Speaking about Mamma Mia’s rescue, Shannon Keith, an animal rights lawyer who runs the Beagle Freedom Project, told the LA Times: “The Duchess called me personally.
Meghan and Harry recently rescued Mamma Mia
“She calls on my cell with no Caller ID and says, ‘Hey Shannon, this is Meghan.'” Shannon shared that they spoke for 30 minutes and she at first thought she was talking to the actress Megan Fox.
Mia arrived at the shelter with eight of her newborn puppies, and Meghan and Harry both visited her after hours where they played with the dogs before making their decision.
Meghan reportedly told Shannon that they prefer to help older rescue dogs.
The Duchess loves animals
Animal-lover Meghan has adopted a number of rescue dogs over the past few years and brought Guy to the UK when she married Harry.
The former actress also chose animal welfare charity Mayhew as one of her first patronages.
Shortly after their engagement, Harry sweetly shared a story about how the Queen’s dogs fell in love with Meghan as soon as they met her.
