The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) WA is the state's leading voice in animal welfare.  On an average day, we employ around 90 staff and we have the support of an amazing group of volunteers. Together, our team works diligently toward preventing animal cruelty.

About this opportunity

Attention all vets with a passion for animal welfare, high standards of veterinary work, family friendly hours and no client contact!

We have two fantastic opportunities for experienced veterinarians to join our veterinary team at RSPCA WA.

  1. Parental leave cover - 3 days per week until October 2022 (0.6 FTE)
  2. Permanent part-time - 4 days per week (0.8 FTE)

The veterinary clinic based at the RSPCA WA shelter in Malaga provides services for the shelter animals and the RSPCA WA Inspectorate, including prosecutions.

The veterinary team practices at a very high standard, with best animal welfare being central to all treatment undertaken.

Our facility is equipped with (including but not limited to);

  • full orthopaedic kit
  • electrocautery unit
  • two IM3 dental machines
  • digital x-ray
  • ultrasound
  • surgivet
  • pulse ox
  • apalerts 
  • in house blood analysers.

The role involves weekday shift work from 8.30am-4.30pm. No weekend or afterhours work is required. As we do not offer a veterinary service to the public, there is no requirement for client contact in this role. (You may be required to discuss treatment plans with foster carers).

This position would suit a small animal veterinarian who has:

  • at least 3-5 years' clinical experience
  • confidence with routine small animal medical and surgical cases
  • some experience with more complex cases
  • good attention to detail
  • a team player ethos.

We have a wonderful team of staff who are very welcoming and will support you in your role.

While the majority of cases are cats and dogs, a willingness and ability to work with small mammals, birds, etc. is a plus.
