Maddie's Candid Conversation with José Ocaño

Recorded On: 09/27/2022

Back to Training Site

From a very early age, José Ocaño 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 José 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.

As America celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, join us for a conversation with José and Maddie's Fund Executive Leadership Team member Mary Ippoliti-Smith.

This webinar has been pre-approved for .5 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement and by the National Animal Care & Control Association.
