Our Inspiration

Kate Coffin is the founder and creative force behind Otis & Roo. Her love of horses and nature was the spark that lead to a of passion for animals. Years later, she decided to follow a life long dream working with animals. 

This search lead her to the SPCA and training as a veterinarian nurse where she saw everyday the needs of abused, abandoned, and sick animals. At the same time she found her first  dog Lucy: a failed Seeing Eye dog that came with a serious heart condition. And then Roo and Marcus came into her life; sick little kittens she nursed back to health and stole her heart.    

After she left the SPCA these 3 unique and amazing sweethearts became the inspiration for Otis & Roo.  Her love of these animals and a desire to create beautiful and unique products is what has become Otis & Roo.
