Metroland Media, a community media company in Canada who publishes local area newspapers, recently announced its 2015 Ajax/Pickering Reader’s Choice Award winners and Pickering Animal Hospital is the winner of the Gold Award in the veterinarian category as voted by readers of the Ajax/Pickering News Advertiser. Dr. Smith was informed by a representative of Metroland Media by email that Pickering Animal Hospital will receive mention of the win in print and will be presented with a plaque later on this year.
“We are certainly delighted to be recognized for the hard work we put into healing pets and keeping them healthy and it’s definitely a morale booster for the staff knowing the community really appreciates what we do here,” said Dr. Smith. She further added, “That’s why we’re putting an ad in the Ajax/Pickering News Advertiser expressing our gratitude to the community and thanking them for voting for us and honoring us with this award.”
This is the second time Pickering Animal Hospital has won the award in the business’ twenty eight year history.
The Reader’s Choice Awards have been in existence for over twenty years and celebrate business excellence in the community. All readers of the Ajax/Pickering News Advertiser are welcome to vote every September for their local favorites. The awards are held annually and the winners are announced every autumn.
Readers of the local newspaper are invited to vote for their favorite businesses in many categories which include, but are not limited to, automotive repair, mortgage services, dental services, restaurants, legal services, computer repair and sales, veterinary services, printing services and hair dressing.
The voting process is simple. Voters are able to go online and nominate the businesses they feel have demonstrated business excellence in their respective categories for that year. Once that is done, the newspaper staff informs the winners and announces the news in a future issue of the Ajax/Pickering News Advertiser.
A representative of Metroland Media congratulated Pickering Animal Hospital on their win and stated the awards offer, “… an opportunity for the readers to speak out.” And further added, “This is a prestigious award and [it] lends credibility to your business.”
