Minoo Rahbar’s Bio
Minoo Rhabar was born on the 8th of August. Her birth year and place are, however, not available. She reportedly had a very difficult childhood. She migrated from a war-ridden country to the United States at the very young age of ten and subsequently attended the US Grant School in Van Nuys, Los Angeles.
Her horrible childhood experiences could be the reason she scarcely talks about her background, making information on her family very difficult to lay hands on. Although her original nationality is not known, Rhabar could now be taken for an American having spent over five decades of her life in the States as well as married an American citizen. She is fluent in Spanish but appears to be of Middle-Eastern descent.
Owing to her early life experiences, Rhabar dedicated her life to kittens and cats rescue, later receiving Kitten Rescue’s Advocacy Award at her 4th Annual Furball held in 2011 at West Hollywood’s House of Blues in Los Angeles. She has also received other recognition for her immense contributions to the charitable cause.

Minoo finally married Jackson on the 29th of June, 2014. The wedding was a private affair which remarkably came off at Best Friends Animal Society’s “no-kill pet sanctuary” in Kanab, Utah in the United States. More remarkably, the ringbearer for the marriage solemnization was the couple’s pet dog, Mooshka. That’s what you get when two die-hard animal lovers are becoming one!
Rhabar has since been living happily with her husband with no rumors of controversies or marital issues. The couple collaboratively engages actively in numerous activities that cater to animals. Together they run the Jackson Galaxy Project which raises awareness for animal rescue and adoption.
