We are looking for a talented team member who can think on her/his feet. The clinic at the Alaska SPCA is a high-volume veterinary clinic that emphasizes spay, neuter, common surgeries, and basic exams. This is not a walk-in facility or emergency hospital. We need the right person committed to our mission of promoting humane treatment of companion animals across Alaska.
This is a full-time (40 hour/week) position with the option of working four 10-hour shifts and getting a three-day weekend. The salary range is $17-$24/hour DOE. Our veterinary team is growing to three vets after January 1, and the rest of the clinical team have been with the organization for years. Benefits include health insurance, generous paid leave options, discounted veterinary care, continuing education, and support to pursue VT certification.
Applications from outside of Anchorage or Alaska are welcomed. Come experience the quintessential Alaska lifestyle. Enjoy mountain views, urban wildlife, hiking, skiing, and an extensive bike trail system that crosses Anchorage and hugs the coast. Anchorage is also home to a thriving nightlife with many local bands and musicians, theater groups, museums and cultural activities, and seasonal festivals. World-class adventures can be found just a short drive away. Come see why we are “Wild About Anchorage!”
