Rarebreed Veterinary Partners Completes New Funding Round Led by Existing Investors Halle Capital Management and Trilantic North America


PORTLAND, Maine – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Rarebreed Veterinary Partners (“Rarebreed” or the “Company”), a technology veterinary services platform, today announced the closing of a new round of funding, led by existing investors Halle Capital Management and Trilantic North America, both leading private equity firms. The investment will be used to support Rarebreed’s continued growth through the acquisition of additional veterinary hospitals and the improvement of the services it provides to healthcare teams within its network.

Rarebreed partners with veterinary clinics to provide the best tools and solutions that allow employees to focus on providing the highest quality patient care. Established in 2018, the company currently employs 800 people in 33 clinics in the Northeast, roughly doubling its footprint since the company’s previous fundraiser led by Trilantic North America in September 2020.

“At Rarebreed, we are passionate about taking care of the people who care for animals,” said Dan Espinal, CEO of Rarebreed Veterinary Partners. “We are delighted to announce this new round of funding, which will allow us to continue to offer an exceptional work experience to animal health professionals in our network, while expanding our platform to reach even more people who have dedicated their professional life in veterinary care. ”

“Our goal is to allow veterinary professionals to focus on their business at the top of their profession while Rarebreed does the rest,” said Sean Miller, COO of Rarebreed Veterinary Partners. “We believe this makes a significant difference not only for our patients, but also for the employees in our network. ”

Espinal and Miller retain significant stakes in the business and will continue to lead the company through its next phase of growth.

“Dan and Sean’s leadership has been instrumental in Rarebreed’s rapid growth over the past three years,” said JP Gutfreund, Managing Partner at Halle Capital Management. “We are excited to be a part of the company’s journey and look forward to supporting its continued expansion as it seeks to enhance the work experience of veterinary professionals across the country. ”

“The Rarebreed team continues to impress us with the execution of its strategy and the support of its partners in a high growth environment,” said Jamie Manges, partner at Trilantic North America.

“We are excited to support the team with additional capital to continue investing to meet the growing wave of demand for animal health services,” added Ted Rosenwasser, director at Trilantic North America.

Gunderson Dettmer Stough Villeneuve Franklin & Hachigian, LLP provided legal advice to Rarebreed in connection with the transaction.
