Community Medicine and Surgery Veterinarian (Part-time or Full-time)

Idaho Humane Society is seeking a full-time Veterinarian for our public veterinary medical center, a full-service, affordable veterinary hospital that is open to the public 7 days a week. Located in beautiful Boise, Idaho, our brand new, 12,000 square foot state of the art hospital is well equipped and provides a wide range of services with a large and diverse caseload ranging from basic wellness care to advanced internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, as well as orthopedic surgery.

We primarily serve people and their pets that would otherwise be unable to receive care elsewhere through various programs like low-cost spay and neuter, household income-based sliding scale fees, payment plans, and financial assistance grants.

In addition to a competitive salary, we offer health benefits, retirement plan with employer match, eight paid holidays, continuing education and license reimbursement, and paid time off to enjoy all that Idaho has to offer. Since IHS is a non-profit 501(c)(3), you may be eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF).
