WHO WE ARE
The Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is the third oldest Humane Animal organization in the United States. Our mission is to provide the best possible care for the animals that are relinquished to our shelter before we send them to their new homes. At any time we can house between 80 - 100 dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals. We are the only organization in Rhode Island that has the power to investigate animal abuse and has arresting powers. We are looking for a highly motivated veterinarian to help us continue to care for these animals of abuse, our shelter animals and animals from the community whose owners are unable to provide medical care for due to financial restraints.
We currently have a staff of 25 employees that range from our director, administrative, community outreach, and animal care. As the medical director we would expect that all animals that enter the shelter be given a full examination, vaccinated and sterilized before adoption. We have a small in house exam room and we have access to a full service veterinary hospital next door.
