At the awards ceremony, Rosie and the other four finalists received trophies, flowers and cheers. Rosie and her owners, Larry and Jo Gore, graciously accepted the awards and then donated the $1,000 and the year of free Rolling Pet Vet services to the Santa Barbara division of the Dog Adoption & Welfare Group.

“We would like for the cash and the free vet services to go towards getting an older dog the care it needs and a chance at adoption,” Larry Gore said.

Rolling Pet Vet also celebrated the grand opening of the mobile veterinary hospital and the launch of its website, RollingPetVet.com. The celebration included a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce President Steve Cushman, food catered by Taqueria La Colmena, and the open bar were sponsored by Oreana Winery, American Health International, Jorgensen and Abaxis.

Rolling Pet Vet is now officially open for business and servicing the greater Santa Barbara area with quality low stress veterinary care at your doorstep in a state-of-the-art mobile hospital.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
