Meet the Global Strays Staff
Liz is the President and Co-Founder of Global Strays. After witnessing the suffering and overpopulation crisis of stray animals while traveling in Central America, she was inspired to start Global Strays. In her twenties, she began fostering and finding homes for pitbulls who were scheduled to be euthanized. Prior to Global Strays, she was a freelance photojournalist for Reuters and The Wall Street Journal. She has a fascination with log cabins, rivers in The Texas Hill Country and has a particular knack for alternative medicine.

Elisa Quiroz first felt the rush of rescuing animals when she saved a baby kitten unable to walk. In 2014, Elisa started the ADAN Foundation, which rescues and rehabilitates dogs, cats, and horses. Once the animals are rehabilitated, they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and put up for adoption. With the aid of Global Strays, the ADAN Foundation has had an impact on government policy through the reform of Law 747, which protects the welfare of domestic animals in Nicaragua. Elisa is a Project Coordinator for the Global Strays Spay and Neuter & Veterinarian Care Program, and she inspects and oversees several of our affiliated shelters.
