What would I be doing, specifically?
A typical week could include talking to foster parents about kitten care, examining an owl, reading turtle radiographs, performing high-quality high volume spay/neuter, discussing pathway planning, treating ringworm in a litter of kittens, creating a surgical plan for a rabbit, performing TNR and managing cases in the ICU.
Don’t have all the answers? No problem; we work as a team to provide the best possible care for our patients. The Shelter Veterinarian is supported by Health Technicians and Care Associates, as well as fellow DVMs with expertise in surgery, shelter medicine, wildlife, and emergency medicine.
What will you need to succeed?
We are looking for someone cool, calm, collected and enthusiastic about animal care, shelter medicine, wildlife and surgery. If you are confident and curious you’re our type. Being willing to problem solve in ways that may be brand new to you is half the battle. If herd health and individual care excites you then you should apply!
We are part of a vibrant and expanding community
Pasadena Humane is over a hundred years old and we are looking to the future of animal welfare with tremendous hope. As a nonprofit, with several animal control contracts, we have a strong network of community support and a bright progressive future.
