Five New Grants Awarded To Southern California Rescue Groups

Grants Awarded To Six Southern California Rescue Groups

The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation is thrilled to announce the award of five new grants to Southern California rescue groups. The goal of these 2015 grants is to assist local rescues with their operation costs related to pulling rescue dogs from SoCal animal shelters. While our grantees are diverse, their goal is shared: to help homeless dogs and cats find forever homes.

Grants were provided to Coastal German Shepherd Rescue, Much Love Animal Rescue, the Brittany Foundation, Wags and Walks and Boxer Rescue Los Angeles.

Throughout 2015, we will be highlighting some of the successes of the grants and the animals we are able to save together.
