Katherine Heigl’s Animal Charity

Katherine Heigl starts companion animal charity in memory of her brother.

Katherine Heigl has donated $1 million to a new project called Compassion Revolution that helps companion animals. Compassion Revolution is supported by animal-protection organizations such as Cesar Millan’s Millan Foundation, as well as Heigl’s own charity, the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation (JDHF). JDHF was founded by Heigl and her mother in memory of their late brother and son, Jason, who was killed in 1986. The organization’s mission is to “eliminate needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference, and ignorance,” and it does so through programs such as free spaying and neutering, transport of shelter dogs, and an internal rescue group.
