Vet SOS is looking for veterinary assistants to join our team of volunteers! Volunteer shifts are once a month at our pop-up clinics in San Francisco.
WHO WE ARE
Vet SOS provides free veterinary care to the companion animals of homeless San Franciscans and links their human guardians with health care services. Operating since 2001, Vet SOS is a project of SFCCC's Street Outreach Services (SOS) program.
WHAT WE DO
Vet SOS provides monthly pop-up veterinary clinics throughout San Francisco with the help of our veterinary volunteers.
HOW WE DO IT
By going directly to homeless people - meeting them on their own turf - the Vet SOS team builds relationships of trust and breaks down the barriers that keep homeless people and their companion animals from the care they need and deserve.
ABOUT THE POSITION
Interested candidates must have at least one year of documented experience working as an veterinary assistant in a small or exotic animal clinic; required to be comfortable serving homeless people and their companion animals in an outdoor, urgent/preventive care setting.
