Lead Veterinarian for Respected Nonprofit in Nashville, Tennessee

Pet Community Center envisions a world where high-quality veterinary care is accessible and affordable to all animals and families in our community. We envision a future where all pets are happy, healthy, and cared for by people whose lives they enrich. With more than 50% of all surgeries and services subsidized, our services help vulnerable pets and loving families in underserved communities.

Since 2011, we have spayed/neutered 54,000 animals and provided low- to no-cost vaccinations to nearly 60,000 pets. To help us continue transforming veterinary care in Middle Tennessee, Pet Community Center is searching for a compassionate, dynamic veterinarian to provide both strategic vision and hands-on leadership for our high-quality, high-volume (HQHV) spay/neuter practice as well as our wellness program, both of which serve thousands of pets and families each year.
