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 internal 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. Secondary focus is for Wellness Clinics for pet cats, to facilitate our adoption efforts at Petco, and to reduce surrender issues.
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 a 7.5 year history. This includes an anesthesia machine, 24 spay packs, and 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, with utilities provided, in exchange for 4 clinic days per month, in Laurel, only 12 minutes from our clinic. There is an abundance of additional employment opportunities in a 25 mile radius, particularly at nearby ‘sister’ clinics, in 3 communities which are also under-served. (Georgetown, DE, Salisbury, MD, and Secretary, MD. Assistance with dual-state licensing is available.)
If you would enjoy small town life surrounded by farming country, with lower income taxes 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!
