Join the Best Friends team and put your large animal medicine expertise to work in the heart of our organization, the largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals in the country! Come live among the beautiful red rock canyons and use your veterinary experience to help up to 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, and other barnyard animals at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. As a Best Friends veterinarian, you'll be part of a professional medical team that performs lifesaving work, providing animals top-of-the-line medical care.
While staff veterinarians work as a team to provide for all veterinary needs across departments, there are multiple areas within which you can grow or apply your passions in the role. We’re seeking veterinarians who have professional interests that include:
Our medical facilities include a 13,000-square-foot clinic facility with a dedicated dental suite, state-of-the-art laboratory, x-ray suite, ultrasound room, and many more features to provide animals with all they need. And satellite clinics located within each sanctuary department allow you to spend your days working closely with the animal care teams and thousands of animals who pass through the Sanctuary on their way to a loving adopted home, with resources and technical support readily at hand.
In addition, Kanab is in beautiful southern Utah – an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. We are surrounded by world-renowned parks and nature sites such as the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell, Horseshoe Bend, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, and many more. If you are looking for a spectacular work-life balance and want to live in the outdoor playground of southern Utah, contact us today!
