Veterinary Technician - Surgery Prep Tech

Enjoy a rewarding career helping to keep pets with the people who love them; with competitive compensation, a generous holiday schedule, excellent health and retirement benefits, plus a $500 signing bonus.

Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MN SNAP) offers high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to low-income communities, animal shelters, 501(c)(3) rescue organizations and feral cat caretakers. MN SNAP started the first mobile surgery service in Minnesota, and together with its stationary clinic in North Minneapolis, has subsidized more than 160,000 surgeries since April 2010.

As a MN SNAP team member, you’ll have the opportunity to practice the different aspects of delivering high-quality surgery services to dogs, cats and rabbits. The surgery prep technician administers inhalant anesthesia, prepares patients for surgery, and monitors patients in all stages of anesthesia. The surgery prep technician is also responsible for performing limited physical exams on patients.

We prefer that the candidate have both CVT status and private practice or shelter experience in surgery, but we’ll train the right person. Additionally, the candidate must fit the following description: hard working; prompt; ability to interact positively with team members, clients, volunteers, clinic site hosts and vendors; ability to lift 50 pounds on a continual basis; flexibility in scheduling, including working long shifts and some three- to four-day trips; clear communicator; detail-oriented; and skills to manage multiple priorities in a fast-paced environment.

Benefits include:

  • $500 signing bonus
  • Competitive compensation
  • Health and dental insurance
  • Retirement plan with employer matching
  • Short-term and long-term disability insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Condensed work weeks
