Big Celebrity Support For Small Dogs: Chichella Festival

Big Celebrity Support For Small Dogs: Chichella Festival

The Helen Woodward Animal Center has some very big support behind a very tiny cause. Tiny and furry, that is. JDHF co-founder, actress Katherine Heigl, a small rescue dog lover and owner, is lending her support to the Center’s latest campaign to bring attention to small dogs looking for forever homes. With Chihuahua-blends flooding shelters across the U.S., it is hoped that her large voice will bring some gigantic attention to the bittiest breeds.

Walter managed to escape death once before after he was attacked by another dog. His owner neglected him and refused to treat his wounds which became infected, almost killing him. Rescued by the JDHF he now faces another battle for his life after contracting pneumonia at his adoption/training facility in Colorado. We need your support to help us save this very special dog!

Answers Needed In Sudden Death Of Shelter Dog

Answers Needed In Sudden Death Of Shelter Dog

The Foundation was recently made aware, along with millions of other concerned Americans, of a case of cruelty and neglect involving a resident of Pico Rivera and nine dogs – including an emaciated mother and her pups whose photo went viral on social media. The Heigl Foundation is seeking answers from the SouthEast Area Animal Control Authority in Downey over the sudden and unexpected death of one of the dogs, who a few days earlier had been given a clean bill of health after recovering well from his ordeal.
