From a very early age, @Jose Ocano learned to care for animals thanks to his mom who instilled a love of living things and helping people. Growing up in Barrio Anita gave Jose the grit, tenacity and life skills he would later need to work in some of the most challenging ecosystems. But just like the people from his community, José's resilience and heart carry him forward. Nothing shows that more than his success as Senior Director of People and Culture with Best Friends Animal Society.
During National Hispanic Heritage Month, join us for a conversation with José and Maddie's Fund Executive Leadership Team member @Mary Ippoliti-Smith. Afterwards, continue the conversation with José right here on Maddie's Pet Forum.

José Ocaño, Senior Director of People and Culture, Best Friends Animal Society
It's truly inspiring to see the intersection of passion for animals and the celebration of Hispanic Heritage in the context of José Ocano's journey. His story is a testament to the power of early influences and community support in shaping one's path. The fact that he's now a Senior Director of People and Culture with Best Friends Animal Society highlights not only his personal growth but also the recognition of his dedication and commitment to animal welfare. This is a wonderful way to honor National Hispanic Heritage Month, by acknowledging the contributions of individuals like José who make a significant impact in the animal welfare field. I'm looking forward to watching the recording and learning more about his journey and insights.
