Animal Hospital Team!
Care-Pets Animal Hospital and Wellness Center was founded on
this very philosophy by Joan V. Evinger, D.V.M., Care-Pets current
owner. Dr. Evinger wanted to practice the best veterinary
care in an environment comfortable for both pets and owners.
On March 16, 1987, Care-Pets Animal Hospital opened its doors at
7610 Old State Road 60 in Sellersburg, Indiana.
It was not long before Care-Pets began to grow, and the need for
more space became apparent. In October 2001, Care-Pets Animal
Hospital moved down the road to its current location at 8800 Old
State Road 60. This new facility provided much needed
additional space. The spacious lobby and four exam rooms were
designed with the comfort of our patients, clients, and staff in
mind. The new facility also provided the necessary space to
accommodate all of our specialized diagnostic procedures including
a surgery suite, radiology, and lab to name a few.

animal needs. Dr. Evinger and Dr. Elkins are committed to
practicing excellent veterinary medicine in caring for your beloved
