Who we’re looking for

  • Must love animals! Sure, that seems obvious, but you need to really love animals. It's not all puppies and kittens, although they are a big perk. The work can be hard, physically and emotionally, but the rewards are huge.

  • And people, too. We believe deeply in the human/animal bond, so our work is about helping people as much as it is helping pets. This could be adopters, pet families visiting our clinic, or community supporters.

  • Ready for a challenge? The employees who thrive in our organization rise to the challenge, from stepping up to help in a natural disaster to taking the extra time to figure out how to help a frightened dog or cat feel safe.

  • Self-starters wanted! We believe there are always more ways to help save lives. We need folks who take ownership of their role, break down barriers, and bring new ideas. In return, we offer virtually endless learning opportunities and prioritize career growth from within the team.
