The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation partners with and provides grants to select nonprofit organizations across the United States whose guiding principles are aligned with our fundamental goals. We strive to work with dynamic and proactive groups who can deliver successful programs that:
These organizations help support our mission by offering free or subsidized spay and neuter clinics, adoption, rescue, foster and transport services, obedience training and pet care education; and, they are directly involved in the fight against the inhumane treatment of animals.
Collectively, we promote the adoption of companion pets from local shelters and discourage the purchase of pets from pet stores that obtain animals from commercial puppy factories know as “puppy mills.”
We are fierce advocates of a compassion revolution — a collective effort by animal advocates across our country to work together to end animal overpopulation and cruelty. This may seem like an overwhelming challenge, but impossible tasks can be accomplished if we take them on in measured steps.
“And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.”
Libba Bray, The Sweet Far Thing
In compliance with IRS tax laws, we only accept applications from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. We do not provide funding to individuals or for political campaigns and legislative lobbying efforts.
The focus of our grant program is currently the Namaste Spay and Neuter initiative, which we believe will have the most significant impact on animals nationwide. We prioritize applications that seek to implement this initiative.
