The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was founded in 2008 by Nancy and Katherine Heigl. The Heigls’ desire to end animal cruelty and abuse inspired them to create an organization dedicated to animal welfare that would celebrate the compassion, kindness and memory of a beloved son and brother.
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.
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.
