What We Believe

The Space Between

“The Space Between” is what we call the special bond that connects people with their pets. We’re always looking for ways to maximize that bond – a mission reflected in our name: People. Animals. Revolutionary Care.

  • People first. What truly motivates us is the impact we make on people. That’s why The PARC is designed to support and reassure you, with an open atmosphere and mostly-glass walls, so you always understand what’s happening with your pet even when they’re out of your arms.
  • Animals at the heart of it. Not only do we offer veterinary expertise, the latest technology and fast on-site testing, we customize care to each pet’s unique needs. We can even perform outdoor exams for pets who don’t like the indoors.
  • Revolutionary Care throughout. The focus on the person, not just the animal, is revolutionary in our business. 24 hours a day, we’re here to help you both feel better, play more and love longer.

Journey to The PARC

Dr. Steve Hotchkiss purchased Hulen Hills Animal Hospital in 1994, later adding on Metro West Emergency Veterinary Center and The Grand Pet Resort & Salon – but he always dreamed of a larger facility designed with both people and animals in mind. In 2018, that dream came true with The PARC, a 25,000-square-foot facility replacing Hulen Hills and Metro West. The PARC offers the same ownership, services and prices – with nearly seven times the space. The PARC Grand Resort, our luxury boarding and salon location, is committed to the same philosophy of People, Animals, Revolutionary Care.

We Give Back

Since 2011, we have partnered with Canine Companions for Independence® to provide over $80,000 of complimentary wellness and emergency veterinary care to the service dogs in training that are being raised in Fort Worth. To date, we’ve been honored to take care of 34 puppies on their path to becoming the priceless best friend of a disabled adult or child. Learn more
