Loudoun County Animal Services is the first public animal shelter in the United States to meet 100% of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians' Animal Shelter Guidelines, and we are looking for a veterinarian to serve in a leadership role at our brand new, state of the art facility in Leesburg, Virginia.
Our veterinarian will oversee two licensed technicians and work as a member of our team to promote a community-based approach to animal welfare while reducing shelter intakes. LCAS' mission places an emphasis on complete health for the animals in our custody and we seek a veterinarian who recognizes the importance of enrichment and mental health care to ensure that we are providing the ideal experience to the animals at our shelter. Additionally, we frequently partner with shelters in under-resourced communities to bring pets to Loudoun County for adoption, and our veterinarian is a key stakeholder in that life-saving process. Interactions with pet owners are minimal, with the exception of public clinic events.
General responsibilities include:
LCAS has a 93% live release rate, and while animals who are dangerous or suffering may be euthanized, this task is rarely performed by the staff veterinarian.
Annual compassion fatigue training is provided to all staff, and the position is provided with a suite of excellent benefits. Interviews for this position are being held now, with the intention for a new veterinarian to join the team this summer, with a relocation bonus available. Have questions on the position?

HIRING RANGE: Up to $165,000, depending on qualifications
