The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation is thrilled to announce the award of five new grants to Southern California rescue groups. The goal of these 2015 grants is to assist local rescues with their operation costs related to pulling rescue dogs from SoCal animal shelters. While our grantees are diverse, their goal is shared: to help homeless dogs and cats find forever homes.
Grants were provided to Coastal German Shepherd Rescue, Much Love Animal Rescue, the Brittany Foundation, Wags and Walks and Boxer Rescue Los Angeles.
Throughout 2015, we will be highlighting some of the successes of the grants and the animals we are able to save together.
About Our Partners
Coastal German Shepherd Rescue
Coastal German Shepherd Rescue, based in Orange County, was established in 2005 and in that time has helped hundreds of German Shepherds. Sadly, this breed is the third most likely to be killed in our shelters so Coastal is constantly asked to step in and help this beautiful breed.
Much Love Animal Rescue
Much Love Animal Rescue is an all-breed rescue who has been serving the greater Los Angeles area for nearly 16 years. They have a stellar reputation in the animal welfare field and their high profile adopters and volunteers have enable them to find homes for thousands of dogs.
The Brittany Foundation Animal Sanctuary
The Brittany Foundation Animal Sanctuary is the most seasoned of our grantees, and focuses on senior dogs who are special needs. Their particular interest is with hospice dogs who are difficult to place. Since 1994 the Brittany Foundation has been making a difference in SoCal.
Wags and Walks
Wags and Walks is a quickly growing organization that was founded in 2011 but just in 2014 alone placed 360 dogs into loving homes. They are an all-breed rescue and recently have received attention for assisting the first Los Angeles dog café, Uber, and Animal Planet in special programs designed to bringing adoptable dogs to the public.
Boxer Rescue Los Angeles
Boxer Rescue Los Angeles finds homes for an amazing 350-400 boxers and boxer mixes a year! They are proof that shelters are not just for mix-breed dogs, as all of their animals come from local animal shelters. Boxer Rescue has been a longtime partner of the JDHF and we are happy to be able to help them save more lives.
