Now Hiring: Veterinarian (Full, Part-Time, and Per diem available)

Do you have a passion for animals and the people that love them? Do you dream about becoming part of a team that makes a difference in the lives of homeless animals, and also those who can't access traditional veterinary care?

Nestled in the beautiful Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, we are a fast-paced, open admission adoption center that takes in 6,000 animals each year. We are looking for the perfect people to join our veterinary team!

Dakin is looking to add to our staff of veterinarians. We serve animals and our community in many ways and we are sure there is something for everyone. Are you a Spay/Neuter expert, a Vaccine Clinic Rockstar, or do you prefer Shelter or Community Medicine? Excellent compensation for the right candidate. Flexibility in scheduling (full-time, part-time, and per diem opportunities are available), generous paid time off as well as paid continuing education days and reimbursement for professional memberships, and required licensing/insurance. You may also qualify for student loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. As a full-time employee, you will also receive extremely generous PTO!
