The Details

Hiring in the Following Service Area Locations: 

  • Service Area: East Bay, San Francisco, and Marin Counties

Who We Are:

PetHospice is a well-established and rapidly growing hospice and end-of-life service started in the Bay Area of California in 2012 by Dr. Shea Cox, one of the country’s most respected leaders in hospice and end-of-life care.

We take an interdisciplinary approach to care and our team consists of Veterinarians, RVTs, Care Coordinators, and Pet Loss Specialists providing superior in-home care.

We do not take the place of the primary care veterinarian or specialist, but rather work collaboratively with them to provide adjunctive in-home options for palliative care and end-of-life services.

What Makes Us Different?

  • We make sure we take care of each other as well as the families we care for; our job can be emotional, and we support each other daily through laughter and humor
  • We work as a team, and our team is arguably the greatest one on earth – you will be fully supported every single day
  • We are a highly creative and out-of-the-box team that continually pushes the boundaries of how we can do things better for the families we care for, and for each other

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead with heart, always :)
  • Work with our doctors to provide in-home hospice and palliative care, pain management
  • Provide in-home and virtual Quality of Life Assessments, helping guide families through end-of-life decisions and preparing them for loss
  • In-home nursing visits to perform rechecks and physical exams (being the "eyes" of the doctor), in-home diagnostics (blood pressure, blood work, UA), medication administration, client education

Details and qualifications:

  • Position open to California licensed RVTs
  • Part-time and full-time positions available
  • The organization will provide specific training and mentorship on hospice and end-of-life care
  • Must have a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance, and a dependable vehicle
  • Must be able to lift 50 lbs at minimum
  • Need to be easy-going, level-headed and enjoy a wry (sometimes off-color :) sense of humor; must have an astute attention to detail and a sharp mind for learning; compassion and a gentle demeanor go without saying (we are after "hearts and smarts" :)


  • Based on experience, availability, and role within the organization 
  • Full time positions offer medical benefits, PTO, CE
  • Car allowance for travel
  • Potential for growth and an expanded role within the organization for the right candidate
