Do you want to change the world? Do you want a job that reminds you why you went in to veterinary medicine? Do you dream of helping underserved pets and their owners alongside a team dedicated to patient care and reducing overpopulation? Do you want to build surgical skill and become a leader in the spay/neuter movement?
SNAP is a high volume spay/neuter and wellness clinic that has been serving the Houston area for almost 25 years. We are established in the fabric of Houston, but are going through an exciting period of rebirth as we bring our foundation system up to date by driving focus back to a happy and fulfilled team as a means of creating stronger advocacy for our patients and our community. We focus on spay/neuter, preventative care, and community education. While our goal is to reduce overpopulation and burden on shelters in order to reduce shelter euthanasia, we see an integral part of that to be strengthening the human/animal bond by providing quality care and compassion to out clients. We want our clients to have a positive view of pet ownership that includes feeling proud of what they can offer their pets, whatever that may be. Similarly, we want our team members to feel good about their contribution and the service they provide.
We currently serve the public as well as various municipal shelters and private rescue groups. We use grant funding, when available, to cover subsidized services for income-qualifying members of the community. SNAP is proud to be a part of two community-collaborative teams, as we believe that no group can successfully combat overpopulation alone. We operate two stationary clinics in the Houston area, as well as two satellite clinics in municipalities that are Houston-adjacent. We also have a stationary clinic and several mobile clinics in the San Antonio area.
Houston is a vibrant city: the fourth largest as well as the most diverse in the country. If overpopulation and shelter medicine is your interest then Houston is the place to be. A sprawling metropolitan area with even more sprawling suburbs, nestled deep in the south, Houston is home to year-round favorable breeding conditions. We are fortunate to be on the cusp of city and county-wide collaborative efforts to unite the community in service of this goal. There is much to be done, but with so much potential for change due to increased awareness and cooperation. Houston is also home to rich culture, world-class museums and theatre, award winning food, and an active music scene. It has maintained an affordable cost of living, and it continues to grow in size daily.
We are actively seeking veterinarians, both with and without surgical experience, who possess or can obtain a Texas veterinary license. Training is provided for those with little or no surgical experience. Qualified candidates should be interested in learning and leading. Full time and part time positions are available, and compensation is competitive. We look forward to hearing form you!
