Are you passionate about reducing pet overpopulation while providing quality, affordable services to a large number of pets? If so, then consider joining the team at Planned PEThood of Georgia. We are a rapidly expanding non profit organization in Duluth, GA. We operate a high-volume, high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter clinic, as well as affordable weekend vaccine clinics. We have a growing foster-based rescue to adopt program that adopts around 800 pets each year. We are feral-friendly, with a full-time TNR program, and we manage veterinary services full time at Gwinnett County’s shelter. We also work with several local area shelters to provide spay/neuter services to their adoptable animals.
We are in need of a veterinarian to join our team in Duluth, GA. Job duties include high volume surgery (Monday through Thursday) and wellness clinics (one to two Saturdays a month) as well as seeing some foster patients for our rescue. Surgeries are mostly spay/neuter (including cryptorchid castrations, pyometra spays and late term spay aborts) but some other procedures like amputations or enucleations are done on our foster animals. Familiarity with shelter medicine and high volume spay neuter is important for this role but all interested candidates will be considered. We are more than willing to train the right person! Client contact is minimal except for under special circumstances.
This is a full time position with competitive salary and benefits (PTO, license renewal fees, medical/dental/supplemental insurance). The work week is approximately 40 hours, scheduled as 4 10 hour days, Monday through Thursday and one to two Saturdays a month. While previous high volume/shelter experience would be idea, any candidates with a good attitude and willingness to learn will be considered.
For more information or to apply, please e-mail questions or resumes to our Medical Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
