Norfolk, Va. – PETA is seeking veterinarians for summer positions with its mobile, high-volume spay/neuter veterinary clinics, which perform free and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries on hundreds of cats and dogs every month, among other services.

From June 1 to August 31, summer veterinarians will be provided with free housing in the vibrant seaside community of Norfolk, Virginia—along with a flexible four- to five-day workweek, a competitive salary, and more.

“This position is the perfect opportunity for recent graduates or other veterinarians wishing to gain experience in a fast-paced, truly rewarding veterinary clinic,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “Successful candidates will be helping to provide vital veterinary services to dogs and cats who otherwise might never receive vaccinations or spay/neuter surgery.”
