Chief Veterinarian, Dr. Amanda Williams
Dr. Amanda Williams graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2005 and moved to Florida after graduation to be closer to her immediate family. Originally from Illinois, she has also lived in New Jersey and North Carolina, where she completed her Undergraduate degree in Animal Science with a minor in Genetics at North Carolina State University.
She spent close to 15 years at Kindness Animal Hospital performing routine surgery and practicing general medicine before joining the Furry Friends family. She is excited to be able to bring her knowledge and skill set to the clinic and is excited for the opportunity to also work with all of the rescue animals!
Dr. Amanda is married with a house full of fur children including two dogs, two cats, and a rabbit. All but one of these fur children are rescues and she knows how important it is to give these animals a loving home. She enjoys swimming, trips to the park with her dogs, and spending time at the beach.
Dr. Amanda has wanted to be a veterinarian since she told her parents at 3 years of age that she was going to be a vet and is very excited to be able to continue her career and contribute in every way possible to Furry Friends.

Before joining our team, Dr. Billmaier practiced in Northern Virginia and the metro Atlanta area and has also been a provider of in home euthanasia and hospice services. It wasn’t until the past three years when she found her calling in rescue and shelter medicine. Her passion is being able to bring her years of experience in practice to help animals and clients in need who may not have received care otherwise. Combined with her love for shelter medicine and the beach, she found her forever home as our Furry Friends shelter veterinarian. We look forward to the many years she will bring us in helping treat and save our rescued cats’ and dogs’ lives.
