that is required for the two adorable pups.
So if you would like to help and meet the criteria below we want to hear from you! (more…)

We are looking for volunteers in the Los Angeles area to foster some of our amazing Heigl Hounds while we search for
homes for them. Fostering involves opening your home to an animal in need on a temporary basis, to provide food, water,
shelter and most importantly personal care and attention. Dogs thrive and are healthier in a loving environment.

The duration of a foster varies from a few weeks to several months, depending on how soon the dogs are adopted.
With smaller dogs or puppies – who can be more easily placed, the foster period is often as little as three weeks, whereas
with larger dogs or certain breeds which are harder to home, the duration is typically a number of months. Other factors,
such as the recovery of the dog from medical treatment, illness or surgery can also influence the length of time they require
care before they are ready for adoption. (more…)

Many of you have been following the story of Sochi and Adler over the past few days and will be aware of the two pups rescued from
Russia this weekend by members of the press covering the Olympics and staff associated with the US Olympic team.
We wanted to give everyone an update on the health of the dogs, address some confusion about the transport process and answer
some of the common questions that we have received from those of you who have been touched by their story.

JDHF co-founders Katherine Heigl and Nancy Heigl visited Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday afternoon to complete a very special rescue!
They were there to greet two dogs that had travelled all the way from Sochi, Russia, with E! News Olympics correspondent Ali Fedotowsky, and to help
find loving homes for them.
