What if staffing wasn’t a constant stress?
We know your struggle.
A zillion things to do, and staffing is always a headache. Hire someone, lose someone. Fill a shift, find out four more need to be filled. Every time you make progress, something else happens to the precious schedule you created so carefully. You’re not alone.
Across the veterinary field, 66% of full time job posts get 0 responses. That is STAGGERING.
The new reality: want full time vets? you need relief vets!
Why? Many vets…
…are using relief work to secretly look for full time jobs. Vets don’t want to sign on after one interview anymore. They’ve been burned enough times that they want to “test drive” a practice multiple times. Some vets don’t even realize there are great-fit practices out there until they accidentally find one through relief work.
Stop banging your head against the wall using staffing techniques that are doomed to fail!
DISCOVER THE FUTURE OF STAFFING WITH
We host a popular jobs platform trusted by thousands of vets and techs across the U.S. More than 77% of our vets and techs are open to full or part time jobs.
Relief Rover’s employer membership was created for you if:
You’Re going crazy seeing no results
Despite job posts, social media outreach, and ridiculous signing bonuses… nada
You think you don’t need relief vets
You’ll take relief vets if necessary; you need short term or full time employees
You’re getting more and more discouraged
No matter what you do, staffing is a huge challenge. It’s causing constant turmoil
You’re open minded
You can see that old staffing methods aren’t working anymore. You are raring to try something new
“We upgraded to a full enterprise subscription bringing on all of our practices.”
“After working with Relief Rover on a pilot with a portion of our hospitals, we upgraded to a full enterprise subscription bringing on all of our practices. The ROI is definitely there. Renewal was a no-brainer.”
— Chris Wilkins
Director of Talent Acquisition, NVA Compassion-First
WE CONSTANTLY HEAR FROM LEADERS LIKE YOU:
“Where are all the veterinarians??”
we have 4,089+ vets. 100 more join monthly.
"How do you attract so many vets?!"
We’ve developed our platform while professing our love for our fellow vets and techs! We shower them with resources, tools, discounts, and more. We care for them deeply and show it. That’s why thousands of them flock to Relief Rover.
"How can Relief Rover help my practice?"
Our platform is here to help you build relief relationships while showing them how amazing your practice is. You have the power to nurture these relationships — they have the potential to result in part time or full time employees.
Get access to the Relief Rover platform that hundreds of clinics have used to staff their practices. Build lasting relationships with vets and techs; offer positions to those who become your favorites. That way is better for you, too — you will only offer employment to your favorite vets and techs. It’s a recipe that’s more likely to lead to long-term satisfaction for everyone.
"Why is it so hard to hire vets right now?"
It’s sad but true: Some vets and techs are so burned from past experiences that they’ve completely lost faith. Some of them don’t even believe that happy, healthy practices exist. If they could just experience a positive work environment, they would believe again.
"How is Relief Rover different?"
Our highly regarded employer membership includes the two familiar parts of veterinary staffing:
(1) a job board where you can post ads and
(2) a pool of vets and techs (you can search them on our site).
But we’re different because we’ve created a low cost, all-inclusive subscription for you. No wheeling or dealing… No muss, no fuss. Just everything you need in one place, including access to the thousands of members we care for deeply.
Dr. Cindy Trice: founder, CEO, and trusted relief expert
Why are we uniquely trustworthy?
Unlike other platforms, Relief Rover is run by experienced + trusted relief experts
Hi, I’m Dr. Cindy Trice! During my 15+ years as a relief vet, I’ve recognized “the great divide” between staff and employers. I’ve spent 10+ years working with industry pros to understand what causes practices to scramble for employees.
Due to industry shifts, old ways of staffing are obsolete. Vets and techs are struggling to rediscover their initial passion. That’s why I started Relief Rover. Our relief-centered solutions are already helping hundreds of practices eliminate crushing problems with short term staffing, long term staffing, and mental health.
We want to prep your practice for success in an unprecedented era. Our team, technology, and vision just get stronger with time. This is the perfect moment to join the Relief Rover family!
“I am blessed and grateful to Relief Rover for connecting me with an excellent relief veterinarian.”
“The veterinarian has excellent veterinary skills and knowledge managing the cases implementing excellent veterinary medicine. The veterinarian is personable communicating effectively and professionally with our staff and our clients. Furthermore, she responds to all communications in a timely manner and willing to assist with last minute requests to accommodate our scheduling needs. When she is the doctor on duty, I always feel that the patients, clients, and hospital team are in good hands with her at the helm. She is wonderful and we are grateful to have her on our relief team.”

Frequently asked questions
Who is Relief Rover NOT for?
those expecting immediate success
We created our jobs platform to help vets and techs connect with employers like you. Just like a dating app, sometimes matches happen quickly. Other times, building relationships takes time. We can’t guarantee immediate success.
Be sure your job posts highlight the special qualities of your practice. Each time you post, give it some time. We promise to keep expanding our network to increase everyone’s chances of a successful connection.
those only interested in old methods of staffing
We want you to be successful, so our philosophy is based on the new reality. Many vets are no longer interested in the old process of apply > interview > accept full time job. Instead, many vets are using relief work to try different practices before eventually accepting positions.
