Competitive pay based on exper
Type & Experience Level:
Part Time or Full Time - Any experience level considered
DVM or equivalent
It's all about the cats and making their lives better at Beckoning Cat Project. We are a nonprofit full time, low cost spay/neuter clinic for cats in northcentral PA. Since opening in January 2018 we have spayed or neutered over 18,000 cats.
We offer superior care to the cats during their visit, including full physicals and treatment of any wounds, URTIs or other issues they may have. Even the smallest comforts such as putting towels and pee pads in their carriers or traps are not overlooked. We have an excellent reputation and work with local shelters, rescues and TNR groups to spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter.
The ideal candidate will possess the same drive to offer exceptional care to our feline patients as we have. While a seasoned surgeon, with spay/neuter experience, is preferred, we are willing to train the confident, eager to learn new graduate with a strong interest in surgery. In addition to the spay/neuter surgery, we also encounter pyometras, cryptorchid, pregnant spays, as well as cats needing amputations, enucleations, entropian surgery, etc.
We do offer some wellness appointments for annual vaccines, kitten vaccines and URTI and parasite treatment. We do not offer diagnostics or emergency care.
Why consider Beckoning Cat Project?
Are you tired of corporate bean counters? Here we never let cost interfere with what is best for the cat.
Are you tired of no work to life balance? Here you work your hours and then you are off. No on call or emergency hours, ever. We are looking to fill a 25-30 hour position, but can be flexible with a little more or less. This job would require Thursday through Saturdays. The rest is up to you as to how many hours you would like to work.
Are you tired of spaying dogs? We only do cats and always will.
Tired of revolving employees? Our staff has mostly been here since the beginning. We have a very skilled support staff ready to make your job easy.
What does Williamsport, PA offer me? We are a two college town in the beautiful mountains of PA. We have a strong music and art presence downtown if that is your thing. Are you more of an outdoorsy person? We have miles and miles of trails and state parks to explore and have a river running through town that offers boating, kayaking, fishing etc., as well as numerous creeks and lakes. We have a minor league ball team and are the home of Little League, for what that's worth. There is literally something for everyone here.
We are only an hour from Penn State and Bryce Jordan Center and if you need even more excitement, we are just a three hour drive to NYC, Philly, Baltimore and Pittsburgh.
Strong surgical skills are preferred, but we will train the new graduate who is eager to perform surgeries and has a strong desire to learn from one of the best feline vets around.
MUST LOVE CATS!!!!!
