Do you want to be part of the solution, while having a work/life balance? We are a high quality, nonprofit, spay/neuter and wellness clinic for cats. We are expanding our services and are looking for a part-time (approx. 20-30 hours per week-Saturdays required) veterinarian for spay/neuter surgeries, amputations, entropion surgery and enucleations as well as dental cleaning for strays and ferals. This can be a full time position if you prefer. You would also do wellness exams and basic testing (fecal, FeLV, FIV, etc.).
On average we do 20 surgeries a day and wellness after surgeries. Would prefer an applicant with strong surgical experience, but we are willing to train if you have a desire and passion for surgery.
This is a fast paced job that is extremely rewarding at the end of the day. We take great pride in giving each cat, whether feral or pet, the best possible experience it can have while here. Ferals are treated for anything we are able to (including URTI, wounds, etc.) before being returned to their caretaker.
To date, we have spayed or neutered over 25,000 cats since opening in January 2014. We have worked with our local SPCA to become a low kill shelter from being an extremely high kill shelter. They no longer euthanize for space and have adopted TNR as part of their program. We have great community support and are looking for someone to be part of the next expansion.
Competitive pay based on experience. We do have some flexibility with hours/days, except for Saturdays which are required.
Williamsport is in northcentral PA and is less than a three hour drive to NYC, Philly, Baltimore and Pittsburgh.
Strong surgical background. Must be able to perform amputations, encleations, entropion surgeries and others as needed.
Must be comfortable working with cats, including ferals.
Must have PA veterinarian license. Prefer applicant to have or be able to get a DEA license.
