Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital’s Continuing History in the Park Slope, Brooklyn NY Area

Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital was founded by Dr. Mark Gibson in 1990 as a house-call practice for pets. The original office was based in his home in Brooklyn. Dr. Gibson saw a need for pet owners to have a veterinarian come to their homes to provide examinations, vaccinations, and treatment.

In April 1991, the practice expanded to its own building and moved to 7th Avenue and 13th Street, in Park Slope. Then in May 1995, Animal Kind moved to a state-of-the-art facility at our current location. We now have more than 60 employees here to help you and your pet.
