Meet Ashley – Our Animal Care Manager

During your next visit to your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS), take a moment to introduce yourself to Ashley Llapitan, our newly-promoted Animal Care Manager.

Ashley is a native of Buckley, Washington. She’s has been a member of the RCHS team for 2-1/2 years.

This isn’t her first go around when it comes to animals. Ashley began by training Australian Shepherds. Aussies are a working breed with plenty of energy and drive. These are dogs who need jobs to use up their energy and keep them occupied. Ashley welcomed the challenges and gained a strong footing in her career working with animals.

When we asked Ashley if she had always worked with dogs and cats, we learned that her animal experience also includes Tigers, Lions, and Wolves.

Her husband, Cody, is serving in the United States Navy. They share their home with two cats, a Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix named Duke, a Pit Bull named Nora, and Rocky, a puppy who Ashley fell in love with and adopted from RCHS. (That happens here sometimes with our staff and volunteers.)

We asked Ashley about her goals as Animal Care Manager. She replied, “This is my goal. This is what I want to do.”

What could be better than that?
