Our Approach

Diversity in the veterinary sector

Our founder Sieske Valk, has been working in the veterinary care sector for almost 20 years. She has worked in veterinary practises for nearly ten years in several large cities in the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Utrecht and Leeuwarden).

Yet all her former colleagues are cis-gendered, able-bodied, white people. 

In comparison, the veterinary sector in the UK is predominantly populated by white, able-bodied, and cis-gendered people. We at Autumn Animals believe this is not a correct representation of the city we work in or the population of animal caregivers.

However, we recognise that the veterinary sector has a long way to go and that we are not perfect either. That's is why we continue to develop and educate ourselves. Please get in contact if you have any suggestions or would like to have a conversation.
