Critters Without Litters, Kern County’s only nonprofit spay/neuter clinic, is seeking a capable and compassionate veterinarian to join our team. We offer: an extremely competitive salary and benefits, including medical, dental, and vision insurance, and paid time off; a strong, experienced medical support team; top of the line surgical equipment and supplies; a Monday-Friday schedule (approximately 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.) with no nights or weekends, and several paid holidays. The organization also offers a generous CE allowance, licenses and dues, and a professional, upbeat environment.
Located in California’s southern Central Valley, the clinic’s location in Bakersfield offers easy access to the beach, mountains, desert, or Los Angeles for your weekend and vacation fun. Additionally, you will be joining a team that has community-wide support and respect for the work we have done to help reduce the euthanasia rates in our municipal shelters by nearly 50 percent in the past four years.
Primary duties include spay/neuter surgery, along with pre- and post-surgery exams, and collaborating with our veterinary technicians/assistants. Sound boring? We can assure you that every day is different and after four-plus years, the staff members who began with us (80 percent of which are still with the organization) haven’t gotten bored yet.
New graduates are welcome to apply. Starting salary of $90K for new grads/veterinarians with limited spay/neuter experience, with additional salary consideration for doctors with previous experience and/or spay/neuter surgical skills.
