Dino, Office Manager
Dino joined Kitty Cottage in May of 2018 and quickly earned his way to the top manager position over the past few years. He has been an incredible addition to the team despite having zero rescue experience. Dino works hard to keep staff and volunteers on track, and ensures each person is doing their job correctly. He greets everyone with a smile, and wishes each adopted cat luck as they leave here and venture on to their new journey. He maintains his spot here at the cottage by keeping his soiling habits undesirable. KCAC loves him here and couldn't imagine life without him, they truly would be lost without his input and guidance.
