The Veterinary Technicians are responsible for all medical care of the animals under the organization’s care, ensuring the health and well-being of all cats and dogs, both at the shelter and in foster homes.
Heartland is searching for a highly motivated, experienced veterinarian to provide medical care and HVHQSN services to our shelter animals and some public clients (duties split between surgery and shelter medicine/pet wellness services). This position would serve as the primary staff veterinarian as well as work directly with the Executive Director on planning and initiatives to help grow the impact of Heartland’s Medical Program. The ideal candidate for this role would possess a dynamic skill set, confidence, and be a positive and flexible team player with a passion for shelter medicine and an interest in establishing protocols, team building, and community programming.
This is a part-time (2 days/week) position with room for growth to full-time; we encourage and value continuing education and take pride in our commitment to a positive workplace culture. This position is great for a veterinarian who enjoys both medicine and surgery and who is comfortable providing guidance about shelter med protocols to our small team of technicians. The shelter veterinarian would oversee and maintain the health of our shelter population (cats and dogs) and offer support to operations staff in maintaining herd health. Candidates should be comfortable with in-heat spays, pregnant spays, large dog surgeries, and have the ability to perform procedures such as leg amputation, enucleation, cherry eye sx, as well as other lifesaving procedures.
The Animal Care Attendants are responsible for general upkeep of the shelter in addition to ensuring basic care of the animals which includes appropriate housing, access to food and clean water, cleanliness of living spaces, and their physical, emotional, and mental needs. We are looking for those interested in working with both cats and dogs.
Part Time: morning, evening and weekend shifts available
