Spirit of Service

The human-animal bond and supporting organizations that serve the most vulnerable through a connection with animals has never more important.

The Kansas City Animal Health Corridor (KCAHC) initiated the Spirit of Service program to recognize not-for-profit organizations that work to improve the health and lives of both animals and people. Animalytix is proud to be a primary sponsor of the Spirit of Service program.

“Our commitment to the Spirit of Service program is a natural fit with the company’s mission to support the animal health industry. We often say that our industry is more humane than the human medical industry and a big part of that is the human animal bond that we experience on a daily basis. Animals enrich our lives in so many ways and those organizations that bring those experiences into the lives of children, the elderly or those that may be suffering from a physical or emotional trauma or illness are worthy of our support.”

— Chris Ragland, CEO of Animalytix
