Job Description:

TO APPLY - Submit Application at: Summary: ASPCA Community Medicine provides access to high quality spay/neuter and primary veterinary care services to NYC's most underserved communities with little to no access to veterinary clinics and to animals in the care of NYC animal welfare organizations.
