The support of the general public and the generosity of the business community is vital in ensuring that the
Jason Heigl Foundation can continue to help thousands of companion animals every year. The JDHF was delighted and hugely grateful to receive a wonderful
donation from our friend Lori Hill at Komfy K9’s recently.
Chance Is A Very Content Pup Chilling Out On His Komfy K9 Bed
Lori creates beds specifically for kennels, rescue groups, and vets, and very kindly supplied the JDHF with 25 beds,
45 large pocket covers (for heats pads or cool packs), 15 quilted plush covers and 15 Komfy K9 blankets for our Heigl Hound rescues! In total, this wonderful
donation from Komfy K9’s is worth around $5,000. (more…)

to pull the dog and hold out hope that it will work itself out.

bull mix, weighed only 33 pounds and was suffering from a chronic illness called masticatory muscle myositis which prevented her jaw
