The EPC HOPE Fund was designed to offer financial assistance to pet owners struggling to pay for emergency veterinary services for their pets.  This is a donor supported program that has limited funds.  Funds will be distributed on a case by case basis.  Before EPC HOPE Fund can be considered as an option, pet owners must first fill out a Care Credit application.  If Care Credit is granted, they must use that money before funds can be considered as an option.

There are many pets in need of assistance!  If you are interested in donating to the EPC HOPE Fund please contact us at (651) 454-5684 or feel free to stop by the clinic.  Any and all donations are greatly appreciated and will be put to good use helping out animals in need!  Eagan Pet Clinic and staff also host events to raise money for the fund such as providing nail trims and baths for pets in the community in exchange for donations.  You can follow EPC HOPE Fund on Facebook to see how funds are used to help pets and their families.

 

Tigga Needs Help!

Exactly what happened we assume only Tigga knows but Tigga and his family need help for him to recover from some major trauma. Somehow he escaped through an open door and two days later was found with a fractured femoral head on his left rear limb, fractures of all the metatarsal bones in his right rear and a broken tail. The wound on his foot was infested with maggots as he must have been unable to escape the flies attracted at roadside or wherever he wound up. Despite these injuries sweet Tigga purred all through the emergency care and wound cleaning and bandaging that the doctors and staff at Eagan Pet Clinic have donated! The good news is that Tigga is out of immediate danger and with proper care is expected to make a full recovery. The bad news is that Tigga's loving family is unable to pay for the special surgical care Tigga needs to repair his multiple fractures and injuries which could add up to over $3,500.00. The family has qualified to participate in our EPC Hope Fund program and we again thank all who have donated through participating in our raffles and T shirt purchases and donations. Staff members at the Eagan Pet Clinic have been been generous by donating their time and energy and money to make the fund a reality. Our goal is to prevent needless pain and suffering for pets truly in need in emergency situations and we are thankful to be able to help. If you are interested in helping Tigga or others in similar situations please call 651-454-5684 and and ask for Jackie who will assist you. Our funds are limited so any additional help that comes Tigga's way would be much appreciated!

 

 

 

 

  Maggie Moo Goes to the Dentist

 

Today we began to help cute good natured Maggie Moo who unfortunately is suffering with severe dental disease with numerous broken and infected and abscessed teeth. Maggie's owner dearly loves her and has come seeking help but unfortunately does not have resources at this time to pay for all the care that Maggie needs now. Maggie did quite well today and woke up nicely after over two hours of oral surgery where Dr Schowalter extracted several abscessed teeth and removed infected and broken root tips, not always an easy task on the tiny tooth crowded mouth that a Shih Tzu is born with. The Eagan Pet Clinic is contributing funds to help Maggie Moo but more help is needed as 2 or 3 more hours of oral surgery care is required to complete the 17 teeth in total that need to be addressed.  We are proud to have the EPC Hope Fund available for those in urgent need like Maggie Moo and truly appreciate those who have contributed in the past by making donations of cash or purchased EPC Hope Fund T-Shirts or participated in raffles. Staff members at the Eagan Pet Clinic have been also been generous by donating their time and money to make the fund a reality. Our goal is to prevent needless pain and suffering for pets truly in need in emergency situations and we are thankful to be able to help. If you are interested in helping Maggie Moo or others in similar situations please call 651-454-5684 and and ask for Bri who will assist you.



 

 

 

MEET BELLA HOPE--The EPC HOPE Fund inspiration:
Sweet Bella was presented to us with a longstanding elbow fracture that required specialized surgical intervention. With no financial resources or anyone to care for her Bella's life may have come to an early sad ending. Of course the staff of the Eagan Pet Clinic were not about to see that happen and a mad scramble ensued to save her life. Staff members anonymously put their hard earned donations into an envelope to pay for a board certified surgeon to repair Bella's elbow. Drs. Hansen and Schowalter donated the perisurgical care, anesthesia and clinic resources. Dr. Murphy of Twin Cities Veterinary Surgical Specialists kindly reduced his fee and a life long home was found for Bella. In all, well upwards of $2,000 care was provided to save Bella's young life. Bella is a wonderful sweet puppy who is full of love and life and we are happy to report is doing well at home with her new family.

Unfortunately not all stories end this way. It would be impossible for us to take on every pet and family that needs help for we would soon be out of business. Resources for situations like Bella's are very limited. Bella has inspired us to find a way to try to help pets and families in need in emergency situations. Our hope is avoid the mad scrambles and the tears and the sadness. Thank you Bella for the inspiration for the EPC HOPE Fund!
