Interview withAmanda Lane Sherrod (@manda_sherrod)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

We rescue animals from all over the country & pour our hearts into animal rescue.

Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?

We go above & beyond for every animal we help. We’ve been featured on The Dodo & so many other platforms who share our animal rescue stories! We hAve millions of TikTok followers who support our efforts & have even done collaborations with the NFL!

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Compassion fatigue is real. Go slow, do what you can, & lead with your heart!

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Our rescue community has always backed us & supported everything we do to save these animals. Without their love & support, we wouldn’t be able to continue to rescue!

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

We founded a nonprofit so we can continue to fight the animal crisis in the United States & save animals from neglect, abused, & all the situations.

Do you have a favorite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

You can’t buy love but you can rescue it. Our entire life revolves being a voice for
The voiceless & advocating for these animals. We’ve taken in some of the worst cases of abuse & neglect. After rehabbing these animals who were facing death, we’ve shown how remarkable a glow up can be & how deserving all these animals are.

How can our readers follow you on social media?
