We’d like to extend a very warm welcome to our newest franchise owner; Sam Richards who is responsible for the Newport area. We hope she enjoys working for Friends for Pets and we are so pleased she chose to become one of our team!

Samantha has a very keen interest in animals and their welfare. She grew up surrounded by a variety of pets and subsequently worked at Cefn Mably Farm Park, where she cared for and supervised a wide range of agricultural animals. She has completed a Dog Grooming OCN, a small holding course as well as a Diploma in Animal Care and Psychology which makes Samantha an knowledgeable, experienced manager with an awful lot of expertise in the animal care industry. Samantha lives in Newport with her husband, two children and two dogs – a yellow labrador and a black bulldog.
