Associate Veterinarian

Best Friends Animal Society

Job Description

Our Clinic Practice:

The Sanctuary Clinic is a special blend of general practice and shelter. Best Friends is doing more and more to support shelters across the country, as well as our own lifesaving centers in other cities. For veterinarians who are interested and want to expand their knowledge base, within our Sanctuary work is our large animal area as well as parrots, rabbits, and our wildlife program. We also provide care for our Kanab-based staff personal pets, so we do see some emergencies.

Being a unique blend of shelter and private practice (and sometimes specialty), our Sanctuary Clinic is an amazing facility with lots of toys. The spay/neuter suite has 3 tables and a separate suite for more involved surgeries. The Clinic also has ultrasound, digital radiology, a dental suite, an endoscope, laser therapy, a water treadmill and a complete rehab program.

Our Team:

Staff doctors typically work 4 days a week, 10-hours a day. The hospital is open 7 days a week, so each doctor usually works the same days each week. Our current team consists of several doctors with many years of collective experience. One of our doctors practiced for 10+ years in the northeast doing emergency and specialty and is a phenomenal clinician and teacher. Our Medical Director practiced full-time emergency and shelter/high quality high volume spay neuter before coming to Best Friends. And, the Medical Director continues to teach through HSUS’s RAVS program.

Our Location:

Best Friends Animal Society is located in a red rock canyon near Kanab, Utah, at the heart of the Golden Circle of national parks, which include Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce Canyon. The locale of the Sanctuary is a sacred place that was once home to ancient peoples of the Southwest. The founders knew they had discovered something very rare and special in what has become known as Angel Canyon. Visitors to the Sanctuary feel the healing effects of the animals and the canyon and a connection to something very powerful.

Our Benefits:

Medical, Dental, Vision, Basic and Supplemental Life Insurance, Short- & Long-Term Disability, Flexible Spending Account, Health Savings Account, Employee Assistance Program, 401K, PTO, Paid Holidays, Pet Bereavement Leave, Childcare reimbursement, Pet-Sitting reimbursement, veterinary care, casual dress policy, vegan café, free membership to the Best Friends Wellness and Fitness Center.
