Help Tuxedo!

Here at the Heigl Foundation we cannot do what we do alone – we have some great donors, volunteers and fosters who make it all possible. One gal who has been with us for many years as a fundraiser (she’s run races and raised money for the Foundation) is April. She has been a longtime supporter and always championed the cause of animal welfare and making a difference.

Recently April’s dog became ill and she was faced with letting him suffer or paying $6400 for an operation. At the beginning of August, she opted for the latter and has been looking for ways to pay that vet bill. She’s had garage sales and reached out to friends, family and colleagues who know how much her dog means to her.

A Marvelous Mutt Fundraiser!

We want to take a moment to thank Mary Williamson and Holly for a fantastic event on August 6th at BarkBox HQ in New York! They hosted a fundraiser to benefit the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation and had some really cool ‘furiends’ join the party!

Marvelous Mutt Mixer Fundraiser

Mary and Holly are known for dressing (very chic-ly) alike — mom and dog in matching outfits! Nancy and Katherine Heigl ran into them in New York a few months ago and they took the initiative to help the Foundation in our efforts to save more homeless pets.
