Kimberly Ovitz Puts ASPCA Dog Rescue First

Fashion designer Kimberly Ovitz, daughter of Michael Ovitz, was featured in this recent Los Angeles Confidential article, "Kimberly Ovitz Puts ASPCA Dog Rescue First", about her role in bringing attention to the plight of animals, particularly the ASPCA: 
“The more I learned, the more I realized how unaware people are,” she says. “I wanted to make a difference.” 
To that end, Ovitz decided take action and put her talents to good use: She made shirts for The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), donated a $3,000 clothing package to be auctioned off at one of the organization’s events and gave a portion of the proceeds from her sample sales to the group. She could have stopped there, but this daughter of a media mogul wanted to do more.
“I wanted to be hands-on and not just write a check,” she says. “It makes me happy to be able to get a dog out of his cage for a walk. It’s so fulfilling.” For the past six months, Ovitz has volunteered for Animal Haven (a NY-area nonprofit that finds homes for abandoned cats and dogs) and is now taking the extra step of hosting a 150-person invitation-only event October 19 at her father’s LA home to benefit the ASPCA."
