Looking for an opportunity with a difference; a role with strong emotional reward and a sense of purpose?

Located in the picturesque Yarra Valley the Victorian Animal Aid Trust (Animal Aid) has been serving the local community since 1935, caring for and re-homing countless lost, abused and unwanted companion animals.

A fantastic opportunity exists for a veterinarian to join the Animal Aid family. This is a role with diversity, as the successful applicant will perform a mix of both private and welfare veterinary services.

Work as a shelter veterinarian is a rewarding opportunity which is not often realised until you become a part of it. Paired with a balance of private practice work to the general public, this is a holistic and highly rewarding role.

More broadly, this role is also an integral part of our greater animal welfare mission; delivered by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers across Animal Aid businesses including Shelters, Boarding Facilities, Grooming Services, Animal Training, Retail, Fundraising and Community Engagement.

The successful applicant will have:

  • A genuine passion for helping people and animals.
