Westville is marking the beginning of what it is calling a significant redevelopment project. The Hero Pet Animal Hospital, which will initially create 10 jobs in the La Porte County community, is the first to receive an Economic Revitalization Area designation in the town’s history.

The animal hospital received the ERA designation in September. The 5,400-square-foot facility will include five exam rooms and offer medical, surgical, dental, and wellness services for dogs and cats.

“We have spent more than two years, including COVID-related delays, working on the site selection, engineering, design of the building and working closely with the La Porte County Office of Community and Economic Development to secure the Town of Westville’s first ever Economic Revitalization Area Designation, all amidst the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Lisa Booth, co-founder of Hero Pet. “Beginning construction on our new building is a great milestone for Hero Pet.”

Financial terms of the project were not immediately disclosed. The new animal hospital is expected to open in spring 2021.

    This is wonderful news and as a former client of Dr. Booths I truly cannot wait to bring my animals back into her service. For her it is truly about what is best for the animals. She treats all of them as she would her own.
