Are you passionate about saving lives?! Since 2010 we have performed over 35,000 spays and neuters, preventing thousands of unwanted litters in Gwinnett and surrounding counties. Our rescue division also adopts out 700+ pets a year that have been saved from Georgia shelters. We need your skills to help us continue our mission!
We are looking for experienced vet techs/assistants to join our expanding medical team. Experience specific to high volume spay/neuter would be ideal but is not required. Qualified candidates should be able to safely restrain dogs and cats, collect blood samples and run basic lab work, assist with surgical prep, administer vaccines and medications, and monitor animals while they recover from anesthesia. We perform 40 or more surgeries daily, so this is a fast paced work environment. You must be able to lift 40-50 pounds, get up and down from the floor repeatedly, and stand for long periods of time. You must have a positive attitude, an excellent work ethic, be detail oriented, and be committed to the importance of spay/neuter. You should also be able to provide excellent customer service and be willing to go the extra mile to provide quality care to as many pets as possible.
Planned PEThood offers an attractive work schedule (Monday-Thursday plus 2 half Saturdays per month), competitive salary and benefits package, and the chance to make a real difference for Georgia’s pets. Please send resume with cover letter and salary requirements; no phone calls, please.
