(La Porte County, IN) - A medical facility for pets outside Westville will be available to the public for a visit.
An open house of the Hero Pet Hospital at Indiana 2 and U.S. 421 is scheduled for July 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Officials said that the 5,400-square-foot facility had seen more than 6,300 pets since opening nearly a year ago.
Twenty-four full-time and part-time employees currently work at the facility or twice as many as initially expected.
"We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with the Town of Westville to spur economic development, said La Porte County Commission President Sheila Matias.
The clinic was placed in a newly created economic revitalization area to help reduce the facility's cost. LaPorte County Council President Randy Novak noted how much the facility brightened up that corner of Westville.
"Not only does the Clinic offer easy access to the best veterinary care, it has beautified this very visible corner as well. It shows that when we work together, all things are possible,” said Novak.
The clinic has five exam rooms and offers medical, surgical, dental, and wellness services for dogs and cats.
“I am very excited about the growth opportunities that Hero Pet’s project has created,” said Westville Town Councilman Mike Albert.
