Brief description of Company/Hospital/Clinic:

Khayelitsha is a sprawling urban and informal settlement of more than one million people and home to thousands of dogs and cats. It is a place of both hardship and inspiration, of struggle and extraordinary potential. A place where making a difference is not just a wishful dream, but a vital possibility of vision, achievement and satisfaction.

The South African Mass Animal Sterilisation Trust (SA.MAST) is a successful welfare organisation with an impeccable track record. We have worked since 2009 to radically reduce the number of unwanted or neglected animals in the area, to improve their living conditions, and promote a more humane, compassionate and non-violent society.

To complement our busy sterilisation clinic, we took the decision to establish a new clinic / hospital to meet the needs of sick and injured animals.

To captain this new facility, we seek a motivated professional who truly wants to make a difference.
