Associate Veterinarian

Secondhand Hounds is searching for a full time Veterinarian to join our team in the Veterinary Center. We are looking for a self-starter who thrives in a fast paced and changing environment. We are seeking an associate veterinarian to work 4, 10-hour days per week, which includes 1 surgery day each week.

Secondhand Hounds is a 501(c)3 non-profit, foster based organization, located in Minnetonka MN.  In 2019, we created our own veterinary center to focus on our own foster animals' needs. While we have put a big focus on our foster animals, as of 2021, we started seeing pets in our community. SHH is unique that we offer a "marriage" of both rescue animal and owned animal medicine & surgery which allows our veterinarians to see an array of cases!

All revenue generated from owned animals that are seen at our facility are put back into the SHH's general funds to help us continue to save lives and say "yes" to helping animals in need!

At Secondhand Hounds (SHH), we encourage our team to have fun at work while providing excellent medical care to our patients as well as promoting a healthy work life balance. Our clinic culture is based on our 5 core values that define who we are, and we fully embrace them to build our culture.
