Kern County Animal Services’ veterinary position is vital to the achievement of Department goals and objectives. The ideal candidate is one that seeks to build and create a medical program within a municipal animal welfare agency that has improved its life-saving ability significantly through hard work, dedication, perseverance, and a self-starter attitude. One of our major goals at KCAS is to change our community’s perception of pets. Of both shelter pets, and the pets in their homes. The Veterinarian will play a major role in bringing subsidized spay and neuter services to underserved areas of the County on a regular basis, creating and developing a medical program that will improve the lives of shelter pets, providing guidance and leadership to staff and volunteers, and representing the department as an ambassador to the veterinarians in the community. These roles are all incredibly valuable in accomplishing our primary goal of creating a “No Kill” mindset in the County of Kern.
