Amelia (Amy) Michaud has been our Shelter Manager since November 2012, and was employed at the shelter for three years prior to that. While she originally hails from southern New England, Amy has been residing in VT for over 15 years. With a long time interest in working with animals, she gained experience in animal care and behavior by working for several years as a veterinarian assistant and a kennel/ grooming assistant. In addition to college courses completed in Connecticut, Amy successfully completed course requirements of Animal Behavior College and holds a certification in dog training. Amy feels that her work at PMFAS is right for her as she enjoys working with both animals and people. It’s interesting and fascinating to help match up the right animal with the right human. She sums it up this way, “Working at the shelter brings both animal and people relations together!”
With a strong dedication to animal welfare, a sense of commitment, knowledge of animal care, and most importantly lots of love for the animals as well as a smile on her face and a great sense of humor, Amy does a great job heading up the team at the shelter, both staff and volunteers. It’s clear that the health and welfare of all the dogs and cats at PMFAS are a top priority. Thank you, Amy, and thanks to other staff and all volunteers for all you do!
