Amanda Ward

Amanda joined Millbrook in June 2008 after finishing university. She achieved a BSC in Animal behaviour and Animal Welfare from Anglia Ruskin University.

Originally she was in charge of the re-homing kennel blocks 1 and 2 before going on maternity leave and when she came back she changed her role to be an all rounder member of staff - this means she works in all areas such as the Horses, Cattery, Small animal House, Kennels and Reception.

She is very interested in people so enjoys dealing with all members of the public and loves being able to help them with her knowledge. Her favourite bit is when you see the animals come back and visit and you can see how they have settled and progressed especially if it's been a difficult situation for them prior to coming into the RSPCA.

She has horses, dogs, cats and ferrets of her own and her brother has a sheep farm so one of her favourite past times is helping him deliver baby lambs!

Away from Millbrok she is very passionate about riding for the disabled and to help them she often competes in sponsored events such as tough mudder, the wolf run and sponsored horse rides.

So most of her spare time is still spent with animals either riding her own horse, doing her charity work or spending time with her son and family and all of their animals.
