Arizona Humane Society
  • Phoenix, AZ, USA
  • Full Time

Every pet deserves a good life. We save the most vulnerable animals and enrich the lives of pets and people. Our mission is made possible with the hard work of our valued employees. Named "Best Nonprofit" and "Best Place to Volunteer" by our community, we offer a friendly, professional work environment with a culture that promotes innovation, compassion and excellence.

As of June 14th, 2021, the Arizona Humane Society will require proof of immunization against COVID-19 for all new employees. Exemptions will be allowed for medical or religious reasons.



At our competitive paying, non-profit veterinary clinic, we help ensure that all pet owners have access to affordable spay/neuter surgeries and vaccines. We're proud to provide reduced or free grant-funded services to those who may not otherwise seek care for their pet due to financial barriers. We're also committed to reducing the number of unaltered outdoor cats in our community and offer affordable services to our Trap-Neuter-Return program partners twice a month. Your work as a high-volume spay/neuter and vaccine veterinarian will help combat pet overpopulation by reducing the number of unaltered pets in our community, while also helping to keep families together, and pets out of the shelter. It is more than a job; it's a mission and a purpose.
