A Prince with a passion for compassion toward our four-legged friends, Lorenzo Borghese– former star of the ABC series The Bachelor and the creator of the Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa line of all-natural bath and body pet products– is now helping to create the possibility of a happily ever after for puppy mill dogs.
