The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation…
I am an animal lover, big time! I grew up with pets in my home always. Even though at the moment my two furry friends are a fat black cat and a never growing up little monster ferret, I love dogs. I had a dog for 11 years, truly family member, who’s loss even after many years still causes pain, but I guess that is normal, when you loose someone you grew up with.
Today I want to introduce a very cool organization that saves both dogs and cats, creates home for them. I was mostly happy about how many fight dogs they save, since it’s a race that is completely misunderstood and therefore one of most difficult once to save, considering they were forbidden in some countries.
The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was founded in 2008, by Nancy and Katherine Heigl ( yes, the lovely actress Katherine Heigl). The Heigl’s desire to end 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.
On September 23rd 1986, Jason was in a tragic car accident and suffered massive brain damage while returning to New Canaan High School with three friends. He died one week later in Norwalk Hospital and the family decided to donate all his organs to help others live. He was 15 years old.
Throughout his brief lifetime Jason loved all animals, especially dogs, cats and monkeys and he lived his life extending compassion and kindness to all creatures great and small. The Foundation is his legacy.
The goal of the JDHF is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance.
