Finalist in Animal

About Tito the Raccoon

Tito isn’t your average household pet. This two-year-old, tamed raccoon lives with his pet-dad, Mitchell in South Carolina and a slew of other animal friends. While Mitchell was working in pest control, he found Tito in an attic. The homeowner was uninterested in Tito as a pet, so Mitchell acted fast and adopted his soon-to-be friend. Over the past year, Tito has become something of an ambassador for raccoon-kind on YouTube, where he boasts an audience of more than 430K subscribers. In addition to the adventures found on YouTube, Tito also enjoys nearly 100K more Instagram followers, who tune in for quicker peeks into his exciting life.
