We Create Exceptional Work Experiences, One Person at a Time

Caring For Those Who Provide Care

After decades spent entrusting our pets to excellent veterinary healthcare teams, we saw the daily struggles that staff endured.

From long hours to being underpaid and undervalued, the industry challenges were causing fatigue and early burnout.

There weren’t enough hours in a day to focus on clients, patients, and their business. So, with the support of countless mentors, advisors, friends, and industry contacts, Rarebreed was founded in 2018 in Portland, Maine.

We focus on building trusted, lasting relationships with our partners and teams.

And we continue to create a broad network of practices that value healthcare teams, provide compassionate care, and offer the innovation and tools necessary for them to grow – and most important, be happy.

We believe that if we treat healthcare teams as our most important priority, they will thrive at work and focus on what they love doing most – caring for pets and their owners.

Putting Our Values First

Rarebreed focuses on people, bringing together teams of veterinary professionals to provide the best patient care. We understand the challenges that professionals in this field face. We want each hospital team to concentrate on delivering excellent pet care, while we support their development, culture, and technology.

We believe in and genuinely care for each other, our hospitals, patients, and clients.

We recognize and appreciate our similarities and differences and always treat each other with dignity.

We believe fun is a key ingredient in high-performing teams. Work should be our happy place.

The Rarebreed Way

Our top priority is making work actually work for people.

We know the high demands of the veterinary profession can lead to physical and emotional fatigue among practices. All our teammates deserve to feel valued and appreciated, with access to the tools they need to succeed. We try to make each hospital feel like our only hospital, providing them with the support and resources needed to strengthen their practice and support their teams.

Building a Stronger Community

Our Rarebreed ecosystem breaks the pattern of isolation in the veterinary profession by encouraging collaboration within our broad network of general practices, urgent care clinics, and specialty emergency hospitals.

This empowers our veterinary professionals to utilize the skills they’ve worked hard to perfect – which translates to higher-quality care for all.
