Who Are We
Animals Fiji is a nonprofit charity on a mission to provide a lifeline to as many animals in Fiji as

pets as well as wildlife. We operate as a welfare agency operating outreach programs and clinics
throughout Fiji.

Our Nadi clinic, where this position would be based, also functions a shelter taking in strays, injured
and abused animals, who are treated and rehomed. The shelter has a capacity limit of 35 animals
with additional boarding facilities for up to 10 animals.

One of our most critical goals is to reduce the epidemic of stray and diseased roaming dog and cat
populations that plague villages, towns rural areas, through spay/neuter programs. We ensure
basic—yet high quality—veterinary services and animal care education are available to as many
Fijians as possible.

wellbeing for the animals of Fiji. You would do this in a friendly manner with compassion and
empathy for clients, sponsors, donators despite cultural variances and language challenges.
In additional to working with the owned animals (mostly small, but sometimes large), we need
someone who can multi-task and work with our Shelter Supervisor and support team. to ensure best
practice shelter medicine is followed for our Nadi shelter.

Our dream Veterinarians will contribute to the process of strategic organization, disease prevention,
