In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Amanda Giese.
Early life and first rescue:
Amanda Giese was born on the 26th of January, 1983. Born and raised in Washington, Amanda has always been fond of animals. As a young kid, Amanda had an abusive upbringing and saw animals as a way to find solace.
Amanda accomplished her first rescue mission when she was just 10-years of age. She rescued a neglected kitten, which according to her was just the size of a lemon. Over the months, Amanda nursed the injured kitten back to health and took her regularly to the vet. Amanda revealed that her greatest lesson from the rescue was that she needed to put in the time to care for animals.
After graduating from a local high school, Amanda decided to enroll at University. Mid-way through her studies, Amanda decided to drop out of the university and started working as a vet technician. Even though Amanda never left her job as a vet technician, she became increasingly interested in animal rescue. True to her goals, Amanda established the PandPaws organization and started working for the rescue of animals.
Following her excellent work, Animal planet reached out to Amanda to discuss a potential TV show. Amanda agreed to the concept and “Amanda To The Rescue” started airing from the 28th of October 2018. Not a fan of killing animals, Amanda prefers to nurse the animal back to health even in case of animals with very small chances of survival. When asked about how reality TV changed the way Amanda did things, she revealed,
“There is no difference between my rescue on the show and my rescue personally. We do everything that we do normally, just that now we have cameras following us around. We didn’t change anything for the TV show; we kept everything running how it runs at the rescue. The difference is that people can see the other side of a rescue — what really goes into running a rescue and how to take care of animals.”
During her time as an animal rescuer, Amanda has helped over more than 400 animals to make sure they find the home they deserve. Even though her show is primarily targeted towards the rescue of dogs, Amanda loves all animals equally and never turns her back to an animal in distress.
Amanda Giese has had her share of affairs and heartbreak. While she does not talk about her marriage and divorce, she and her ex-husband had two children Jade (16-years-old) and son Beast (18-year-old). Later Amanda moved on with a former basketball player Gary Walters. Gary helped her with rescue operations and was involved in the show. Even though at times the relationship looked promising Amanda and Walters broke up. Amanda is currently engaged to her boyfriend Jeffree Roy.
