The Heigl Foundation will launch the "Learn To Be A Best Friend" program on Saturday, May 5, an initiative that will provide free dog obedience training at Hollydale Park in South Gate, Los Angeles. Members of the public who would like their pet to participate in the program simply need to call 323-798-4101 to register. The goal of the program, which is run in conjunction with the Downey Shelter, is to teach responsible pet ownership and basic commands.

Free spay/neuter surgeries will also be provided for any unaltered dog attending the class through a local participating vet clinic. Staff will contact the dog owner by phone to arrange an appointment at a convenient date and time.
