Carrie Brashear - Kennel Manager
Carrie is from Gans, PA and has been involved with CLAH since age 11!
She worked as a nurse for a few years, but realized she couldn’t stay away from the animals, and decided to follow in her mom Sherry’s footsteps and manage the boarding kennel.
She has two “fur kids” at home, a big cat named Hank and a pitbull-mix named Harlie. Both of Carrie’s pets have special needs, so she tends to have a soft spot for boarding pets that require special care.
In her free time, Carrie loves spending time with her family, doing anything outdoors whether it’s working in her yard or taking her dog hiking. She also enjoys volunteering for rescue transports for dogs in need.
Carrie truly loves her job and is her happiest when she’s caring for animals!
