The Animal Family Difference

At Animal Family, we not only strive to provide the best care for pets and their families, but also a positive environment for our team members to work and grow. There are a variety of reasons AFVCC stands apart from other veterinary practices, including:

  • Great Salary – Our salary is 20% above average salary in the veterinary industry.
  • Great Team – We foster a collaborative team environment of passionate professionals.
  • Great Benefits – AFVCC offers a range of benefit coverages: Medical, Dental, Life, 401K, PTO and Discounted Vet Services.
  • Personal Growth – We can provide mentorship and continued education.
  • Work-Life Balance – We practice work life balance for most everyone on the team, rather than just promise it; a true 40-hour work week.
  • Never On Call – Because AFVCC is affiliated with a 24-hour emergency service hospital, you will never be on-call for nights and weekends.
