Eliza is the Administrative Assistant with American Pets Alive!/HASS. After a lifetime of animal advocacy in her personal endeavors, she has spent the past two years with Austin Pets Alive! as the Dog Foster Placement Assistant Lead where her focus was bringing at risk dogs across the state of Texas to safety and connecting them with foster homes. During this time she was able to expand her knowledge of medical care and behavioral management for dogs, building partnerships with other shelters, and what it takes to face the challenges that come with a career in animal care and lifesaving. Through the AmPA!/HASS teams she will continue to lead her work with compassion and bring positive change to the world of animal welfare.
