Bring peace to pets, comfort to clients, and balance to your own life.
About Doorstep Vet
Founded in 2016, Doorstep Vet is an exclusive mobile euthanasia practice serving Austin and the surrounding communities. It was started by Dr. Casey Hill in an effort to improve her own quality of life as she struggled to find her place in the demanding and often thankless world of veterinary medicine.
Since that time, we have grown to be able to serve more of our community and, even more importantly, bring the peace and wellbeing that comes with this career to more veterinarians. As we’ve grown, we have been dedicated to the idea that Doorstep Vet is here to serve, first and foremost, the people who work for it, not just its owners. We are able to do that by accomplishing one of our other important company values which is to provide comfort and aid to pets and families during end-of-life.
Our Company Values
We believe that a company should have defined company values which exist as a guiding light for the individual members of the team. It allows us to present a united experience to our clients and helps us to make decisions in situations that are not straightforward.
Most of all, our company values unite us as a team. Anyone joining our team should feel that their personal values can be aligned with our company values in the context of their work. This is vital for the individual team member to be fulfilled and satisfied with their work and it is equally important for our company to continue to thrive.
Without further ado, these are Doorstep Vet’s company values listed in order of precidence:
We act ethically
We exist to provide our employees with a great job
We make a difficult time easier for our clients and patients
We believe in equitable pricing and compensation
We recognize that we don’t have the full picture*
*we withhold judgement and acknowledge that we do not have all of the information that led a family and pet to their current situation (this thought process also applies to our interactions with each other, vendors, support teams, et cetera)
*No positions availabe at this time though we are accepting resumes for future consideration.
