Job Description

The Animal Protective League (APL) in Springfield, Illinois is an established animal welfare organization that operates an HVHQ spay/neuter clinic and a limited admission animal shelter. APL is dedicated to ending pet overpopulation through spay/neuter, adoption, and various community programs, including a low-cost wellness clinic. Since the clinic opened in 2006 we have performed over 150,000 surgeries, and area euthanasia rates have dropped more than 70%. We are seeking a compassionate, enthusiastic, and like-minded full-time and/or part-time veterinarian(s) to join us in our mission to end the euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals in our community and beyond.

Our two full-time clinic veterinarians perform 13,000 spay/neuter surgeries and provide wellness care to 1,000 locally owned animals annually. The veterinarian is responsible for performing spay/neuter surgeries for the public and shelter animals, performing wellness appointments at monthly vaccine clinics, participating in occasional community pet wellness initiatives, and treating shelter animals on an as-needed basis.

Enjoy living in a metropolitan capital city with a small-town feel. Springfield offers a cost of living that is 15% below the national average, great public and parochial schools, and a lively arts community. The Springfield area is best known for its numerous Abraham Lincoln historical sites. Not a Lincoln junkie? Visit the area’s 30 parks, make the easy drive to St. Louis, or take Amtrak to Chicago.

Applicants must possess current DVM license in the State of Illinois. Competitive salary and benefits, including health insurance, vacation time, CEUs, Illinois license, VIN membership, membership to a veterinary association, and liability coverage.
