Update: Walter

Many of you have been sending messages and posting on our social media sites requesting updates on Walter, whose sad story we shared yesterday.

The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation would like to thank everyone who sent in generous donations to help with Walter’s medical treatment and for the wonderful words of support that we have received over the last 36 hours.

It is with a heavy heart that we have to report that Walter has passed over the rainbow bridge.

A Plea For Walter

Walter is a very special dog.

Water once lived in a household with several canine siblings. One day, Walter was attacked by his brother. Walter was so badly injured, he could barely walk. A neighbor spotted the injured Walter and alerted animal control.

A Plea For Walter

Animal control arrived and ordered Walter’s owner, who we’ll call Jerry, to bring Walter to the vet immediately. Jerry assured animal control that he would… but he didn’t.

SEAACA Update: Pursuing Justice

We continue to pursue justice on behalf of the male pit bull that died while in SEAACA’s (SouthEast Area Animal Control Authority in Downey, CA) care.


Subsequent to our letter and web site post on 10/29/15, we were able to rescue two of the German Shepherds that were also a part of the household where the abused dogs were living. They have since gone to one of our wonderful grantees, Coastal German Shepherd Rescue for placement.

AnaBelle & A Perfect Partnership

When Ashley and Kyle were married earlier this month, in lieu of a traditional wedding favor to their guests, the couple decided to make a donation to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation to honor a very special four-legged friend.

AnaBelle (BlueBelle)

The couple’s beloved dog AnaBelle aka Bluebelle was a former Heigl Hound and in an email from her adoptive mom updating us on how our rescue pup was getting on, she very generously announced a gift of $1,000.00 from their recent nuptials!
