    Meet our team caring for animals and our community every day.

    Mayhew has a great team of around 80 staff and students who are all extremely passionate about their jobs and dedicated to the welfare of the animals we care for.

    We couldn’t operate without them and the fantastic volunteers who give their time to Mayhew. Here are just some of the people who make a difference to the lives of our animals:
