Job Description

Are you compassionate about animals and have a desire to speak for those who cannot? For over 100 years, the Dumb Friends League has been working to end pet homelessness and animal suffering by providing a strong and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. As the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the region, we care for more than 20,000 homeless pets and horses each year at our four facilities and are a national model in animal welfare. As a Relief Veterinarian, you will perform veterinarian medical and surgical procedures on a part-time basis.

Responsibilities

  • Perform surgical procedures including HQHV spay/neuter, dentistry, and various soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. Procedures performed at shelters and occasionally on League’s mobile units.
  • Perform veterinarian medical functions including examination and treatment of shelter animals, and perform necropsies as needed.
  • Perform euthanasia and other related tasks.
  • Work with cruelty investigations staff for evaluation, documentation and testimony about the condition of animals involved in investigation cases.
  • Consult and provide assistance to patrons and external veterinarians regarding animals at or adopted from the League.
  • Direct the work of technicians and assistants.
  • Manage and maintain accurate medical records.
