A full-service animal hospital caring for small animals, avian, pocket pets and exotic patients.

Kindness Pet Clinic is a full-service animal hospital specializing in providing compassionate veterinary care for pets of all shapes and sizes. Located just 12 minutes south of Des Moines in Indianola, we offer quality care for your pet with the added benefit of small-town friendliness and value.

Built-in 2006, our beautiful clinic was founded by Drs. Jayne Tabor and Scott Moline, who has been a part of the Indianola community for over 20 years. Our veterinarians always take the time to listen to your concerns, ask questions, and work alongside you to determine the best care options for your individual pet’s health needs.

In addition to our traditional veterinary services, we also offer after-hours emergency service for our active clients. Please feel free to call and talk to one of our team members to ask questions or inquire about prices.
