PAWS is hiring a part time veterinarian. We are currently we are looking for a veterinarian to work in our high volume/low cost clinic on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays from 9-5 (can be one, two, or all three days) as well as filling in for our staff veterinarians as needed.
The PAWS Wellness Clinic provides a means for low income families and animal rescue organizations in Philadelphia to access basic veterinary services for their dogs and cats while providing high quality care. The clinic is equipped with the medications and resources to handle routine outpatient cases including wellness exams, skin conditions, upper respiratory infections, gastrointestinal disease, non-emergent urinary tract conditions, minor soft-tissue injuries, and other preventative care. Cases are typically seen by appointment only to ensure that animals requiring urgent or advanced care are referred to an appropriate full service veterinary hospital. Laboratory services are provided at a reduced cost through Antech diagnostics. The clinic veterinarian is responsible for examining any in-house shelter animals that require medical attention as well as seeing approximately 15 to 20 appointments through the outpatient clinic. There is always at least one experienced veterinary technician available to assist during appointments and procedures. PAWS is a very rewarding place to work because most clients genuinely want to help their pets and with our low costs, they can usually afford the appropriate care or we can work with them to find the best alternative option.
PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest rescue partner and operates two high-volume, low-cost clinics serving pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care. Through its three no-kill shelters and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thous...ands of animals each year. PAWS is working to make Philadelphia a no-kill city where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
Every year in Philadelphia, nearly 22,000 homeless, abandoned, and unwanted dogs and cats enter the city’s animal control shelter. Nearly a quarter of them – over 4,000 pets – never make it back out alive. PAWS is committed to reducing that number, and to leading Philadelphia toward becoming a no-kill city. We do so through comprehensive rescue and prevention efforts: pulling at-risk animals out of the city’s shelter and placing them in loving adoptive and foster homes, and providing low- or no-cost veterinary services and spay/neuter surgery to disadvantaged pet owners, enabling pets to remain as cherished family members rather than face abandonment and preventing the birth of unwanted litters
