Veterinary hospital open a decade

Frontier Veterinary Hospital is celebrating 10 years at its current location with a community event to benefit Washington County’s Bonnie L. Hays Animal Shelter and the nonprofit Cat Adoption Team.

The event will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 20, at 4500 N.E. Cornell Road in Hillsboro. Admission is free and funds will be raised with paid activities including a dunk tank, dog wash and raffle. Food and refreshments will be available, including free snow cones.

Also attending the event will be “Luna,” a therapy dog, and representatives from the Hillsboro Dog Association, Canine Companions for Independence, the Dove Lewis Animal Hospital and Tanasbourne Animal Emergency.

Frontier started in 1947 as the Soderholm Veterinary Hospital at a different location in Hillsboro. Dr. Scott Loepp joined the staff in 1984, purchased the hospital 10 years later and renamed it Frontier Veterinary Hospital.