Here’s how to successfully increase hires and decrease turnover: form relationships with relief vets early and often, treat relief vets as part of your team, and maintain an enthusiastic practice culture. If this doesn’t sound feasible for you, Relief Rover is not for you.
those who want to negotiate our pricing
Our pricing structure is the absolute lowest in the profession. We designed it that way because our overall goal is to increase quality of life, not to make boatloads of money. Thank you for understanding that we cannot offer further discounts on our ridiculously low pricing.
Is the price a monthly fee or an annual fee?
We offer both. Our best value is the annual membership. For both monthly (basic level) and annual (elite level) memberships, there is a fee for each practice location that needs Relief Rover.
If you have more than 9 practices, we offer special pricing (email [email protected]).
Can I pay for one practice location, but find staff for multiple practices?
No. Our pricing is just too low for that! If we allowed that, our business would become unsustainable and our platform would cease to exist.
If you want to staff multiple practices, each practice will be charged its own subscription fee. Each practice location will enjoy unlimited Relief Rover privileges — unlimited job posts, unlimited candidate outreach, unlimited shifts, and unlimited hires. Never any additional fees.
If you have more than 9 practices, we offer special pricing (email [email protected]).
After I sign up, will you try to upsell me later?
Absolutely not. We always feel gross when others try to upsell us, so we didn’t want to do that to you.
The only thing to remember is that we charge a subscription fee for each of your practice locations that needs Relief Rover. Each of those locations enjoys unlimited privileges.
Your Relief Rover membership includes absolutely everything you need. You’ll never be charged a dime more than your subscription fee.
To be clear:
- No fees when you contact one of our members.
- No fees for job posts.
- No fees when you book a shift.
- No buyout fees when you want to hire a member part time or full time.
- You can go through any of those actions as MANY times as you want and you will NEVER get charged an additional fee.
Do you offer individual job posts or candidate searches separately for a discount?
Not at this time. Most of the time, practices have trouble finding and hiring staff because they are using old methods of staffing like single job posts targeting full time positions and specific dates.
We would be doing you a disservice to sell you job posts and candidate searches a la carte. That’s why we started a ridiculously low-priced subscription model that includes unlimited perks. That means unlimited job posts, unlimited candidate searches, unlimited shifts, and unlimited hires.
Can I make posts for full time positions?
SHORT ANSWER: Absolutely!
LONG ANSWER: We recommend posting for relief positions to start off your relationships. After you’ve worked with a vet or tech you like for awhile, ask what kind of job offer would entice them. This is the new, more productive method of veterinary staffing.
Remember, many vets and techs are traumatized by previous work experiences. They may be using relief work to secretly test drive practices before considering employment. Some vets and techs have lost faith that happy, healthy practices are out there at all. They need to experience a positive work environment to believe it.
So build relief relationships while proving how amazing your practice is. That way is better for you, too — you will only offer employment to your favorite vets and techs. It’s a recipe that’s more likely to lead to great fits and long term satisfaction for everyone.
What should I do if I don't find any vets or techs in my area?
Don’t worry! Every month, roughly 100 vets (or more) join Relief Rover. We gain about 20 techs a month.
Also, some vets and techs choose to hide their profiles from time to time. Their schedules may be temporarily full, or they may have decided to keep their relief work private from their current employers. That’s why it’s important to keep using your unlimited job posts so they can find you in job search. (See also the FAQ below: “What does it mean to be visible on your site? Are all your members visible?”)
Imagine you were fishing for potential matches on a dating app. What tactic would be more successful: Giving up after a day or a month? Or patiently continuing to put yourself out there and sorting through any promising matches that come your way?
If you don’t find matches right away, be patient. We’re constantly working to expand our network to increase everyone’s chances of success. : )
What does it mean to be "visible" on your site? Are all your members visible?
For employers: After you post your first job, you’ll automatically be visible in our practice directory as long as you’re a member.
To be found in our job search, all you have to do is post a job.
For vets and techs: They can show or hide their profiles at any time. They may hide their profiles if they don’t want to be found by their current employers, or if their current schedules are fully booked. That’s why we recommend posting for relief positions frequently so that vets and techs can find you on our job board.
Do you screen your vet and tech members?
We don’t screen the vets and techs on our site, nor do we screen the employers. It’s an equal opportunity platform.
Instead of “one size fits all”, we operate with a “there is someone for everyone” mindset – both when it comes to vets and techs and when it comes to veterinary employers.
We’re proud to have veterinarians that practice on every species, from small animal to large animal to exotics and more. We have vets that cover every scope of practice, from general practice to emergency medicine to specialty medicine. Our relief veterinarians have varying levels of experience and skills.
We hope you enjoy finding the vets and techs that “click” with your practice!
What if I struggle with technology?
Our platform is extremely easy to learn. It’s just a few clicks to log in, post a job, or search for vets and techs. If you can send an email, you can learn our platform.
SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Complete your profile
In a few quick clicks, create a company profile that will make professionals jump for joy when they’re hired.

After you’ve made contact with a professional, determine pay rates and schedules. No middle man. Easy peasy.
