about indy vet care

Indy Veterinary Care

Our mission is to provide high quality medical care in a compassionate, courteous and low stress environment. We ensure the comfort and well-being of your pets throughout their life and partner with you to make educated health care decisions. Indy Veterinary Care was founded by Dr. Sara Organist as an alternative to large, impersonal or corporate veterinary practices. We are locally and family owned, and pride ourselves on providing individualized care to our patients and their families.

Our Namesake

Dr. Organist named the practice after her beloved first dog, Indy. Dr. Organist rescued Indy during her first year of veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania and enjoyed 15 wonderful, fun, loving years with her. Our name also sets us apart as an independent, local, family business with roots in our community.
