The Kindness Animal Hospital

The Kindness Animal Hospital, originally located in Alton, was established by Dr. Deane M. Chamberlain in the late 1960s. The hospital later relocated to Pork Hill Road in Ossipee, then finally in the winter of 1975-76 the hospital moved to its final location on Water Village Road. In 1981 the hospital was purchased by Dr. Richard M. Seibel, III. Since its inception in the 1960's, The Kindness Animal has grown from a one doctor facility to its current four doctor and eleven employee practice. We welcomed Dr. Susan Haley to the practice in 1995. It wasn't until 2008 that Dr. Tom Adams joined as a third veterinarian, and in 2013 that Dr. Phil Deitsch came as a part-time veterinarian. Both Dr. Adams & Dr. Deitch retiring in 2017. In March 2016, Dr. Lindsay Lord came to The Kindness Animal Hospital as a full time veterinarian. Dr. Seibel sold the practice to Dr. Lord in August 2016.

We currently have 4 practicing veterinarians, including Dr. Lindsay Lord, Dr. Susan Haley, Dr. Marlene Schmidt and Dr. Julie Adams (Coming to The Kindness Animal Hospital in April 2019). Together with our staff of 11 technicians and receptionists, we provide years of veterinary experience to best care for your pets.

"A total positive regard for all" has always been the mission statement of our hospital. This was a favorite quote of Dr. Deane Chamberlain, meaning that we approach our patients and their people with the utmost respect and consideration of their needs.
