Fellow New York socialite and friend of Bloomberg, Amanda Hearst, was also on hand for the daring rescue. In addition to being a saver of puppies, Hearst, the great-granddaughter of publishing giant William Randolph Hearst, was recently ranked as the number 7 "Hottest Billionaire Heiress" by Forbes. Hearst is known to have a $136,000 a year "maintenance cost," which helps the 28-year old keep up with her wardrobe, vacations, and beauty.
The Humane Society's press release gave a shout out to both Georgina and Hearst:
Animal Advocates Amanda Hearst and Georgina Bloomberg were on-site at the rescue. Hearst and Bloomberg are members of Friends of Finn, which is a committee of next generation activists committed to educating the public about puppy mills.
Humane Society director in North Carolina Kim Albourn detailed the undertaking, "This is the seventh puppy mill rescue that The Humane Society of the United States has assisted with in North Carolina in the past 10 months. This cruel industry will persist in our state until our state lawmakers pass much-needed legislation regulating large-scale commercial breeders."
In 2010, Georgina suffered a concussion and fractured spine after falling from her mount at an equestrian tournament.
