Join The “VCA Clackamas Animal Hospital” Team! Location: 16317 SE 82nd Dr, Clackamas, OR 97015
VCA Clackamas is looking to add a Certified Veterinary Technician to our team. We are a 4 DVM, AAHA-accredited, small animal practice, just to the south of Portland. We see cats and dogs, seven days a week, for preventative care, dentistry, and surgeries. We pride ourselves on making a personal connection with every client and pet. We make work-life balance a reality in veterinary medicine. Our hospital is conveniently located near VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists for emergencies and specialty referrals.
The unofficial motto of the city is “Keep Portland Weird”. It means that Portland is a unique, forward-thinking city with a laid-back sensibility and a wonderful view of the world. It is often referred to as the Greenest City in America and in 2012 was listed among the top ten places to live in the United States. Along with the “green culture” it has environmental sensibilities with tons of farmers markets, opportunities for having your own garden and a large backyard chicken raising community. This is an outdoors person’s dream with mountains, beaches, and forest activities within minutes reach. The weather is mild thus ensuring year-round activities and the relatively low population practically guarantees you having the trails to yourself. The city has multiple neighborhoods with their own traits, but all are a pet lover’s paradise. Portland ranks first in the country with the most dog parks per capita and is often voted “Pet Friendliest City in America.”
At VCA Animal Hospitals, you can be the Veterinary Technician you have always wanted to be! We have a unique culture in our hospital that values each person’s skill and personality. There’s something special about you, and we are excited to learn more!
