Jason Heigl was only 15 years old when he died from complications resulting from a tragic car accident. Nancy and Katherine Heigl started the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation as his legacy, keeping alive his spirit of compassion and kindness for all animals in need.
“The goal of JDHF is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance.” Through their Compassion Revolution initiative, they really hope and are dedicated to assist any stray animal in the greater Los Angeles area using an extensive no-kill model. Through funding spay/neuter programs, training and education of pet owners, and other support of crowded and underfunded shelters, they are able to reduce the number of euthanized animals.
