Meet VBSPCA Board Member Amanda Wells

Amanda Wells is passionate about helping others. Whether it’s people or animals, she is energized by making things better for those around her. Wells does both by serving on the Virginia Beach SPCA’s Board of Directors.

Wells first got involved with the VBSPCA as a volunteer. “Volunteering at the VBSPCA is very rewarding,” she said. “Volunteering allows you to get to know the animals and help get them adopted.”

Now as a board member, Wells also shares her expertise in human resources to help the VBSPCA’s team. She is currently the Norfolk Botanical Garden’s Director of Human Resources. In addition to her extensive human resources background, Wells has 18 years of experience working with nonprofit organizations. She is extremely connected to the VBSPCA’s adoption services.

“I appreciate that the VBSPCA is such a resource to the community, from the clinic, animal adoption, the Pet Pantry, and more,” explained Wells. “When a person adopts a pet, they are saving a life.”

While Wells is quick to encourage others to volunteer at the VBSPCA, she also recommends attending its events. “They are fun and you meet other people who love animals,” said Wells.

We are happy to welcome Wells to the VBSPCA Board of Directors. It takes involvement from caring people in our community to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals!
