Community Outreach Medicine Veterinarian
Seattle Humane is a private, not-for-profit, managed admission shelter committed to saving animal lives and improving the human-animal bond. Seattle Humane promotes the human-animal bond by saving and serving pets in need, regardless of age, ability, circumstance and geography. Seattle Humane has a 98.6% Live Release Rate. Last year we placed over 7,000 pets into loving homes and provided income-qualified households with access to affordable spay/neuter services through our public surgery clinic. We are searching for a veterinarian who can join us in our mission and help launch our Community Medicine and Wellness Program.
Lack of access to affordable veterinary care has created a human and animal welfare crisis. At Seattle Humane, we are committed to reducing the numbers of animals entering shelters and to keeping pets in their loving homes by increasing access to veterinary care.
The ideal candidate for this position should be passionate about preserving and strengthening the human-animal bond. They should be humble and kind, with a good sense of humor and deep desire to make a difference in the lives of people and their pets.
All positions include training opportunities, an employee assistance program for all employees and their families, employee discounts on merchandise and limited veterinary services. Full-time positions are eligible for our benefits marketplace (SH pays a generous monthly amount towards these benefits), ten paid holidays and a generous paid time off plan.
