About Friends of the Manchester Anim
We are an animal shelter formed in 1996. We help the community of Manchester NH with strays, surrenders and community programs such as Fix A Pit, pet food pantry and many more. We are looking to hire a full time veterinarian to join our wonderful team. This job is rewarding, to be able to make a difference in the lives of so many animals but also be able to follow cases from start to finish which can be more difficult in a traditional practice setting. If you are looking for a rewarding job, have the ability to make a difference and want to work with a great team, then look no further. We may be a small shelter but we give so much and are excited for the bright future ahead.
