By Staff | Jun 25, 2019

The Cape Coral Animal Shelter Board of Directors has appointed Liz McCauley as the shelter’s executive director.

McCauley, a native of Pennsylvania, comes to CCAS with more than 30 years of experience and a master’s degree in business with a concentration in non-profit, leadership and management, a release announcing the appointment states.

“McCauley has had a lifelong love of animals and formerly was the executive director of one of the largest open admission animal shelters in Eastern Pennsylvania,” the statement released Tuesday states. “While there she led the organization in expanding the foster program, developing relationships with other rescues and implemented new programs and procedures. For the last 12 years she has been fighting to strengthen the animal cruelty laws nationwide through tougher legislation and educating people about animal neglect and abuse.”

“After moving to Southwest Florida in 2017 McCauley worked as shelter manager for the Gulf Coast Humane Society. Her goal has been to ease the burden placed on animal control facilities throughout Southwest Florida by tirelessly working to save unwanted, abandoned and abused animals.”

“We are excited to have Liz join us on our mission to help Cape Coral residents and the animals in need by becoming the executive director of the organization. Her experience in the non-profit environment, management skills and love of animals will be an asset to CCAS. We welcome her help and knowledge as we get closer to opening the shelter,” said JoAnn Elardo, CCAS Board president, in the statement.
