VETERINARY ASSISTANT

WHO WE ARE

Pet Community Center is a nonprofit on a mission to strengthen the human-animal bond through accessible veterinary care and support services. We operate a high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter and vaccine clinic serving the Metro Nashville area.  Our programs include a Community Cat Program and Pets for Life outreach program.  Since 2011 Pet Community Center has served more than 90,000 animals.

 

WHO WE NEED

Pet Community Center believes that people love their pets and want the best for them.  We exist to serve and share information with pet owners in a non-judgmental, respectful way.  We are looking for compassionate individuals that share that belief and who are motivated by serving underserved people and their pets. 

 

Pet Community Center is seeking candidates who are passionate about helping animals for the position of Veterinary Assistant.

 

IS IT YOU?

You might be our ideal Veterinary Assistant if you meet the above and...

 

+ You enjoy perfecting your skills and learning new things!  You don't mind repetition and enjoy the challenge of making each day better than the last.

+ Working on a team is your strength, and you enjoy working with other hardworking people.  You also enjoy a fast-paced environment that requires a high level of attention to detail and high energy.

+ You tend to be curious about everything, you ask a lot of questions.  You're also a problem-solver. If you see something that isn't working quite right, you find a way to fix it.

+ You are an early bird and are ready to smile and help pets and people first thing in the morning.

+ You are looking for more than just a "paycheck"; you want to make a difference for people and their pets!
