The RVT will be responsible for providing excellent medical care to more than 1,400 animals per year. Our sheltered pets need preventative care, acute and chronic case management, and spay/neuter surgeries. CHA's veterinary technician has a hands-on role directly with the shelter's dogs and cats and while the role does not involve directly working with members of the public, the technician will work closely with all other CHA staff members and volunteers.
