Cat’s Pride Generosity Helps Heigl Foundation Support California City Shelter

Cat's Pride Generosity Helps Heigl Foundation Support California City Shelter

In California City, a remote rural town about two hours north of Los Angeles, there is a small animal shelter that operates on extremely limited resources. With a very tight budget, staff work hard to look after the animals in their care. Like many community oriented shelters, the facility is heavily reliant on the tireless efforts of volunteers. We decided to help them out and our partners at Cat’s Pride delivered in a big way!

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.
