Thank you for your interest in employment at Heartland Animal Shelter! When we have job openings they are listed below. If no employment opportunities are listed, we can always use dedicated volunteers!

Veterinary Assistants and Technicians:

Heartland Animal Shelter is seeking part-time veterinary assistants and technicians to join our medical team!

Duties include evaluating the medical conditions of our resident dogs and cats and prescribing appropriate medication and treatment plans, administering medications and vaccinations, obtaining samples and running diagnostic tests, and responding to medical emergencies.

While experienced veterinary assistants and technicians are preferred for these roles, we are willing to train the right candidate. Some professional experience working with both dogs and cats is required. Applicants must be comfortable handling both species, of all sizes and temperaments. The ideal candidates will be highly motivated, exceptionally organized, able to work independently. Experience volunteering or working for an animal shelter is a plus!
