Sydney Dogs & Cats Home is a community focussed companion animal welfare charity whose mission is to provide high-quality support services both for in-need animals and the people who care for them. Our organisation is at an exciting point of expansion and we are looking for a dedicated, like-minded veterinarian to join us on this journey.

  • Has at least 5 years of experience with a high level of competency in all aspects of medical and surgical veterinary care.
  • Is compassionate and dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for animals and their people

What we are offering:

  • Full time working hours – no weekend or overnight shifts, work hours negotiable
  • No on-call requirements
  • Well-equipped veterinary clinic with a separate surgical suite, digital x-ray, ultrasound and Ezyvet software
  • A chance to work with a respected and dedicated charity that you can be proud to be a part of
  • Salary is well above award and equivalent to private practice, commensurate with qualifications and experience.
