Huntingdon Valley Business Recognized in Firstrust Bank Contest

World of Animals Veterinarians wins Honorable Mention in the bank’s first 'Philly’s Business First Awards.'

World of Animals, a veterinary clinic, located at 2611 Philmont Ave. in Huntingdon Valley, has received Honorable Mention in the inaugural “Philly’s Business First” award by Firstrust Bank.

According to a Firstrust Bank press release on the event, Philly’s Business First Awards were created to, “shine a spotlight on local businesses making a positive difference in the community as nominated and voted on by the public.”

The awards were based upon the number of the public votes made online through Firstrust Bank social media and website. The release states that approximately 400 area businesses were nominated with over 4,500 votes.

The grand prize award recipient received $10,000, while additional prizes from $1,000 to $2,000 were given to the area businesses.

“The nominations we receive exceeded our expectations,” Richard green, Firstrust Bank CEO and vice chairman, said in the release. “The commitment of all the nominees toward community service, honesty and customer service, among many other values, is truly remarkable.”

Green went on to say that the contest illustrates how small businesses are not only the backbone of the region’s business economy, but also its support engine.

Among the Honorable Mentions in the “Philly’s Business First Award” is World of Animals, only one of two recognized businesses in Montgomery County.

According to a previous Patch article, World of Animals had been announced as a finalist in the Firstrust Bank contest by February of this year. World of Animals business manager Connie Griffiths told Patch that the veterinary business caters to busy lifestyles of pet owners by having weekends open and later operating hours. World of Animals can also  host procedures and operations onsite.
