Employment Opportunities

Join Our Team

Our organization has a mission to feed, fix and rescue animals in Lancaster County, PA. We believe in the importance of spaying and neutering pets, both to help limit overpopulation and to improve the overall health of companion animals. Pet Pantry of Lancaster provides a lower-cost spay and neuter option for pet cats and dogs to the public, and we are looking to grow a supportive team interested in helping us continue to make this possible!

Our team is energetic, passionate, and can work both independently or as a team on projects. If this sounds like a team you want to be a part of, we invite you to view our open positions below.


Are you tired of working evenings and weekends? Do you want to be part of an amazing

organization that allows you a work/life balance?

Pet Pantry of Lancaster County is a well-respected 501(c)(3) non-profit organization

founded on the premise that no one should need to surrender a pet due to financial

concerns. We provide our community with a lower cost high volume spay/neuter clinic,

monthly lower cost vaccine clinics, and weekly TNR clinics. We are looking for an

experienced HQHVSN veterinarian or experienced private practice veterinarian

interested in helping us make this, and more, possible. If you are a compassionate,

positive, motivated, and high-paced surgeon who is willing to help us save Lancaster

County animals one pet at a time, we want you. Our ideal candidate must be

comfortable with small and large, canine/feline spay and neuters, standard/abdominal

cryptorchids, hernias and pyometras as well as dental procedures. Other responsibilities

will include veterinary care for owners in need of our assistance, wellness visits for Pet

Pantry food program pets, and personal pets of our staff. Additional opportunities to

perform specialty surgeries for pet owners in need of our assistance are available.

These procedures include, but are not limited to, enucleation, entropion, leg

amputations, wound repair, and foreign body removal.


Pet Pantry is not your typical high volume, low cost spay/neuter clinic. We are proud to

maintain high, private practice level medical protocols while maintaining lower costs. We

are self-sufficient with a continuous 4.7/5 star customer review and recently celebrated

our 10 th anniversary. Pet Pantry recently completed a remodel of our surgical wing to

increase efficiency and provide a Fear Free environment for our patients. Our clinic has

in-house radiographs, dental equipment including dental x-ray, in-house lab testing, and

handheld, portable ultrasound. Additionally, we have a mobile unit which can be utilized

for remote TNR clinics, vaccine clinics, or adoption events.

We offer a competitive salary, paid continuing education, PVMA membership

reimbursement, paid state/DEA license fees, paid holidays, paid time off, and

discounted services/products for your pets. And you may be eligible for student loan

forgiveness through PSLF. If you are ready to be overwhelmed by pride and satisfaction

and feel appreciated for a job well done, reach out to us to learn more.
