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.
