LFF Co-founder and producer Ruby Mechant is passionate about many things, but rescue animals in particular. Here are some of her “babies” and how they came to be part of her sparkly universe.
In her own words:
My family became pit bull aficionados by mistake. We really didn’t know we were picking up at the shelter Cleo, our very first pit. She lived a very long and happy life chasing cats and squirrels in Lake Como.
Asia was a rescue too. Her previous family left her at the shelter at the age of two because they were having a baby and they said she was “too much to handle.” Well, if you don’t know how to train a dog even the tiniest chihuahua can become too much.
As to the cat side, here in NYC you can say that Bailey aka ‘Queen B’ (not because of Beyonce, but because the little snitch knows she is beautiful), will take possession of my apartment and begin her residency on Feb 14th. She was abandoned by her previous family because they moved to a building that does not allow pets – so sure just get rid of your cat. Because of that she is a tad temperamental and she has to be the only cat in the house. It’s gonna be a slow journey with her but it’s not the first time that the rescue I volunteer has given me divas. I’m sure she will get used to feather boas and sparkly costumes soon!
