S/N Surgeon Needed – Housing & Utilities Provided
In Southern Delaware
A Veterinary Surgeon is needed to live and work in the Seaford & Laurel, Delaware, area, which is at the very heart of our DelMarVa peninsula. The ideal applicant will be a Shelter Medicine graduate, with familiarity with the Humane Alliance protocol.
Primary focus is on HQHVLCSN (High-Quality High-Volume Low-Cost Spay/Neuter) of cats, complete with Green Line Tattoo for tame cats, Ear-Tipping for feral cats, and no external stitches of the outer layer of skin for all cats. Ability to perform, or willingness to learn, the Flank Incision Spay, and Pediatric S/N (2 to 4 lbs.) are both huge pluses.
All surgical equipment and medical supplies are provided at our fully functioning “Kitty Fix Clinic”, which is held in dedicated space provided by a local church, in Seaford, with an 8 year history. This includes an anesthesia machine, 24 spay packs, an autoclave, etc. We have a paid Vet Tech with 2 years of experience in this clinic (18 years experience overall), plus several trained medical assistance volunteers, as well as a few clerical volunteers. Private 4 BR/2 B Victorian house provided, with utilities included, in Laurel, in exchange for 4 S/N clinic days per month in Seaford, only 12 minutes apart. House & utilities provided are valued at approximately $20,000/year.
Secondary focus is for Wellness Clinics for pet cats, to facilitate adoption efforts at Petco, and to reduce surrender issues. These optional additional days would provide paid income.
Moreover, there is a tremendous need for Vets in a 25 mile radius, and an abundance of employment opportunities, with the potential for an estimated $90,000/year paid income. Our immediate network includes 3 nearby Shelter & Rescue ‘sister’ clinics, all in communities which are also under-served: Georgetown, DE, and Salisbury and Secretary, MD. (Assistance with dual-state licensing is available.) At the time of the interview with us, we will facilitate interviews for paid employment at one or more of these locations. Please ask us about travel compensation for interviewing in our area.
If you would enjoy small town life surrounded by farming country, with low tax on income, and no sales tax, with 2 state parks, 1 national park, several resort beaches, and coastal night-life, all within a 5 to 45 minute drive, this may be for you. We and our cats are waiting for you to come check us out!
