I’M A VETERINARIAN. 
WHAT’S YOUR SUPERPOWER?
Veterinarian with Pup




When you dreamed of becoming a veterinarian, you dreamed of helping animals. Working at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control is about just that.  It’s 100 percent about caring for dogs and cats that need you. Not only is it personally and professionally fulfilling, it offers benefits that go far beyond your paycheck and paying off student loans.

Here, you will experience a rewarding career that offers meaningful work, a consistent paycheck that doesn’t change from week to week, great health and pension benefits and a healthy work-life balance. Did we mention that you’ll be saving lives? You might be surprised to know that we consistently find good outcomes for 95 percent of the animals that enter our shelter system.

Quote WhiteThere is no greater feeling than knowing you are making a difference in a homeless animal’s life that may have never felt love, received medical care, or had a home with consistent meals. Watching their personalities emerge as they heal mentally and physically is the most rewarding experience.  

I am proud to be a part of an organization that provides an excellent work-life balance while supporting my views on the benefits of spaying and neutering, animal welfare, and making a difference in our community."
