Liz FinchLiz started her career in animal welfare in 1997 by volunteering for several small nonprofits and Los Angeles Animal Services. In 2000, she co-founded a cat rescue organization and began devoting herself more seriously to animal welfare. By 2005, she made the decision to give up her writing career and moved to Kanab, Utah, to work for Best Friends Animal Society.

She started her career at Best Friends answering questions from the public on all aspects of animal care and welfare, transitioned into the manager role of that department and now serves as senior manager for national programs. She oversees the community cat programs and the No More Homeless Pets Network, which comprises more than 1,500 rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations and municipal shelters. The network provides support and resources in the form of grants, consulting, marketing materials and other opportunities to help Save Them All.

Liz recently relocated to Phoenix, Arizona, where she lives with a pair of mischievous rabbits and seven cats who frequently interrupt her workday by taking over the desk or wreaking havoc in some other part of the house.
