Heaven Can Wait Animal Society, an established top-rated nonprofit veterinary provider located in Las Vegas, has an opening for a full-time associate veterinarian. The ideal associate is passionate about pet health equity and aligns with the practice of incremental veterinary care. We provide high-impact, lifesaving care to some of Las Vegas’s most disenfranchised populations with our Spay & Neuter and Wellness Clinics.
About Heaven Can Wait Animal Society We are a longstanding nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization committed to serving our community’s animals and their families through low-cost, high-quality spay & neuter services and affordable preventative care. We firmly believe the services we provide keep animals healthy and safe in homes where they're loved, reduce shelter intake & euthanasia, and decrease the burden of pet overpopulation on our community.
Through educating our community on the importance of these services for animal health, as well as reducing intake and euthanasia rates at our local shelters, we’re making a measurable impact on the state of animal welfare in the Las Vegas valley.
For our clients, Heaven Can Wait provides both affordability and an uncompromising level of safety and customer service. We provide extensive communication and follow-up. Our large, experienced team of licensed veterinary technicians have honed their skills in high-volume surgery with dozens of years of combined experience.
Our Medical Director has personally performed over 100,000 spay & neuter surgeries and is passionate about supporting veterinarians’ continued growth and development in surgery and in general practice.
