For opening up his business to pets displaced by forest fires and floods, Dr. Moshe Oz of Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital has been awarded the Greater Westside Board of Trade’s citizen of the year award.
The hospital sheltered and looked after cats and dogs for free for pet owners who were out of their homes because of fire or flood threat.
“Dr. Oz contributes to this community more than people know and it is time to recognize his noble efforts,” said board of trade chairman Bobby Gidda.
