Lindsay Pollard-Post

Lindsay has been writing about animals since she could hold a pencil. She started with comic books—all starring her cat. By middle school, she was writing anti-vivisection essays. As a senior writer and editor for the PETA Foundation, her pieces promoting animal rights have appeared everywhere from The New York Times to high in the sky (on airplane banners). Lindsay finds endless inspiration in the outdoors—on a trail, in a kayak, or on cross-country skis—and in her adopted feline companions, Mia and Sundae.
