Rebecca

Rebecca

Managing Director

Rebecca has always been passionate about helping other people in both her work and personal life and in particular when it comes to animals, as a dog lover she feels very strongly about dogs being a member of the family and not just a pet. Rebecca finds it so rewarding to help reunite dogs with their owners, after seeing the fantastic work Phil does with the thermal drone she can’t wait to fly solo and inspire more women to become involved in this wonderful charity.

Rebecca is committed to support Drone To Home and looks forward to reuniting more animals as the charity grows.

 

Laura

Laura

Regional Director

My name is Laura, I am the Operations Manager for Drone To Home.

Career-wise I have always worked in a role supporting families, so once I heard about DTH I knew that I wanted to become part of what they do.

I love all animals and I’m known for taking in all kinds of waifs and strays,
I have a chihuahua called Bear and a sphynx cat called Wilfred, I also have 2 rabbits and 2 tortoises.

I love being part of DTH and the great work that they do, I get such a great feeling seeing a dog reunited with its family.

Michelle

Michelle

Hi I’m Michelle. I recently retired from the NHS after 21 years in a non clinical role. I have always been motivated by helping and supporting people. I have always had animals in my life, from being a small child “rescuing” nests of baby birds I found. We currently have a mad Sprocker Spaniel princess who is a bit of an escape artist, so I jumped at the chance to volunteer for this amazing charity and help support the owners at such a traumatic time. Ours has never been gone for long or very far but I understand that gut wrenching feeling when a very much loved family pet is missing. I have learnt so much from the team, and look forward to helping more dogs get home where they belong. 

Sammy

Sammy

My name is Sammy and I am the fundraising coordinator for Drone to home, based in Rutland.

I volunteer for Drone To Home because I have benefitted first hand from the amazing work the charity does. I am a big dog lover and recognise how important the work is, and the level of support and success it offers people at a time they need it the most. I support the charity, so that that charity can continue to reunite dogs with their owners!

Martin is a local business man who has enjoyed many years of working home and abroad. It was a dream come true when Travis, a handsome black Labrador puppy joined the family in 2019.

From day one Martin has been working with Travis, playing sniff and find games and they now make an excellent team.

If you see them out and about please stop them and say hello …Travis loves a fuss!

Both Martin and Travis are excited and proud to be able to put their skills to good use in supporting the valuable work of Drone to Home.
