Full job description

Are you a veterinarian who wants to focus on the animals? Tired of seeing companion animals leave your clinic/hospital without receiving the care that they need? Join Stray Cat Alliance, where we make all the decisions about the care for our cats and kittens. By joining Stray Cat Alliance, a community-based cat rescue, you will be making a difference for cats and kittens who otherwise have limited to no options for care. In 2023, we directly served 3,603 cats and kittens, and provided resources and support to another 25,347 cats and kittens through our hotline.

In addition to our mission-driven operations and robust benefits package, veterinarians employed by us could be eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program (PSLF), a government program that forgives the remaining debt on eligible loans for borrowers who have worked at least 10 years in public service or the nonprofit sector.

Every day, our team works to save the lives of kittens and cats by providing: spay/neuter, trap-neuter-return (TNR), adoptions, wellness care, medical care, and community shelter support. Our goals are to:
