Ashley Mauceri

Ashley Mauceri is the deputy campaign manager for animal cruelty issues at HSUS.

In December 2009, she wrote an article for HSUS about her first raid in which she compared chickens illegally being used in cockfighting rings to those raised for food on large-scale farms: "The sad realization struck me that this was the life these birds faced every single day. This thought led me in turn to consider the thousands of pit bulls tethered and shivering outside at that very moment, as well as the millions of battery cage hens pinned on top of one another in factory farms, spending their whole lives waiting miserably to die."

Mauceri graduated from Mount Saint Mary University in 2007.
