We are looking for highly motivated individuals who share our missions and goals for companion animals in our state. The typical schedule for surgeons is a four-day work week and one Saturday a month at a shelter or vaccine clinic. Additional work-days may be available as bonus pay. While previous high volume/shelter experience would be ideal, any interested candidates with a good attitude and willingness to learn will be given consideration. Mentorship is available.
