Update: Walter

Let Your Voice Be Heard Against Animal Cruelty

Animal Cruelty

The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was outraged by an article published by the Los Angeles Times on December 14, that revealed a horrific account of animal cruelty within a city animal shelter. The cruel practices were perpetrated by a Register Veterinary Technician (RVT) in the employment of LA Animal Services. We feel strongly that all concerned citizens should raise their voices so that no additional companion animals suffer the same intolerable treatment.
