Home » Core Values
All members of Kiln Creek Animal Care believe in and practice these core values:
INTERGRITY: We believe that being responsible, helpful, fair and honest will help us to best serve our patients and their owners. We follow through on promises and treat every client and animal with the same high standard of professional integrity.
RESPECT: We strive to follow the golden rule in our interactions with clients and each other. This means being courteous and polite, but also means that we work hard to communicate well, recognizing that each staff member and client is unique.
TEAMWORK: We understand that we can only achieve our mission and goals by working together. No single person is more important than another and each person plays an important role in providing the best possible care for every patient and every client that we encounter.
Together Everyone Accomplishes More
COMPASSION: We believe that every animal should be treated as if it were one of our own. We are advocates for the health and well-being of each pet, giving a voice to those that cannot physically speak.
EXCELLENCE: We continuously strive for excellence. We never stop learning and working to improve our skills, programs and services.
