It plans to add 45 employees this year.

AUSTIN, TX — Veterinary management group Pathway has relocated its support team to a 15,500 square-foot, open-style office space within the historic Seaholm Power Plant in downtown Austin, TX.

The new space is over four times as large as Pathway’s previous office and “will accommodate the rapid growth the company experienced throughout 2017 and the projected growth for 2018,” according to a press release.

“Having our offices in Austin’s dynamic downtown will enable us to foster and grow the vibrant culture we’ve created,” said Dr. Stephen Hadley, a veterinarian and CEO of Pathway. “This will allow us to continue offering support to our ever-expanding teams nationwide and aid in increasing the local appeal of our fast-growing company.”

In 2017, Pathway grew organically and by acquisition, adding nearly 100 hospitals for a total of more than 125 locations throughout the U.S. Additionally, the company added over 800 employees, growing to over 2,500 employees in total.

Pathway’s new office is located at 800 West Cesar Chavez St.

The support team is currently located in about half of the new space as additional renovations take place. The remaining renovations, which include outfitting the space with new offices, collaboration areas and additional customizations, are expected to be completed early in 2018.

Pathway expects to add more than 45 employees to its support team this year.

The Seaholm Power Plant was a functioning power station until 1989. The building sat dormant for over 10 years before being redeveloped into a mixture of office, retail and restaurant space. Tenants began occupying the facility beginning in 2015.

In 2012, the Pathway team moved into a 200 square-foot office above Westlake Animal Hospital, one of Pathway’s original hospitals. After an investment from Morgan Stanley Global Private Equity in August of 2016, the support team relocated across town to a 3,500-square-foot office in Hyde Park.

Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Austin, Texas, Pathway has grown from a single veterinary practice to more than 125 locations in 26 states.

New Hampshire legislators are considering a ban on “no pets” notices in property listings.

Proposed legislation would forbid landlords and home sellers from barring pet owners, the Concord Monitor reports.

They could make rules related to pet deposits, noise control, sanitation and safety, according to the newspaper. But they could set make rules based on size, breed or appearance.

The legislation was proposed by state Rep. Ellen Read, a Democrat from Newmarket. It has drawn opposition from some landords who say it could lead to unsanitary conditions as well as allergy problems for some residents.

But Julia Seeley, New Hampshire state director for the Humane Society, said her organization supports the bill.

We just strongly believe that a family should not be torn apart simply over housing,” she said.
