Job Description

The Nova Scotia SPCA is hiring full-time and part-time veterinarians.

Nova Scotia SPCA is working hard to build a fun, supportive and busy hospital where we make it a priority to allow a work life balance for staff!  No requirement to work after hours.

We are very well equipped and have built (and are continuing to build) a knowledgeable and skilled surgical support team.


  • Competitive salary – including medical, dental, vision and orthodontic insurance
  • rewarding work environment and a Continuing Education Allowance
  • Association dues and VIN membership
  • Excellent medical and pet supply discount


  • 4 or 8 hour shifts (whatever you prefer with the ability to create your own schedule)
  • Monday to Friday
  • No requirement to work on weekends

Our hospital is located in Sydney, Nova Scotia.  It is a small practice, well-equipped & well-staffed with experienced VTs and VAs with a focus on SPCA owned animals, however, we are open to the public as space is available providing limited services to help meet the community’s needs.

The future is bright for the SPCA in Cape Breton as we intend to build a new shelter in the next couple of years with a large full-service space to practice veterinary medicine open with full services to the public.  This is an opportunity for any veterinarian to help shape a veterinary practice working with us as we grow to meet the needs of the community.
