we're cookin' somethin' good, just for you

After a decade of working in vet med, we decided something had to change.
People must come first.

leading with purpose

We hope to do a whole lot of good for a whole lot of people through our work.

our mission

to inspire, empower, and support the people of vet med.

our vision

a unified pet care collective of happy, hardworking humans.

our core values

"hound c.a.r.e.s."

Community:

We put people first. Hound is focused on strengthening human connection, culture, and collaboration.

Agility:

We embody speed and growth. Hound is focused on decisiveness, action, and rapidly delivering solutions for vet med.

Results:

We celebrate results. Hound is focused on data, performance, and goal attainment.

Excellence:

We commit to being our best. Hound is focused on innovation, satisfaction, and surprise.

Sympathy:

We offer compassion. Hound is focused on being vulnerable, understanding, and caring for others.

our culture code

"hound habits"

Make it better:

We are firm believers in continuous improvement and growth mindset. We are humble people who want to improve the world within and around us. Things will never be perfect, but you can always make it better.

Embrace the wind:

Wind extinguishes a candle and energizes a fire. Take risks, embrace the uncertain, welcome challenge and failure, rebound, and grow. Be a bonfire among candles.

Bake more cookies:

We can either fight over the cookie jar (competition), share one cookie (compromise), or bake more warm cookies together so everyone can enjoy (collaboration). Focus on building more win/win/win scenarios and rejecting zero-sum games. Chocolate chip or sugar?

Punt the skunks*:

Skunks spray “negativity” onto others, and eventually, everyone starts stinking. Protect each other and our culture at all costs. Don't be stanky. *No skunks were harmed in the making of this habit.
