Shelter medicine is high-paced, exciting and rewarding work. As the Veterinary Services Supervisor and a Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT) at Seattle Humane, you keep the whole clinic running smoothly, from surgery, to patient care, to community medicine. As a supervisor, you are part LVT, who utilizes their full range of skills to practice high quality medicine and part trainer, helping the team hone their talents. All this, and you get to perform life saving work in a state of the art veterinary facility.
At the end of day on your feet, you get to go home feeling satisfied by impacting the lives of animals and making a difference in your community. You can expect to do this work on a pet focused team that cares for each other, embraces silliness, and believes in working together to meet the mission.
