Every month the Business After Five is the best place for those in the business community to meet some new faces and re-connect with some familiar ones. Experts agree that networking is the single most powerful marketing tool to accelerate and sustain success for any individual or organization. After all, people do business with those they Know, Like and Trust.
In 2012, the Stratford Branch of the OSPCA became a community-based charity, the Stratford-Perth Humane Society. At that time, staff and volunteers recognized a need for a bright, clean facility where both the pets and potential adopters would feel welcome. Following a successful capital campaign, Gloria’s Place was opened in October 2016. This renovated building is home to the Stratford-Perth Humane Society and includes cat colonies, dog kennels with outdoor access and a special room where those looking for a new pet can meet those pets needing homes.
The Stratford Perth Humane Society is the leader in animal welfare in our communities. Through our education programs, camps and clubs we teach children the importance of responsible pet ownership. Their trained staff offer support for pet behaviour concerns while their animal care team and volunteers ensure every adoptable pet brought to our Centre finds a home. The SPHS is a registered charity and receives no government funding for its programs and services.
Come on out and join the Stratford-Perth Humane Society and the staff & board of the Stratford & District Chamber of Commerce for some snacks, prizes, and lively networking!
