Animal hospital for southwest Fort Worth gets council approval

An animal hospital will soon be relocating to southwest Fort Worth as the city council unanimously approved the site plan for the project on June 21.

Hulen Hills Animal Hospital, currently located at 3201 Hulen St., plans to move to 4814 Locke Avenue, south of Interstate 30. The new, two-story facility will be about 23,100 square feet, with 40 indoor kennels, an exercise area and office space among other amenities. The hospital is expected to break ground in the fall and be complete in the fall of 2017.

Along with the animal hospital, the city council made more moves for Fort Worth’s four-legged friends, selecting a contractor to expand the Silcox Animal Care and Control Center at 4900 Martin St.
