Holly Sizemore, chief national program officer

Holly Sizemore entered the animal welfare world in 1991 while in college. She discovered a population of feral cats eating from a restaurant dumpster, so she and a concerned restaurant patron began the task of what they later (much later) learned was trap-neuter-return (TNR). Together they formed CAWS, a Utah nonprofit group focusing on adoptions, TNR, and low-income spay/neuter. 

In 2000, Holly joined No More Homeless Pets in Utah and served the organization as partner development director, Feral Fix director, community development director, and ultimately as executive director. Holly has volunteered and worked in many different animal welfare arenas ranging from very small grassroots to large-scale public/private partnership efforts. She now leads the outreach efforts of Best Friends.
