Organization Overview: The Pet Resource Center of Kansas City (PRCKC) is a community resource Organization focused on preventative solutions to keepings pets in the homes of the people who love them. Our mission is to increase pet retention and improve the quality of life for pets through education and supportive services for families in need. We pride ourselves in acknowledging our diverse community with a nonjudgmental and compassionate approach. Our organization provides services to over 25,000 pets annually, with an emphasis on spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and resource distribution -- with the goal of enabling our community pets to live long, healthy and happy lives.
Our veterinarians help support our mission in several capacities, including our walk-in Wellness Care Clinic, mobile or offsite vaccination clinics, spay/neuter surgery clinic and special medical assistance for other medical procedures and services. Mobile vaccination clinics take place in both Missouri and Kansas.
About this role: PRCKC currently has a team of three full time veterinarians and is looking to add a fourth team member. Enjoy weekends off with a Monday thru Friday practice, with the exception of occasional Saturdays for special clinics, if available. Veterinarians work from 8-4/4:30 with a regular lunch break. PRCKC prioritizes mental health and work life balance, with an emphasis on utilizing Paid Time Off. Additionally, with multiple relief veterinarians on staff, we are able to allow flexibility with scheduling and vacation time.
S/N surgeries and vaccinations are only part of what we do. Our veterinarians rotate through all departments to gain experience in a variety of roles and to maintain skills in different practice areas. Currently, there are two veterinarians in surgery, one veterinarian in our wellness clinic and one veterinarian rotating through our mobile clinic and helping with special medical cases.
The PRCKC mobile clinic is a great way to get out of the office, talk one-on-one with appreciative clients, and take a holistic approach to giving people and pets the resources they need. It is truly a great break and a lot of fun!
PRCKC has a thriving special medical assistance program that provides treatment and services to pets who cannot receive care elsewhere due to financial constraints. Our veterinarians do not feel the burden of saying “no” to a client or euthanizing a pet due to finances alone.
We prioritize a solution based approach and will find necessary resources to treat community pets, whether we treat in house or send to a full service partner clinic. You can practice the type of veterinary medicine you want to practice, with the ability to decide what you are comfortable treating in-house and what you need to refer elsewhere.
PRCKC is an evolving organization that is looking for a veterinarian with a “can do” approach, who will aid us in expanding our in-house resources and contribute to innovative ideas on expanding our reach in the community. For example, we are currently looking to start a heartworm treatment program as schedules allow.
New graduates are welcome and our veterinarians offer fantastic support and training.

About Pet Resource Center of Kansas City
We started this journey in 2002 with a singular goal: to provide high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter that would eventually eliminate euthanasia of dogs and cats because there wasn’t space for them.Along the way, we realized there were more ways to help, more ways we could stop pet homelessness. Eventually, that meant we were on the streets helping pet owners with resources, pet food, education and supplies. And it meant a clinic that also helped with vaccinations, parasite treatment or prevention, as well as a special medical care fund.Now, 18 years later – as we help more than 25,000 pets each year with all the services and support listed above – it’s time for our name to reflect all the ways we’re fighting every day to keep pets and people together. We just changed our name this year to Pet Resource Center of Kansas City (formerly Spay and Neuter Kansas City)Come join our team- We promise a positive and rewarding work environment and great support staff.
