Vanilla – A Very Painful Loss


It’s been a tough week for us here at the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Heigl Hound of Hope Vanilla. Rescuing animals is not easy. If love were all it takes to heal a dog, you can bet none of our rescues would ever die. Vanilla was a very special dog and she will be greatly missed.

Update: Vanilla Needs Surgery To Stop Tumors Spreading

Update: Vanilla Needs Surgery To Stop Tumors Spreading

Vanilla was rescued from a high-skill shelter in desperate need of medical care. Emaciated from a chronic illness which prevented her jaw from opening and with tumors on her abdomen, she was clinging to life. 7 weeks later she has gained 10lbs, but for all the progress made, unfortunately her tumors have gotten worse and require surgery. However, Vanilla is a dog simply not willing to give up!

Sochi & Adler: Quarantine Regulations

Sochi & Adler: Quarantine Rules & Regulations

We have had a number of questions about Sochi and Adler, our Russian rescue dogs, who are looking for temporary fosters for the duration of their quarantine period. There are a number of rules and regulations governing their care, so we thought it best to let potential fosters know the sort of environment that is required for the two adorable pups. Please get in touch if you think you can help!

Fostering A Heigl Hound

Foster A Heigl Hound

We are looking for volunteers in the Los Angeles area to foster some of our amazing Heigl Hounds while we search for homes for them. Fostering involves opening your home to an animal in need on a temporary basis, to provide food, water, shelter and most importantly personal care and attention. Dogs thrive and are healthier in a loving environment. Interested? Check out the details after the jump.
