A Brief History of Kindness:
Kindness Animal Hospital was founded in 1956, making it one of the two oldest existing veterinary hospitals in Montgomery County. The hospital was originally located on Georgia Avenue just south of University Boulevard. In 1971, Kindness relocated to its current building at the corner or University Boulevard and Amherst Avenue. Over the years at this new location, many errant cars have found their way into the hospital's flower bed; in the 1990s, we even had one come through our waiting room window! The county has since erected a barrier to prevent such inappropriate parking.
For such an established practice, Kindess has had little doctor turnover. Dr. Carl W. Smith founded the hospital in 1956 and practiced here until retirement in 1982. Dr. Stuart M. King practiced here from 1967 to 1993. Dr. Marc S. Katz joined the practice in 1978 and became a partner 4 years later. Dr. Jeff Zolkiewicz joined the hospital in 1994 and became a partner 5 years later. In June 2007, Dr. Zolkiewicz became the owner of the practice. – less–ZoomInfo
