Veterinarian

Full Time/Part Time/ Per Diem

We need your help! West Virginia has one of the worst track records for humanely caring for homeless and neglected animals. There  are currently 793,579 dogs and cats in West Virginia households and of those, 144,114 are not spayed or neutered.In 2020, 23% of  animals admitted into West Virginia Shelters were euthanized according to the West Virginia Board of Veterinary Medicine (only 24  counties reported).

To address this critical problem, a group of dedicated volunteers formed the Spay Neuter Incentive Program of West Virginia (SNIP  WV), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, with the goal of preventing the unnecessary suffering and euthanasia of cats and dogs due to  overpopulation and preventable diseases. This is where you can help to make a tremendous contribution to this cause. We are seeking  a full-time veterinarian to work in our new, high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay neuter clinic. This position is four days a week  with one weekend per month and no holidays or on-call duties. Pay is based on experience and industry standards in the area. 

SNIP WV is located in Morgantown, West Virginia, and will be the first high volume spay neuter clinic in the north central West Virginia  area. We will serve clients in north central West Virginia as well as the surrounding areas of Pennsylvania and Maryland. This clinic is  desperately needed so that spay/neuter is more accessible to everyone. With the addition of this clinic in our community, more animals  will get spayed or neutered ensuring a decrease in the influx of animals to our local shelters and rescue groups every year.

  • Pre-surgical physical examinations and administering of pre-surgical drugs

  • Respect for and willingness to work with clients and their pets. 

  • Compassionate team player who can uphold a great reputation with clients. 

  • A commitment to practicing the highest standard of medicine and upholding the veterinary code of ethics. ● Proficiency in high volume spay and neuter surgeries is a plus. 

  • An emphasis on shelter medicine would be an asset in this position. 

  • New graduate applications are welcome.
