Claire Milne
I founded K9 Animal Ambulance after 11 years working for the RSPCA, where I received commendations for my achievements in animal rescue. I noticed there was no service around that provided 24/7 emergency transport for animals and made it my mission to bring that to our region.

Since I set out back in 2011 me and my team have helped hundreds of pets in their time of need. It is our expert knowledge that has allowed us to safely and securely transport animals to the vets and even save lives in times of crisis. This is why our vans are always pet first aid kits, pet stretches, oxygen and all the other things you would expect for an ambulance service. We all feel that our pets are not just animals but our family and so treat them with the same care we would a human.

I am also a Pet First Aid tutor where I teach people the importance of understanding their pets and the necessary steps to take in an emergency. I teach how to act in the possible life or death situations before or during transports to the vets.

I hold a valid SIA licence (Security Industry Authority) to which i have had to undergo the appropriate training and pass the relevant exams which allows me to work in this industry, at the front line.
