What drives an eight year old (now 11 year old) to open her own little business? A passion for animals and a love of fashion!
Isabella Masso handmakes flower bows, bow ties, tutus and now tuxedos for pets. Inspired to make a difference one bow at a time, she donates a portion of her sales to rescue organizations and shelters.
It all began when Isabella told her mom she wanted to start a business to help animals and make them look "fashionable and fabulous." As word spread about her adorable bows and generosity, invitations to exhibit her wares came from various pet festivals throughout Georgia.
In addition to her contributions, Isabella donates bows to rescue organizations to create more "charm and cuteness" in the hopes that their animals will find "furever homes."
As her business gained momentum and popularity, Isabella fell unexpectedly ill and had emergency surgery. Her kindness came full circle when she received get well pet pictures from all over the world on Facebook. Additionally, Canine Assistants provided Isabella with a service dog that visited her almost every day.
Upon receiving a clean bill of health, Isabella decided to get back to work. Her unwavering commitment to her cause has inspired others to share her story. Her bows have been showcased on TV and she was interviewed by Fox 5 Atlanta's very own Ron Gant. She was even on the Bert Show.
There's no denying that Isabella is indeed a young woman on a heartfelt mission!
Isabella's dedication and passion for animals has become an inspiration to others. Her longtime dream of opening her very own pet shop and cage-free rescue could be just around the corner. Won't you help make her dream come true?
