Animal Care Centers of NYC
Licensed Veterinary Technician
Must be Licensed-* If you are not licensed we encourage you to apply to our Veterinary Assistant position.*
This position will begin at our Brooklyn Animal Care Center and will be moved in the Spring of 2023 (with the entire Brooklyn team) to our brand new care center at 1906 Flushing Avenue, Ridgewood Queens – just 15 miles from the Brooklyn location. This is a historic opportunity to work at NYC’s first state of the art animal care centers and the first of its kind in the borough of Queens. The space is modern, filled with natural light and has nearly 4 times the space for staff and animals as the Brooklyn care center. During your tenure at the Queens care center, the Brooklyn center will be completely renovated and expanded and you will have the flexibility to consider a position at the new Brooklyn care center once the construction is completed there.

Assist in the provision of medical and surgical care of animals in the shelter. Manages treatment plan of hospitalized patients, performs diagnostics (x-ray, in-house laboratory) and obtains sampling (blood, swabbing), administers medications via all routes, and leads the surgery team. Must be a self-starter with the ability to think critically in order to be a stakeholder in the patients’ treatment plans. Works well independently but as part of a team to ensure timely, quality medical care for all animals in the shelter. This position is based within the medical department at a specific ACC location but flexibility to work at other locations may occasionally be required.
Top 3 reasons our LVT’s like working at ACC:
Our mission of helping homeless animals who otherwise would not have the care they need and deserve. We get to care for animals that have no one, and with our services we help get them someone.
- Coworkers are the best! It’s a great environment to work in despite how busy it can get.
- Interesting and multiplex cases that are rare to see anywhere else, and the array of different types of animals that walk through the door. We see cases and animals that you never wake up and think you’re going to experience.
