corporate bean counters? Do you like to have time off to enjoy your friends and family? We have the job for you!
We are currently seeking to add a second veterinarian to our staff. We are a low cost, high quality spay/neuter clinic for cats. We are a nonprofit organization and since opening our clinic in Jan. 2014 our staff has spayed or neutered over 16,000 cats. We accept all cats (pets, strays, ferals) and have no income or geographic limitations. We are expanding our Compassionate Communities program which will include more TNR and with this we need another vet.
We also offer wellness appointments to cats and would like to expand these hours as well since we are often weeks out in scheduling both surgeries and wellness.
We primarily are looking for someone to work Wed. or Thursdays through Sat. or Sunday. You would also fill in for our primary vet on her days off. We can be very flexible with schedule-either longer days and less of of them or shorter days and more-your choice. We will also consider someone interested in a temporary position.
We should qualify for the loan forgiveness program since we are nonprofit.
We are located in beautiful northcentral PA. We are a three hour ride to NYC, Baltimore and Philly. Our cost of living is low and the mountains are beautiful. Lots of outdoor activities-hiking, boating, kayaking-you name it.
Our primary vet is willing to train. Ultimately you should be comfortable with doing 20-25 surgeries per day or more if you choose the 10-12 hour day schedule. We also perform enucleations, amputations and other surgeries as needed. This is a fast paced job, but we have a very upbeat environment and are really all about the cats and their well being.
You would also be responsible for general wellness (vaccines, URTI) visits.
Experience with HQHVSN is a plus.
