Full-Time Surgical Veterinarian Wanted for Thunder Bay Humane Society

The Thunder Bay & District Humane Society (TBDHS) is setting up a brand new, low-cost, high-volume Spay and Neuter Clinic to help reduce the current pet overpopulation crisis in Northern Ontario. 

With a Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, here is your chance to work as a full-time surgical veterinarian where you will lead a small surgery team and oversee the Society’s Spay/Neuter program, and assist at times with shelter medicine. Reporting to the Chair of the Humane Society’s Board, this is a senior position where you will provide comprehensive preventive medicine services, including spay/neuter/vaccination/micro-chips/anti-parasitic treatments, and general out-patient medical & surgical services – as required in the district.  You will also supervise a technician and other assistant staff. It is time to have that quality-of-life you are looking for as a vet!

Your qualifications include a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DMV) from a recognized Canadian Veterinary College, with additional, specialized surgical study, or the accepted “equivalency” if trained in a school outside of Canada (and passing the required examinations). You will have also obtained the necessary provincial licence, and you have several years of surgical experience. 

The TBDHS is a non-profit organization providing care and shelter to animals in need. Being affiliated with the Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) lets us exceed Canadian standards care, and our recent affiliation with Humane Alliance, has allowed the Board to expand its services to include a spay/neuter clinic.  As we strive to meet our objectives, which include education, public awareness and population control, further expansion may be considered in the future. 

The City of Thunder Bay itself, with a metropolitan population of just over 100,000, is the gateway to Canada’s great outdoors and situated on the world’s largest in land freshwater lake. Thunder Bay has big city amenities and is a diverse, vibrant, urban community in a wilderness setting. It’s an important regional medical hub, and is readily accessible by land, sea and air. Our climate has been called continental, and all four seasons are offered in their entirety. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind community, offering quality of life, and accessible to all kinds of vacationers and adventure seekers. 

The 2017 annual salary range for the position is starts at $85,000, 4 weeks paid vacation and the starting salary being commensurate with education and experience.  A competitive benefits package is also offered.
