Careers at Paws To Angels Pet Loss Center

Part Time and On Call Veterinarian

On call veterinarian needed to start right away. For the fast-growing services in End of Life Care in the field of Animal Palliative Care, Pet Hospice, and In-Home Euthanasia. Paws To Angels is honored to be pioneering and leading these wonderful services to the families and our community. We pride ourselves on helping these amazing pet parents through the phone call, through the loss of their pet, and through the healing process.

Palliative Care and Pet Hospice is a family-centered, medically supervised, and team-oriented service dedicated to maintaining comfort and quality of life for the terminally ill or geriatric pet until natural death occurs or the family elect’s euthanasia. Modeled originally from human hospice, this specific type of veterinary care is focused on the comfort of the pet, not at finding a cure for his or her disease. It is important to note that veterinary hospice does not include any diagnostic or blood-work services. Our goal is to focus on comfort and maintaining the human animal bond.

In Home Euthanasia what we believe is one the "Final Acts of Love" done quietly in tranquil serene and the private area of the family's home where we handle things during this incredibly difficult time at the families pace and in the way they want and in a way that is going to be good for them and their whole family. Twostep process of calming sedation and then the final dose.

Job requirements:

  • Must be compassionate, sympathetic, empathetic, and non-judgmental
  • We are almost always on the ground with a large dog or kneeling in front of the small dog or cat sitting on the owner’s lap. Additionally, assisting clients with the aftercare of their pet is essential in this type of our service. This requires lifting pets into a pet casket and carrying the casket to our car.

  • Clear communication via written and oral skills. 
  • Prompt handling of needs from the pet care professionals to families
  • Assurance that families receive outstanding service by providing a quiet, reflective, and friendly environment which includes greeting and acknowledging every family, maintaining outstanding standards, and all other components of Guest Service.
