A nonprofit, full-service animal hospital right here in Eden Prairie? Yes, you heard right, in fact, you’ve surely driven past the hospital many times. Mission Animal Hospital, located on the frontage road just before the Vikings training facilities, is another community partner that makes Eden Prairie such a desirable place to live and work.
In 2014, Dr. Susan Miller purchased the practice and converted it into the first nonprofit, full-service animal hospital in the Midwest. The goal of the hospital is to remove the financial barriers to care for all pet owners. In order to provide everyone access to high-quality and affordable care Mission offers a two-tier pricing structure. Clients who can afford it, pay rates on par with area averages, and, in doing so, help ensure those pet owners struggling to afford good care can keep their pets. Low-income clients pay discounted rates.
Mission doctors see appointments, perform surgery and treat walk-ins seven days a week from 9 AM to 6 PM. On August 1st the hours will be extended to 11:30 PM to provide an affordable alternative to emergency clinics.
60 nonprofit rescue groups in the area have partnered with Mission Animal Hospital to provide high-quality care at the lowest possible prices to help them re-home abandoned animals.
Additionally, in 2016 Mission Animal Hospital received lead gifts to specifically serve the pets of Seniors and Veterans in the community. As a result, Mission Animal Hospital is serving this summer at the ICA Food Shelf Resource Fair and Crystal VFW treating pets of veterans. Mission Animal Hospital is creating some incredible stories of happiness, health and hope.
