Eagle Creek Animal Clinic has a long history of responsible citizenship. We have tried, and continue to try, to run our business so that it benefits both our local community and our environment.
Over the decades, we have participated in events with the Indy Fever, the Humane Society of Indianapolis, Jamison Camp, Special Olympics Indiana, and many others. Each year, we sponsor an Eagledale Sports Little League Team. We help Daniel Webster School (IPS #346) to send a student to Washington D.C. each spring. We support efforts to provide disaster relief to animals in cases of natural disasters when needed. Our staff has participated as a group in Back to School Backpack Attack, the Mozel Sanders Thanksgiving Dinner, Toys for Tots, and many others. Individual staff members volunteer as tutors, pet foster families, and with other community events. Eagle Creek Animal Clinic also provides discounted animal health care services to several rescue groups, including GRRACE, Italian Greyhound Rescue, and LOLIN.
Most recently, Eagle Creek Animal Clinic is proud to be a partner with Beacon of Hope Crisis Center as they raise money for their program which provides care for pet victims of domestic violence and fosters them. They hope to eventually raise enough funds to start a domestic violence pet shelter. Many abused women are afraid to leave their abusers because they can’t take their pets with them.
Beacon of Hope wants to provide loving temporary foster care and shelter these women’s pets, so that they can be free to break the cycle of abuse. We currently collect material donations for their foster program, and were Top Dog sponsors of the Bow Wow Luau to raise money for Beacon of Hope’s Foster Pet Program.

Perhaps the most long standing relationship the clinic has is with ICAN, the Indiana Canine Assistance Network. ICAN provides assistance dogs for the physically and emotionally disabled.
ICAN has its own breeding program, and when puppies are born, they are placed with a foster family. When the puppies are of age they go to the Women’s Correctional Facility in Plainfield, IN. Residents are given training and supervision to work with these puppies, preparing them for their lifelong careers. As the pups grow, they spend time with both foster families, receiving the socialization they need to succeed in public; and in the prison, getting the training they need to assist their final owners. The dogs are loved and supported during this training process, and at 2 years of age become the helper and friend of a physically and/or emotionally challenged person. This program is if great benefit to the women in the correctional facility, as well as ultimately for the dog’s owner. Eagle Creek Animal Clinic is proud to provide healthcare to all ICAN program pups at a discounted rate, and one of our veterinarians donates her time in this manner.
Eagle Creek Animal Clinic desires to be a good steward of our earth. To that end, we recycle everything produced in the course of our day that can be recycled. We have moved our procedures from paper dependence to a more paper-light model, and we are striving to continue this trend. We participate in the LampTracker program, safely storing and shipping our fluorescent bulbs to approved recycling facilities. We work with TechRecyclers to safely and securely dispose of outdated electronic and computer components.
