At ceremonies held during the 2014 Oregon Veterinary Conference in Corvallis, the OVMA honored several individuals for their service to the veterinary profession. The Awards of Excellence are given annually to deserving people and organizations.
Each year, the Oregon Veterinary Medical Association and the Oregon Animal Health Foundation honor animals who, through unselfish and courageous accomplishments, exemplify the affection, loyalty, security, public service, and value of the human-animal bond. This year, Raido, a search and rescue dog, was inducted into the Oregon Animal Hall of Fame™.
