    Incredible opportunity shared by the Koret Shelter Medicine Program team today! 

    Are you ready to add your expertise to a game-changing program for animals and the people that love them?

    In a historic move, the governor of California tapped the Koret Shelter Medicine Program (KSMP) to lead a five-year, 50 million dollar initiative not only to recover from the pandemic but also to realize California's goal of becoming a truly humane state that does not euthanize healthy or treatable animals. Originally proposed in 2019 and put on pause by the pandemic, the California legislature voted to make it official with the 2021 state budget.  

    That's where you come in! 

    KSMP is hiring a California State Director to lead the kind of large-scale change initiatives that have a huge impact and squeeze every ounce of opportunity out of this statewide pilot. More animals pass through shelters in California than in any other state in the nation; we're hoping the innovations that allow us to get it right here will serve as an example for the rest of the United States.
